Advice regarding the best paint colors may be our most frequently asked question in our DM's on social media, and for good reason! After all, the right (or wrong) paint color can make or break a design. Lighting in your specific space and the other elements within a room heavily affect how a color looks on vertical walls and of course you've got to consider the undertones of any color you're considering. All that to say that this list of paint colors should be taken with a grain of salt, and always try samples in your space before committing to a specific color.
Scroll through for my favorite paint colors we've used in real projects from the recent past!
BENJAMIN MOORE PALE OAK
We used this warm taupey greige in this primary bathroom renovation for repeat clients. It was the perfect compliment to the beautiful stone floor we selected for this serene, spa like retreat.
BENJAMIN MOORE CLASSIC GRAY
A beautiful greige (gray-beige) that leans gray or beige depending on light exposure and other elements in the room. In my studio office, it leans towards a warm gray. I could not love it more.
BENJAMIN MOORE PASHMINA
This color is beyond beautiful with wood tone furniture and leather! So yummy! I've used it in both interior and exterior projects and clients have loved it no matter where we've used it.
BENJAMIN MOORE REVERE PEWTER
There's a reason this is the number one Benjamin Moore paint color many years running. Like Benjamin Moore Classic Gray above, it's a great chameleon color that works with both beiges and grays and is a great neutral backdrop color for any type of room. Above we used it as the main interior wall color for a whole house renovation and below in an updated secondary bathroom project.
SHERWIN WILLIAMS UNIVERSAL KHAKI
The gray trend is finally over (thank goodness), all white everything is all the rage (as are earth tones) but call me crazy, I like a little color on the wall. Sherwin Williams Universal Khaki is a great color to use in a room where you're using bold colors in your accents like these chartreuse spotted drapery panels. It's a rich color that's perfect for a strong background color and holds its own with its color competitors.
