Earth tone paint colors are our go-to when we’re looking to create a calm, comforting space.

Earth tones are colors that, well, look like earth. But don’t let your mind jump to mud colored browns! There’s an entire range of gorgeous earth-inspired hues and they’re making a big comeback in interior design. And rightfully so!

Whether you’re choosing a cabinet color for one specific room or selecting a color palette for your entire house, choosing the right hues can feel like a full-time job. The color palette you decide on will create the space’s vibe and ultimately set your home’s entire mood.

If you’re looking for inspiration, nature can be your best friend. We’ve rounded up five earth tone paint colors that we love for any and every space.

Looking to add some warmth and coziness to your home? Look no further than earth tone palettes. Check out #pinegroveproject’s mudroom. The combination of Benjamin Moore’s Creekside Green earth toned cabinets, the white oak bench, and dark floors creates a serene, nature-y environment with a hint of modern elegance. Pair it with brass accents and we can’t get enough!

These natural hues at #projectenchanting work together beautifully to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. Sherwin Williams’ Library Pewter was the perfect choice for the vanity. The browns and olive tones add warmth and depth, while the wallpaper pattern provides contrast and sophistication.

This combination of classic neutrals (check out our favorite white paints here) and soft earth tones come together to create a space that feels layered and so cozy. Unlike many beiges, this one has undertones of gray that gives your space a warm, snug feel. The completed look with Sherwin Williams’ Accessible Beige cabinets is minimal and sophisticated, yet still so inviting. Perfect for entertaining, which was important to our clients.
