Philipsburg, Montana, Philipsburg Blue, and How They are Related

Travel | Philipsburg, Montana

My brother has always been the adventurous one- in fact, at one point, he accused me (the definite homebody) for not preparing our parents at all for what was to come. So, it shouldn’t have been a surprised when he headed west to Montana after college. Just his packed car, his dog, Georgie, and hit the open road. Now that was brave in my book. He quickly settled into life in the small town of Philipsburg, working during the week and camping and fishing on the weekends. Aside from the somewhat regular June text that it was snowing, he seemed to enjoy being out west. I tagged along with my parents one June (thankfully, it wasn’t snowing) and could see why he liked it. Just look at these photos…

You can see why Benjamin Moore named one of its historic colors Philipsburg Blue. Benjamin Moore’s Historical paint line is based on 18th and 19th century North American architecture.

While debating 101 different cabinet colors for the beach cabin, I pulled out the Philipsburg Blue that we had used in our basement at the old house and our current house. It isn’t a color that I typically gush about (as I do with Wescott Navy, which you can see in our house here, here, and here) but it has such nice undertones and goes with almost any style. Soooo.. let the gushing begin… I love how it looks on our cabinets. It was the perfect darkness, lightness, and beachy American feel that I am trying to encapsulate in the cabin. And, since the cabin was built in 1912, I think that it qualifies as historic.

And don’t forget to check out these Air BnB’s (here and here) as possible accommodations… I haven’t stayed in them but they seem to have good reviews 🙂
