Painting is a simple and inexpensive way to refresh your home, mix things up, or even enhance your mood—all of which we could use right now. However, when it comes to color, the options might be overwhelming and paralyze you before you even pick up your paintbrush. Benjamin Moore actually has 157 different hues of white—talk about decision paralysis.

Consider the undertones while choosing a white. Cool undertones give the room a more crisp appearance, but warm undertones keep things, well, warmer. Allow the remainder of the area to help you choose the ideal undertone—do your furniture and accessories lean toward warmer browns, reds, oranges, and yellows? If this is the case, seek white paint with these brighter undertones. Do the inverse for blacks, grays, and cold blues.

Set the tone for timeless elegance.


There are many more hues of gray than 50, and when it comes to painting, gray gives a refined flair to whatever area it enters. Lighter colors look well on any room's walls, especially when contrasted with white trim or molding for a sharp, clean aesthetic. If you want to add drama, choose a bolder color like Soot or Pewter and adorn an accent wall with it.


When selecting a color, consider your room's undertones first, then decide how dark (or light) you want to go.


Colors that are tried and tested and create a comfortable statement


Don't bother singing the blues. This color is said to stimulate productivity as well as tranquility, making it a perfect home office or kitchen partner. When coupled with white flooring and natural wood furnishings, a bold, Kensington Blue-painted pantry and cabinets complement a neutral kitchen. When coupled with more modest furnishings and white crown molding, Hale Navy pops out in dining rooms or home offices.


If you're not quite ready to make such a bold blue statement, lighter tones like Benjamin Moore's Blue Lace can be used to cover all of the walls without being overpowering.

The year's "new blue" combines tradition and innovation.


Green has replaced blue as the color of the year! This is a popular color that is quickly becoming popular. But green is so much more than lime or fresh-cut grass—the deep, mossy green of Benjamin Moore's Vintage Vogue holds its own with a gray undertone, while Newburg Green brings out a deeper teal. Both of these colors stand out when used as an accent color on furniture and cabinetry.


Looking to spice up your gray game? Moonshine is more of a gray with green undertones, allowing you to dip your toes into the color pool before fully immersing yourself.
