You find yourself in the paint store, looking at thousands of paint chips and feel overwhelmed. You wonder how on earth you’ll ever find the right one.

Interior designers work with paint colors on a regular basis, and with experience come to rely on hues that work. We call those go-to-colors—colors that are tried and true.

Here are 12 designer picks that could be just what you’re looking for on your walls. I’ve personally used #’s 3, 5, 6, 9, and 12 and they were perfect choices for the spaces where they were used. Most importantly, my clients loved them.

 

What do you think? Did any of these paint colors spark an interest?

As always, buy a sample and try the color on a large swath of wall to be sure it’s a hue you love. Check it during the day and after dark before painting an entire room. What you thought was the perfect greige could end up looking pink!

Until next time…

Blessings from my home to yours,

Nancy
Dedicated to helping you design spaces that foster happiness and well-being
