I don’t always get paint colors right. Ok, I almost NEVER get paint colors right. BUT, when I do get house paint colors right, I love how it looks. Paint, in my opinion, is hard to pick out. How rooms are laid out in relation to windows makes different paint colors look different. How a whole room looks painted a color is different than what a large swatch looks like. Just in general, I find picking out house paint colors to be hard.
I have found a few paint colors that I absolutely love though, so I thought I’d share them with you.
House Paint Colors – Just Our Favorites
We love Cracked Pepper by Behr so much that we’ve used it all over our house! The front doors, the kitchen, the entry doors, the upstairs bathroom nook, etc.! It’s such a great blue/black color.
Ultra White by Valspar (Eggshell) is another favorite. How great does it look in our master bedroom?
We also used it in our upstairs bathroom nook, closet, kitchen, eat-in kitchen and entryway. Seriously, it’s a good one.
So, we also use Ultra White Valspar on our trim but we use it in semi-gloss. It’s nice and bright and pair perfectly with everything else.
The hallway and Greyson’s bathroom have a gray and it’s Grey Husky by Benjamin Moore.
It was one of the first colors that we used in the house and actually had the living room painted that for a few years and I still love the color.
So, the list isn’t big but those are the paint colors that we love.
You know how I was talking about how paint colors can be great in some rooms and not in others? Well, I absolutely love the white paint that we use but I recently used it in our living room and am still having a hard time with it in there. I did just realize a few weeks ago that the trim in the living room (and the crown) isn’t painted my favorite bright trim color (Ultra White by Valspar in Semi-Gloss) so I’m thinking that *might* be the problem. I’m going to test my theory sometime soon.
One more thing to note, when I am painting woodwork, I always have my local paint store color-match whatever my color is in Benjamin Moore Advance. In my opinion, it’s the best paint on the market for wood. So, anytime you have seen me paint wood (trim, casings, cabinets, etc.) I’ve used Benjamin Moore Advance line (not sponsored, just love).
Not sure if this was helpful or not, but I hope it was.
