Wow, time flies when you’re having fun, and this year we have been having loads of fun with our clients! To wrap up the 2023 year, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite paint colors we used in projects this year. From neutrals to blues, grays, and greens, and from walls to millwork and cabinets, these paints didn’t disappoint. Don’t worry though, these paints are sure to stick around far beyond 2023!


Benjamin Moore OC-25 Cloud Cover

#LotusLakeRemodel By Alma Homes

Benjamin Moore Cloud Cover is such a pretty and dainty shade of white, and it really makes you feel like you’re in the clouds. It pairs well with a true bright white or can be a stand alone show stopper. It is soft in color and brightens any space in a calm and charming manner. We paint this color anywhere from the trim and millwork to the interior of a whole house. Cloud Cover never disappoints!

Sherwin-Williams 0038 Library Pewter

#ProjectEnchanting By Alma Homes

Sherwin-Williams Library Pewter is one of those paint colors that changes in every room. It can vary from a gray to a taupe color, and we love how it looks in #ProjectEnchanting’s bathroom. The brass accents warm up the color and nicely tie the room together.

Sherwin-Williams 7036 Accessible Beige

#ProjectEnchanting By Alma Homes

Sherwin-Williams Accessible Beige runs on the warmer side of an off-white/light taupe paint. This color is popular for us to use just about anywhere from cabinets to walls to trim. Accessible Beige is perfect for any room in the home.


Benjamin Moore 2141-40 Creekside Green

#PineGroveProject By Alma Homes

Getting into our more “fun” colors is Benjamin Moore Creekside Green. This is for sure a favorite of ours. Look at this mudroom- S. T. U. N. N. I. N. G! The muted green is subtle, but without it, this room just wouldn’t be the same. Time to go paint a cabinet in your house this color!

Benjamin Moore 1567 Night Train

#LotusLakeRemodel By Alma Homes

If your looking for the perfect muted blue shade, look no further than Benjamin Moore Night Train. Blue will never go out of style. Sure trends sway, favoring different shades and tones, but there is no arguing that this kitchen will be “in” for many, many years to come.

Sherwin-Williams 7068 Grizzle Gray

#MendotaModern By Alma Homes

Last but not least, Sherwin-Williams Grizzle Gray could be considered neutral because it is gray AND non-neutral because it is bold. The whole interior of the office at #MendotaModern was painted this beautiful statement piece and it sure does wow us every time we see it!

We have just scratched the surface with all of the neutrals and non-neutral paints we love. We love finding new and exciting paint colors to make each of our clients’ homes feel unique, but these 2023 paint color picks will definitely stay in our tool belt!
