1. Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year: Upward

Upward (SW 6239) is a light blue hue with gray undertones that is great for homes. The chosen color is the perfect choice to bring peace and tranquility we could all use in our lives. Upward (SW 6239) is perfect for many areas of the home. Whether it’s an accent wall in the living room or the entire room itself, this light blue hue can set the tone for relaxation and open-mindedness. 

2. Bold Black

If you’re looking for a more dramatic option for your home, it is hard to go wrong with black. This color has been really successful as a backdrop to a different color door, or a two toned look with lighter cabinets on top and this on the bottom. When used for cabinets that include a kitchen island, this color is particularly adept at hiding dings and scuff marks from feisty kids and pets. We recommend The Spruce Best Home Phantom Black.

3. A Sea Green

Light green is a stunning choice for any home. This pop of color can add a whimsical feel to your space and can match many other colors. If you decide to have this particular color added to your home, consider adding a fun textured runner rug and natural wood accents to your space for an effortless look!

Choosing the Best Paint Colors for Your Home

Choosing the perfect paint color for your home can be a difficult task. The color of the walls in your home sets the tone and mood for years to come. You want to make sure you are happy with the color and conveys your style in the best way possible. Here are a few tips: 

Look At Your Home and Furniture

Most people tend to want to choose a paint color and then begin looking for furniture and décor. However, it should be the other way around! You will realize it is a lot easier to choose a paint color after you already chose the furniture and decor. You’ll be able to tell which paint color will match with your funky yellow armchair better than what armchair will match a can of paint.

Test the Paint First 

It is a good idea to put testers of the colors and shades you like and then paint them onto small sections of your wall. A lot of the time paint looks different in the store than how it will actually look to you in your home. Leave it on for a few days so you can really get a feel for how it will look in different lights. You may really like how one color looks during the sundown, or how another looks early in the morning. This isn’t something you’d know until you put these testers out.
