Earlier today I deleted my Instagram highlight called “Paint Colors” and shortly after someone had asked where it went. I hadn’t updated it with all the new colors I’ve tried lately so I figured it was outdated but it was the encouragement I needed to finally sit down and write this list that I probably should have wrote a year ago… “Every Paint Color I’ve Ever Used”. 🙂 I am sure this will continue to grow as time goes on but hopefully it can serve as a helpful resource for those interested in painting their homes. Hope you like greens! And beige/greige. There are a lot of those. Also, since we’re all likely not going to a home improvement store anytime soon, I wanted to let you in on some paint website secrets! First of all, if you haven’t tried this paint company yet, you should definitely sift through their site and browse all of what they have to offer during times like these. They deliver paint to your door along with REALLY great supply kits so you don’t even have to worry about leaving your home for any brushes, rollers, trays, etc. The quality is incredible and they have some of the prettiest colors I’ve seen! Also, Home Depot delivers and has a really resourceful paint section on their website to browse samples. If you want to try out some color swatches, Clare Paint has great swatches and so does this website, Samplize, that I recently discovered. They offer handpainted giant swatches that really help so you don’t have to worry about getting sample sizes of everything.

Thank you so much for putting this together. This is great information. How come your photos make the colors like White Dove and Pure White look White, yet the swatches look more the mint green side?
I honestly thought that SAME thing. I feel like their swatches look very inaccurate online. White Dove is definitely NOT green-tinted in my opinion but I thought that same thing when I was searching for the swatch online for this post!
This is an amazing resource! I love your overall aesthetic in every room you do! I’m helping my parents with a master bath/bedroom reno and this is really helping me guide the design and narrow things down! As far as complimentary colors ie: vanity color and wall color in a bathroom, did you use the listed complimentary colors on the back of the swatch or trial and error? Any insight would be great! So. Many. Options 😂
Best post ever! Wait but I’m dumb… is there a difference between the down pipe and downpipe?
ah no! no difference at all! need to fix that!
What color did you use for the dining room archway? Love it! Looks like some sort of black but if you can please share which exact color much appreciated.
Yes, it is a black! I got it from Benjamin Moore and the color name is “Black” (HC-190) in a matte finish.
