Pratt&Lambert or BM Aura

saydeNovember 27, 2012

We painted the sunroom with Pratt & Lambert in the color 1493 Rockingham Green about (dare I say it) 14 years ago. It's time to repaint! We still love the color but have read good things about BM Aura and used Aura in the kitchen with success. Wondering whether to go with the P&L again or get the color matched in the Aura. Thanks to a friend who loved the color and had it made up in Aura for her den, I already have the formula. Any thought about which way to go?

Aura is the way to go if you have the $$ to spend. For a sunroom that is not going to get much abuse on the walls ,I would go with the P&L

I have and like both. The Aura is definitely the better paint, and the price is about the same for the P&L Accolade. I prefer P&L's velvet finish and many of the colors are more interesting, but the Aura applies better, I think.
