What Are the Most Popular Paints and Colors for Interior Painting?

It is always a great time for some interior painting in Westchester! If the look of your home is getting a bit outdated, or you just want to give your home a new vibe, interior painting is a great option. Painting is one of the less-expensive forms of home renovation, but it can still completely transform the look and feel of a home. It is also a great option if you want to spruce up your house in preparation for putting it on the market.

You can always paint your home whatever colors you like, but it’s good to know the current trends – especially if you’re looking to sell. So, we wanted to talk about current trends at the end of 2022, and what sort of looks will likely be popular in 2023.

Choosing A Great Trendy Look for Your Interior Painting

Generally speaking, interior painting trends in 2022 have been about neutrality and tranquility. The concept is that the paint job shouldn’t draw attention to itself, but rather act as a background for your interior decor. Relatively neutral paint jobs – such as whites, beiges, and grays – allow you much more freedom to decorate however you like, without having to worry about color coordination with your walls.

If that seems a bit bland, the solution is to add splashes of color to other pieces of furniture instead. For example, a white wall is offset by bold shelves painted blue or green. It creates an extremely clean look that pulls all attention to your decor.

While trends change over time, of course, we expect this basic style to be around for a while due to how much freedom it gives homeowners.

So, now let’s talk about specific paints we’ve been using lately, or that clients have requested for their homes. These are just suggestions but can be a great jumping-off point if you’re looking for ideas and inspiration!

Five Popular Interior Painting Colors For 2022-23

  1. Benjamin Moore Classic Gray (1548)

Benjamin Moore’s Classic Gray is actually a very light gray color that typically reads more like off-white or even beige. It’s highly popular because of its versatility, as it can go in virtually any room in the house without a problem. It also maintains its look under a variety of lighting conditions and can match a room with either light or dark color schemes. It’s particularly useful as a “white” color for rooms you keep a bit darker.

  1. Sherwin Williams Sea Salt (SW 6204)

Sea Salt is a very interesting gray-green paint with just a hint of blue, and it’s particularly popular for people looking for a coastal or nautical-inspired theme. We’ve put it in a lot of bathrooms and kitchens! It also has an odd tendency to look a bit different under various lighting schemes, which can be good or bad depending on the situation. We strongly suggest using paint swatches or test paint areas to see how it looks over the course of a day, before committing.

  1. PPG Delicate White (1001-1)

PPG Delicate White is one of the ‘purer’ white paints being commonly used, and it seems particularly popular for bedrooms. As the name suggests, it’s extremely unobtrusive and works well in a room with lighter elements, such as white cabinetry. One thing to be aware of is that it has a slight yellow tint, which can come out if paired with yellow-tinted lighting.

  1. Sherwin Williams Pure White (SW 7005)

Despite the name, Pure White is actually so far off-white that it’s bordering on being taupe. Nevertheless, it does read as ‘white’ in many lighting conditions and works particularly well as a contrast against gray elements – it brings them out, without overwhelming them with blinding whiteness. We also find it pairs well with light-colored stonework and is a good choice for a living room with a fireplace.

  1. Farrow and Ball Hague Blue (No. 30)

Looking for something darker, which conveys elegance and a luxurious feel without drawing attention to itself? Hague Blue is our pick. It’s a dark gray-blue, with a bit of green. What’s remarkable about it is that it can offset either light or dark-colored trim and furniture equally well. It’s particularly popular for home offices or studies, where its mature feel fits in perfectly.
