The Best Paint Colors for Your Home

Our interior paint colors have changed over the years, but today I am sharing my current favorites for the best paint colors.  I am really into creams, grays and anything navy right now, and I add pops of color with accent pieces. I am asked all the time about the navy in our family room, and it is a gorgeous color.  It is Night View by Valspar, and I absolutely love the deep navy color.

I also painted the wall separating the family room and kitchen this gorgeous shade of blue, and you can see the gallery wall HERE. Although it is not complete, I am slowly repainting all our interior doors in Orion Gray by BEHR.

Be careful when painting interior doors because it is impossible to stop at just one!  You can see more details on the DIY laundry room remodel that began my door painting craziness. If you want a brighter navy, try Midnight Show by Navy.  It creates the perfect accent wall in my boys’ room.

You can see more pictures of my boys’ room as well as the tutorial for the board and batten wall by going here. If you are on the search for a pretty gray, try Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams.  I often recommend it to clients who want a neutral, and it works in any space and/or lighting.    

This bathroom was a recent remodel, and you can see all the before and after photos by going here. I prefer a cream over a white in our home because it feels warmer to me (and we have off-white trim).  I have used Coconut Milk by Valspar often in our home – including our master bedroom.  You can see more on our master remodel by going here.

I recently discovered Swiss Coffee by BEHR paint, and it is less creamy than the coconut milk.  

It is gorgeous – especially if you are looking for an off-white color.

  1. Hi Sara!! This is Gena Moore….Greenville! :). I am enjoying your blog….you
    Are very accomplished and I enjoy everything you share.
    I am going to paint the bedroom and get new carpet….maybe a ship lap wall??
    My home is all in warm colors,……khaki, brick red accent wall….dark green next to
    Oak cabinets and oak hardwood floors…..Sooooo, what color do I do the bedroom IN?? I feel tired of the current tan/beige, but not sure if going to a
    Light grey is a sensible choice? I appreciate your opinion. Thank you!

    1. Hi Gena! It’s good to hear from you, and I hope you’re doing well! What about trying a Greige? It’s sort of in-between gray and beige – a warmer gray! Or, I don’t think it’s weird to try a gray in your bedroom. It’s completely separate from the rest of the home. Good luck!!

  2. Blessings with you Sara. All your troubles will pass. Love your writings!
    Thanks for the colors again. I just picked out my bathroom remodel colors.
