“What paint color is that?” is a question I get on a daily basis, so here is a complete list of our home’s colors. They’re a combination of warm and cool yet neutral and bold paint colors!
One question I get on a weekly basis is, “what paint is that?” Whether it’s my kitchen cabinets or the walls in our master bedroom, you guys want paint color sources! I hate that it’s taken me so long to write this post because it’s truly something I should have done a long time ago so that I’d have our home’s paint colors all in one place.
Today I’ve got a complete list of paint colors used in our home as of now. This list will be updated at some point this year due to current projects being wrapped up but it’s complete for now. Here’s our favorite neutral and bold colors for a traditional home.
Simply White – Benjamin Moore
I not only love Simply White for walls but so trim as well. We’ve used It on a number of our rooms and on the trim in our home. Our family room is the lastest space to be painted in SW, along with the trim. It’s a warm white that really gives the room a cozy yet light feel. It can have a pint undertone. Always use a sample in your space first to prevent unwanted undertones in your space.
Halo – Benjamin Moore
I would call Halo a greige. It’s gray. It’s beige. It a perfect color for those who want a color but still want a great neutral. I love this color in our foyer that is south facing. When used in our north facing family room it had a very strong green undertone. Again check your lighting!
White Dove – Benjamin Moore
White Dove is one of my absolute favorite whites. Like SW, it’s a warm white and has such a creaminess to it. We first used it in our kitchen and breakfast nook. I loved it so much I replaced our gray walls in our bedroom with it as well. It’s a beautiful color for south or north facing rooms. Our breakfast nook is north facing, so it takes on a cooler tone, while our bedroom is south facing and takes on a warmer tone. Either way, it’s a winner!
Fieldstone – Benjamin Moore
Possibly one of the most popular colors in our house goes to our kitchen cabinets. WhT color are your cabinets is a question I get almost daily. Fieldstone is an interesting color and it depends on what time of day and on what space your looking at to what the color looks like. Most days our cabinets take on a slight blue-green color. Other days they appear almost greige. I’ve looked at photos of the color online in other homes and it looks even more different. It’s a color I’ve yet to tire of and really love in our kitchen. It seems to be a tricky color though.
Backwoods – Benjamin Moore
I’ve always loved green! When we remodeled our laundry room I quickly realized that the space needed some color. The walls are painted White Dove but it’s the Backwoods green that gives the space life. It’s a classic color that has a very colonial feel to it. I’ve seen it used in mud rooms, on cabinets and even in whole rooms. If you’re looking for some drama, this is your color!
Carbonized – Sherwin Williams
I love neutrals, friends. What I’ve discovered is that neutrals can be bold. Carbonized has become one of my favorite bold neutrals. We started with it in my husband’s office (paired with Simply White trim) and we loved the drama of it so much that we used it in our dining room. Both of these rooms are south facing and receive a lot of natural lighting. It adds just enough warmth and color.
Navajo White – Benjamin Moore
Navajo White just might be one of the trickiest colors I’ve used. Originally I had decided to use it in our master bedroom before I chose White Dove. I even painted several samples on the wall to be sure. Once the whole room was painted I quickly realized it was too much, too much peach that it. I was bummed because in other spaces the color is quite pretty. I found that our fireplace mantel was the perfect place for it. It pairs with the SW beautifully, with just the right amount of warmth.
Oxford White – Sherwin Williams
We used OW in our son’s room because I wanted awarm white without the overly yellow or pink undertones. It tends to be a cooler white without feeling sterile. I don’t think photos to it justice.
Graphite – Benjamin Moore
We went with Graphite for all of our doors in the house. It’s a great charcoal color. I didn’t want black but I didn’t want gray, so it was a perfect chose. Dark doors are great when it comes to finding grim and hand prints. It also adds a little unexpected color to neutral rooms. I love that boldly painted doors have become so popular!
Again, I’ll be adding to this list later on this year but for now I hope it answers a lot of questions. I’d love to know if you’ve used any of these colors in your home and what you think about them!
