Thinking of what colors to paint your entire house can seem overwhelming.  Most of the time we like to keep it simple, two great base colors a deeper accent tone and then a coordinating trim color, if your trim is being painted.  These colors would also look great with natural wood tones as well!

Warm tones:  SW creamy is one of my all time favorite neutrals, it looks great against a white trim without looking yellow or pink.  SW cityscape is a little deeper but not so dark that it can’t be used for more than an accent.  Small accents of BM hamilton blue really pulls the warmth of this palette together. It’s a color that evokes the feeling of being outside on a warm sunny day.

WARM TONE HINT: SW cityscape also makes a great cabinet color in a bathroom or kitchen.

Neutral tones:  This palette starts off with BM gray owl. This color has a tendency to go either gray or slightly blue but when paired with a strong neutral such as SW platinum gray it becomes the perfect color.  To add in a little mid century modern feel we love pairing this with SW knoxville gray.  The end result of this palette is one that plays to lots of fun playful artwork or all neutral furniture.

Cool tones:  Benjamin Moore called this color classic gray for a reason!  It’s a great neutral that can hold its own in all rooms of a house.  Small amounts of SW aloof gray and SW dried thyme cool this pairing down and give it that sleek modern feel.
