Color trends come and go, but within these fads emerge some classic shades that withstand the test of time (and style). Here are five paint colors we have found easy to translate into any space. They are classic, inviting, and incredibly beautiful.
Benjamin Moore White Dove 0C-17
We used this inviting white to bring cleanliness and warmth to this kitchen renovation. Some whites come off as sterile and cold. Instead, this bright shade is begging you to come host a dinner for two…or 20.
Sherwin Williams Unusual Gray SW 7059
Unusual Gray is an enigma. Does it have green in it? What about blue? Changes in lighting allow this neutral gray to transition with the day. We use it in a variety of spaces. Here it stands as the backdrop to a bold and chipper work of art in an open concept kitchen.
Farrow and Ball Studio Green No. 93
One of our absolute favorite colors to bring drama into a room is Studio Green. We love it so much we used it in the Cashiers designer showhouse this year! This versatile green-black is an experience in itself. Appearing differently depending on its surroundings, Studio Green lends itself to virtually any style.
Farrow and Ball Hague Blue No. 30
Hague Blue is the new and improved navy of all of our nautical dreams.This vivid and sophisticated blue is a statement wherever its used. A favorite for making a built-in the focal point of the space, this blue pairs well with warm and cool tones. So good, it should be considered a neutral.
Salon Drab is anything but. This lovely mushroom shade evokes visions of tailored menswear and refined earth tones. Used here, it brings together a fireplace and built-ins and really grounds the space. Salon Drab gives intrigue to relatively neutral color palettes.
These colors stir up a range of feelings and give life to spaces that may otherwise be underwhelming. We have fallen in love with their versatility and beauty, and we believe they make all the difference. Whether you prefer clean and neutral or bright and bold, at the end of the day, choose whatever color makes you feel at home.
