Looking for a fresh new paint colour but don’t quite know where to start? Get inspired by these favourite paint colours from Sarah of Grace in My Space!
Hello friends! Today I’m kicking off another round of my popular paint colours series. It’s been a while since we’ve talked paint, so all week long I’ve asked some of my home blogger friends to stop by to share their top paint colour picks.
Looking to transform a space of your own with a fresh new paint colour? You’re definitely in the right place! Let’s just say these gals have a keen eye for style and each one has created her fair share of beautiful spaces. To me, it’s always so helpful to see actual paint colours used in real homes when I’m trying to make a selection.
By the end of the week, I’m certain you’ll be inspired and well on your way to picking up a paint brush. Spring is the perfect time for paint projects, both indoors and out. Now, let’s see what my first guest has in store for us…
Sarah’s Favourite Paint Colours
Hello! My name is Sarah Symonds and I blog about DIY, home interiors and country living over at Grace In My Space. A huge thank you to Shauna for inviting me to participate in this round up of favorite paint colors! My style tends to lean towards neutrals that are soft and warm to create a cozy home. I love how neutral paint colors allow me to be more outgoing with accent colors in furnishings and decor accents.
So to begin, I’ll share my favorite white for walls. Shiplap by Magnolia Home is the primary wall color in my main level. It is a soft white with grey undertones. It has just enough grey to keep it from feeling creamy, yet it isn’t a stark or cold tone. In darker rooms, it deepens its color to look like a very light grey.
I love that it still pairs well with warmer whites, like Benjamin Moore White Dove, which I have on all of my trim and kitchen cabinets.
Mixing and matching whites can be tricky, but these two complement each other beautifully.
Keeping it in the neutral family, next I’ll share the beautiful color we painted our decking last spring.
Sherwin Williams Studio Clay is a warm taupe that feels light on its own, but when paired with white, stands out as a rich clay color. It is very versatile and changes with the light to pull in the surrounding colors. I call these types of colors chameleon colors because they look and feel different depending on lighting and the surrounding palettes. This is definitely one to test in your space before buying, but it is a beautiful color nonetheless.
And for my favorite bold pop of color in our home, I’ll finish my favorite paint colors by sharing Regal Leaf by Magnolia Home. This deep green is a bold color choice with earthy undertones. It is a true green that varies in intensity with the light.
When using color, I like to stick to earth tones because they act as a neutral. Greens, blues and browns all pair well with many colors so using one of these options doesn’t limit the color palette for the rest of the room. I plan to bring this green into my sunroom for my next painting project!
I hope that you enjoy these beautiful colors. They all pair together beautifully as well to create a soothing color scheme for any room.
Thanks for taking the time to peruse my favorite colors! Happy painting my friends!
