What paint colour posts do people love the most?
I figured that since I shared colour trends with you from 2021 projects and my predictions for colour trends in 2022, I’d also share my top trending blog posts from this past year.
For each popular paint colour I also have a corresponding Perfect Colour Palette that provides you with the undertone, colour comparisons, the best white for trim and ceilings, plus 10 no-fail coordinating paint colours.
If you are considering any of these top paint colours in an upcoming decorating project for 2022, I’ll share links to those helpful paint resources below each listed colour as well.
Alright, let’s get to the Top 10.
Are you ready? Here we go!
1. White Dove by Benjamin Moore
With nearly 75k pageviews, White Dove is my most popular paint colour review blog post.
Despite this post being over three years old, Benjamin Moore’s White Dove is still one of our favourite whites for interior design projects. What about you?
2. Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams
I don’t specify Sherwin Williams paint as much as Benjamin Moore, but Sea Salt is a beauty. It’s similar in tone to Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore and comes in second place.
3. Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore
Ah, this colour has never steered us wrong! It’s a dark, moody classic that will never go out of style.
4. Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore
This paint was in the top 3 of my paint colour predictions for 2022.
Pale Oak is also one of my top-selling Perfect Colour Palettes of 2021. This is a popular neutral that will be around for a while.
5. Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore
I used this beautiful Blue-Green Gray in my very first commercial job. The transformation from the forest green walls was incredible.
You’ll have to read the post to see which type of office we used Gray Owl in!
6. Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore
We used this for a client’s main floor more than 4 years ago, but can you believe that we’ve never had it photographed! Doh! Maybe this year will be the year we finally do because I know you would love it.
I actually had a local friend reach out to hire me after she saw my design palette video using Swiss Coffee. She wanted to have that exact floral fabric for her custom draperies we installed and she also ordered the grasscloth wallpaper from us to be a backdrop in her mudroom!
7. Elephant’s Breath Farrow & Ball
Finally, a Farrow & Ball paint colour review in my top 10! And despite its peculiar name, isn’t this one a beauty?
8. Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore
On my Instagram stories this week, someone asked my opinion on the most perfect gray paint colour. Classic Gray was my answer.
Of course, one gray is not going to be perfect for every interior design project, but this is currently my favourite, and one that we still regularly specify.
9. Wickham Gray by Benjamin Moore
Even though the colour gray as a popular neutral has officially come and gone, seeing us move more towards warmer beiges once more, many of you still love the blue-green grays.
Wickham Gray is still a winner in my book that looks lovely with many of the top quartz and other stone tiles.
10. Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball
Another Farrow & Ball paint colour squeaks into the Top 10 paint colours of 2021, this time a deep, moody blue. Blue is always on-trend and Hague Blue has a richness like no other.
While I have yet to use this colour, I’d love to use it on some custom cabinetry in a future décor project.
