Favorite farmhouse paint colors that will give you that neutral farmhouse “fixer upper” touch throughout your home. A paint color for every room!
Farmhouse Paint Colors…Versatile & Cozy
I just love these farmhouse paint colors. They’re neutral, which makes them so versatile. The coziness they emit makes them perfection. If you love Fixer Upper style, many colors very similar to these have been used in the homes they’ve done. I also love that they work both in a modern farmhouse setting, as well as a more traditional or rustic farmhouse style, like mine. Benjamin Moore has so many fantastic colors, and I tend to gravitate toward that brand.
Now if you know Old Salt Farm, you know that all my walls are white, except one room, which is a dark gray. I have Decorator’s White throughout my home (walls–satin and trim–semi gloss), and it’s true white with a tiny bit of gray. I LOVE it. Simply White is in our basement, and it’s my favorite off-white/cream. I adore white walls, but I can use these other farmhouse paint colors to add dimension and contrast…like when I’m refinishing and painting furniture pieces.
If you’re not a white wall lover like I am, these other colors may be perfect on the walls of your home. Revere Pewter is a farmhouse favorite, and a really great “greige”. It goes with everything! Hale Navy is the perfect navy. I think it would be so adorable in a powder room, or office.
Paint Buying Tips
- Do you love the color, but would rather have it a little lighter? You can! Just ask to lighten it by a certain percentage.
- Yes, you can color match at other paint stores. However, know ahead of time that even though paint stores carry the color numbers for major paint brands, they can’t be exact. You may end up with something really close, but not just like the original paint.
- If you can, get a small sample of all the colors you’re considering. Paint a small section of each color on the same wall, so you can compare them in all types of light, and get a really good idea of their differences. I actually switched one of the paint colors in my home at the last second, because I was able to see that I didn’t love it as much as I thought I was going to once the sun hit the wall.
Happy Farmhouse Painting!
