PAINT COLOR PALETTES BY DESIGN EXPERTS

Classic Paint Colors

They’re classic for a reason! Earthy, classic colors make a home feel clean yet warm and inviting. These colors are perfect for entertaining spaces like entryways, foyers, living rooms, and kitchens. They pair well with natural fabrics, plants, and wood tones to make your home feel settled and calm.

Modern Paint Colors

Sophisticated naturals give a modern feel to an accent wall or entire space. This color palette is perfect for a soft statement wall in a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, dining room, or living room. Combined with soft lighting, these colors add interest without overwhelming the area with color. Modern colors are ideal for people who want more interest in their home but are apprehensive about bold colors.

Neutral Paint Colors

Neutrals are the Swiss Army Knife of paint colors; they work with many design styles, including farmhouse, traditional, and minimalist. Interior designers use neutrals for rooms that require design flexibility, such as living rooms, kitchens, and hallways. White, taupe, grey, beige, ivory, and soft browns are the most common choices for interior paint at That 1 Painter. Our customers report that neutrals make their homes feel inviting, warm, and open.

Dark and Moody Paint Colors

This is a go-to wall color palette for rooms with heavy screen usage, such as a home office, screening room, TV room, or den. These deep, saturated hues create a mysterious, sophisticated, and introspective atmosphere. If you have light-colored furniture, art, or accent pieces you’d like to accentuate, this color scheme is for you!

Bold and Vibrant Paint Colors

Bold colors complement energy and creativity, making them the perfect playroom, office, or home gym choice. You can choose a single color with multiple shades for a monochromatic look or in combination with others for a more eclectic and vibrant aesthetic. When using bold colors, balance them with neutral tones or use them sparingly to enhance rather than overwhelm the space.

PAINT COLORS FOR YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE

Farmhouse Paint Colors

In farmhouse design, the palette of paint colors is crucial in creating the inviting, rustic aesthetic that defines the style. Soft, neutral colors are predominant, with shades of white, cream, and light brown as the backdrop, providing a bright and airy feel. Distressed finishes on furniture and trim can integrate darker elements like charcoal or navy, enhancing the rustic charm. These colors reflect the natural simplicity of farmhouse living, establishing a space that feels both timeless and lived-in.

Rustic Paint Colors

Rustic interior design embraces natural, rugged, and weathered beauty, creating a sense of warmth and homeliness deeply rooted in nature. In this design style, paint colors are essential in setting a comforting and earthy mood. Rich, warm tones such as terracotta, deep greens, and browns evoke a sense of the outdoors and bring the tranquility of nature indoors. The walls themselves may showcase natural or aged finishes, including textures that mimic stone or distressed wood, enhance the rustic aesthetic. This palette helps to blur the lines between inside and out, making spaces feel more expansive and seamlessly integrated with nature.

Mid-Century Modern Paint Colors

Mid-century modern interior design is celebrated for its sleek lines, organic forms, and emphasis on functionality. This style often features a palette that combines both neutral and bold colors, creating a look that is both retro and fresh. Neutrals like creamy white and taupe serve as the foundation and vibrant accent colors such as teal, mustard yellow, and deep orange are typically used to inject personality and flair into the space. These bolder shades reflect the optimism and playful spirit of the post-war era and are often incorporated through statement pieces like armchairs, artwork, or accent walls.

Coastal Paint Colors

Coastal interior design has light, breezy atmospheres reminiscent of a serene beachside retreat. The color palette is reminiscent of sea and sand, featuring a range of blues from soft sky to deep navy, which evoke the ocean. These are paired with crisp whites and sandy beiges to create a clean and relaxed environment, evoking a sense of calm and relaxation that one would expect from a coastal setting. This palette brightens the space and creates a visually cooling effect, perfect for evoking a sense of calm and relaxation that one would expect from a coastal setting.

Bohemian Paint Colors

Bohemian interior design is characterized by its eclectic and artistic nature, offering a rich tapestry of colors and textures that reflect a free-spirited, adventurous lifestyle. The paint palette is vibrant and layered, featuring jewel tones like burgundy, rich emerald green, and bold turquoise. Warmer hues such as mustard yellow, burnt orange, and dusty pink often complement these, creating a cozy yet dynamic atmosphere. Colorful tapestries or patterned wallpaper add further visual interest and depth.

Scandinavian Paint Colors

Scandinavian interior design is renowned for its simplicity, minimalism, and functionality, featuring a color palette that enhances the light and airy feel of spaces. Predominantly, Scandinavian interiors utilize a base of soft whites and light grays to maximize natural light and create an impression of spaciousness. Natural wood tones, from blond to ash, are also integral, adding warmth and organic texture to the design. This subtle yet effective use of color reflects the Scandinavian love for nature and simplicity and creates a comfortable, inviting environment that embodies modern elegance.

WHICH PAINT FINISH IS
BEST FOR YOU?

Matte or Flat paint absorbs light, helping to disguise imperfections in the wall texture. However, it isn't easy to clean and not very durable. It is a good choice for adults' bedrooms, ceilings, and low-traffic areas.

Eggshell or Satin paint isn’t overly shiny but is more durable than flat or matte paint. It is a good option for bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms because this paint can hide some imperfections in wall texture yet is durable enough to be cleaned occasionally.

Semi-Gloss paint is scrubbable and durable, but it doesn’t disguise imperfections in wall texture. It is a good paint for higher-traffic zones like kitchens, trim, cabinets, and doors.

Gloss paint is the shiniest option and is perfect for surfaces requiring cleaning and durability. However, this paint highlights surface imperfections, so we are picky about which cabinets, trim, and doors are good candidates.
