What color should I paint my walls?
That is the tricky question many homeowners worry about. Whether you like a bold, colorful room or something crisp and light, finding that perfect color everyone loves on walls can be an adventure.
Choosing neutral paint colors for your walls gives you a timeless style. Neutral tones also allow for fun pops of color in your home furnishings and decor choices. I absolutely love these neutral paint colors from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams that have also won over many other peoples’ hearts. Plus, they all look great everywhere and anywhere!
But before you paint…
Paint SAMPLING is your friend!
No need to paint those walls quite yet! Did you know that you can buy peel and stick paint samples from Samplize?! 😱 Even better, you can get $5 OFF your first sample with promo code FIRSTFIVE at checkout, making your first sample just 95¢ – all you pay is shipping!
These samples are hand-painted with the exact color you provide. Yes, even name brands like Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore! They sounded so great, Collin had to try them out for herself. No more mess trying out all your favorite colors, and they’re made with a low-tack, water-based adhesive so you don’t even need to worry about damaging your beautiful walls!
Here’s what we picked…
1. Agreeable Gray – SW 7029
If you’re looking for a warm gray paint, this is the perfect color! Agreeable Gray has a touch of beigey-brown to soften the cool gray color while eliminating the undertones of blue, green, or purple that grays frequently pull in certain lighting.
2. Sea Salt – SW 6204
This color is often referred to as the chameleon of neutral paint colors. Depending on your lighting situation, Sea Salt can look more blue, gray, or a warm in between. Regardless of which room you decide to paint, you can expect a soothing and fresh space.
3. Revere Pewter – HC-172
This warm gray will suit all your needs. Revere Pewter is ideal for an open concept, it can easily transition from one room to the next and complements many color schemes.
4. Pure White – OC-64
Pure White is part of Benjamin Moore’s off white collection and is an endlessly versatile color. Perfect for essentially any room or surface, this color looks amazing and fresh anywhere you put it.
5. Aloof Gray – SW 6197
The subtle undertones of coastal greens and blues in this gray paint will give you a versatile color for any chic home. Unlike many other blue paints, Aloof Gray won’t make your room feel cold and unwelcoming.
6. China White – OC-141
Looking for the perfect warm white? China White offers a creamy base which really warms a space. Even if you’re only looking to achieve the slightest color variations between white and off white, this one will create a perfect light and airy space.
7. Black Ink – 2127-20
Here is your bold pop of color! Black Ink adds so much drama to any space, perfect for accent walls or as a contrast against other light colors. This black, charcoal color only has a very slight blue/green undertone, which makes it the perfect dark neutral to pair with many other colors.
8. Metropolitan – AF-690
Voted 2019 Color of the Year, that’s enough reason for me to love Metropolitan. 😍 This stylish and sophisticated gray offers cool tones that will complement any neutral decor, while still keeping a space feeling warm and cozy.
9. Chantilly Lace – OC-65
Named after lace, this is exactly the beautiful color you will achieve with Chantilly Lace. Perfect for kitchen cabinets, it offers the right amount of cool tones and sophistication for any trim work or dream kitchen. 🙌
