Benjamin Moore Hawthorne Yellow HC-4

Official color page:Hawthorne Yellow HC-4
Color code:HC-4
Color name:Hawthorne Yellow
Brand:Benjamin Moore

HC-4 Hawthorne Yellow by Benjamin Moore is inspired by America’s historic landmarks and is part of the Benjamin Moore Historical Collection. It brightens up a space that doesn't get a lot of natural lighting. Hawthorne Yellow is just the right balance of soft and bright but not too green or orange. It’s perfect not only for kitchens (it goes brilliantly with white and light gray cabinets) but also dining rooms, bathrooms, or dark nooks and crannies. For a traditional space pair with reds and greens or for a more contemporary space with shades of grey and beige.
