New Neutrals

A neutral beige color palette is always a safe bet. If you prefer a more understated look, neutral colors like white, gray, and beige are still popular choices for home remodels. Neutrals can be easily paired with other colors and textures, making them a versatile option for any room.

Neutral hues we love: Sherwin Williams: Comfort Gray, Behr: Perfect Taupe, Kelly Moore: Mawmaw’s Pearls, and Sherwin Williams: Mindful Gray.

Gorgeous Greens

If you're looking for a fresh and calming color for your next interior remodel, consider green. Green is a versatile color that can range from soft and subtle to bold and bright, and it works well in any room of the house. It is associated with nature, which can bring a sense of tranquility and peacefulness to your space. Additionally, green promotes focus and productivity, making it an ideal color for home offices or study areas. 

Our favorite greens for home interiors: Sherwin Williams: Pewter Green, Kelly Moore: New Life, Dunn Edwards: Get Up and Go, and Glidden: Pale Green Moss. 

Feeling the Blues

Serene blue in any shade is a great way to set the mood in your remodel. From soft pastels to bold navy, blue can evoke calmness, serenity, and sophistication. It pairs well with a variety of colors and can be used to create a range of aesthetics and atmospheres.

How Do I Choose Paint Colors for My Home’s Interior?

Account for a Room’s Relative Location

Our happy clients love our nuanced input to get the exact shade just right during design. The direction a room faces influences the color best suited to the space. When painting a north-facing room, it's important to choose a color that can help brighten up the space. Due to the lack of natural sunlight in north-facing rooms, it's best to avoid dark colors as they can make the room feel smaller and darker. Instead, opt for light and warm colors like soft whites, light grays, or warm beige to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

For a south-facing room, you have more flexibility with color choices as it receives ample natural light throughout the day. Consider using cool colors like blues, greens, and light purples to create a calming and refreshing atmosphere. Warm colors like yellows, oranges, and reds can also work well in a south-facing room, bringing warmth and energy to the space.
