I know, I know, most of you don’t want to hear that beige paint is back.
This post is a sponsored post by Dutch Boy. I take pride in reviewing only products that fit my brand and will be beneficial to my readers. While this post is sponsored, all the opinions are my own.
When we moved into our home almost a decade ago, the first thing I did was paint over all the beige that filled our home. And now here I am, painting it back. But, after years of shades of gray, warmer colors are making a comeback.
Our dining room was a grayish green, but as much as I tried, the color never really worked for me. There is only one west-facing window in the room, and I wanted to brighten up the space.
After sampling several colors, Boy Mortar and Pestle 406-3DB was the winner. It has a very warm undertone and can look slightly pink in the evening light – which is exactly what I envisioned for our dining room.
I used Dutch Boy Platinum® Plus Interior Paint + Primer in an eggshell finish for the walls and painted all the trim the same color using Dutch Boy Platinum Plus Cabinet, Door, and Trim Paint in a Semi-Gloss Finish.
I love this paint, and I will admit I am a paint snob. It is high quality with great coverage, and I purchase mine at Menards (where they have some of the best people working the paint counter).
Beige Paint is Back
Champagnes, off-whites, and beiges are coming our way. They are subtle, calming, and dignified – the perfect backdrop for any home or style.
Before I continue on about how much I’m loving these updated beige paint colors, realize that your home is YOUR home. Use paint colors in your home that you love. You don’t have to follow the trends.
The beiges coming back are not those we remember from the 2000s.
The beiges you’ll see will feel more modern with more unique tones available.
Beige is an underrated neutral that has the ability to work with almost any color. You may be thinking white also has this ability (and white is huge in decor right now), but it does lack the warmth of beige.
Don’t discount beige – you may want to give it a second chance. It is sunny, warm, and inviting.
If you’re not quite ready for beige but need a change, try greige! It is the perfect blend of a little gray and a little beige.
