Popular paint color ideas for your kitchen, bathroom, living room, and even basement.

This is a peek inside a middle class home with style!

Painting is so relaxing to me, as weird as that sounds.

I love paint, I mean really love paint!

My husband doesn’t get it, but I really enjoy changing up a room with a quick coat of paint.

Paint is an affordable way to totally transform the look and feel of a room.

So, I have painted several space of the years and found some of my most favorite colors.

Natural Gray Behr Paint

My kitchen and living room are both painted Natural Gray by Behr Paint in Eggshell Finish.

When I first started to paint with this color it almost looked lavender, but I kept going because I already bought a gallon of the paint to see if it would get better.

The color came out great and it is a true gray color with no purple tones.

Natural Gray is a popular paint color because it works with different shades of gray, greige, light tan colors, turquoise, navy, and more.

I do regret not choosing a satin finish because the paint would be more wipe-able.

Georgian Bay Sherwin Williams

I used the paint Georgian Bay in my hall bath, but the paint color look terrible in that space.

So, I had almost an entire gallon of Georgian Bay paint sitting in my basement since I didn’t use it for my bathroom.

I found out I was expecting another boy, so I thought this blue would be perfect for an accent wall in the nursey.

This paint color is very bold, so I recommend only using it as an accent wall.

Rhino Behr Paint

I absolutely love the color Rhino by Behr paint because this color can really go with any space.

This Behr paint color is a very light minty green with a gray under tone.

Depending on the décor that you use in your space, this color will either appear more gray or more mint.

You really cant go wrong with this popular paint color by behr paint!

The Behr paint color Burnished Clay is a very popular paint color because it is the perfect greige.

This paint color will work in any space in your home and will match just about any home decor.

I painted my living room, dining room, stairway, and my hallway in this color because it works great as a neutral and compliments all of my furniture and flooring.

Riverway Sherwin Williams

I decided to go bold in this bathroom because it is easy to change the paint since the bathroom in small.

My entire home is various shades of gray, so I thought it would be a fun pop of color.

I love how this bathroom came out with Riverway Sherwin Williams.

This paint has a gray undertone to it, so it blends nicely with the color palate of my home.

Even though there is not a lot of light in this bathroom, this dark color works nicely in this bathroom.

Agreeable Gray Sherwin Williams

Agreeable gray might be the perfect gray that will stay in style forever!

This shade of gray by Sherwin Williams is warm, making a space feel cozy.

Sometimes the color gray can make a space feel cold and unwelcoming, but not agreeable gray!

Isn’t this the cutest office?! I think it might be more of a, “She Shed” because there is a matching wine rack on the opposing wall.

City Loft Sherwin Williams

This is a picture from our master bathroom in City Loft by Sherwin Williams.

This bathroom was previously Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams.

Sea Salt is a really nice color, but it just didn’t work with this outdated tile.

This bathroom has a ton of this tile on the floor, around the tub and shower.

It’s a big project that we did not want to take on, so I was trying to do simple inexpensive changes to update the space.

Painting, framing the mirror, and changing the paint color of the walls to City Loft really changed the feel in this space.

It makes the tile appear a little less outdated and ugly.

Sea Salt Sherwin Williams

I had left over Sea Salt paint from the master bathroom project, so I recently painted our laundry room in Sea Salt.

Changing the shelves, painting the ceiling, and adding fresh décor really brightened up this out dated space.

This laundry room came out really nice and under budget, but I am still not motivated to put away my laundry.

Worldly Gray Sherwin Williams

Worldly Gray is a darker greige color.

This color works really nicely with darker furniture, navy accents, and lighter curtains.

When we bought the house it had an ugly ceiling fan with palm leaves as the blades.

We never got around to replacing the fan, so we just went with the theme and added simple tropical decor.

Cavern Clay Sherwin Williams

This is a picture from our basement.

The floor was already a light orange tan color when we moved in, so I decided to pick a color that would compliment the floor.

I was nervous to go with a bold color because I typically pick light gray colors.

I choose this shade of orange because it has a cooler undertone to go with the rest of the paints that are in my home.

This color came out really nice and gave the room a cozy feel.

When we purchased our home the seller stage the house with a mirror in almost every room and this peacock painting in the master bedroom.

This peacock painting is not our taste, but we thought it was hilarious and couldn’t get rid of it.

The painting works great in our basement bar area as a conversation starter.
