😉 I always follow paint color trends, and while I may not always agree with the direction they’re going, I can share my favorites with you. I have incorporated some of these colors in my own home, and have admired some of them from afar or have used them on client projects.
Many of these fall under the umbrella of Sherwin Williams’ most popular paint colors, but all opinions are my own. And as a cabinet painter, I would consider any of these colors for kitchen cabinetry, as they’re all quite versatile. You all know my affinity for all things navy, so I’m guessing it’s no surprise that Naval is on my list of favorites from Sherwin Williams. And as a side note – my husband was the one who picked this out of two colors from which I was trying to decide.
It’s a pretty, warm gray that’s not too light and not too dark, and plays well with existing brown finishes (like so many of us have to work with in our homes). My love of contrast is showing up in some of my favorite Sherwin Williams paint colors, I know it. Case in point with the way Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick has highlighted her gorgeous fireplace in her new home with this rich gray – Cyberspace. They can be so striking, and don’t necessarily have to read as “dark” when you incorporate light furnishings or artwork into the room.
Again, you know that I’m one to paint a room late at night if the mood strikes, so I hope this tells you something about how much I like this color. This color carries downstairs to our basement, and pairs well with the board and batten that we installed down there.
It’s warm, without being yellow, and is a great color if you have to work with existing finishes like beige/brown counters or floors. It plays well with white trim and a stone exterior on this pretty home from The Gray Cottage. We have it in our Jack and Jill bathroom, and it’s also a great option for a restful bedroom retreat.
