Banish those winter blues with these fresh, springy hues.
The arrival of spring is the prime time to rethink your interiors, and a fresh coat of paint is the ideal pick-me-up for your home. Try out one of these 10 hues to freshen up your space.
Pink Ground (202), Farrow & Ball
This subtle pink (pictured above) evokes the best of spring’s fragrant garden roses. Use it in unexpected spots, like dens or home offices.
Green Thumb (CSP-870), Benjamin Moore
A cheerful, fresh-from-the-garden green is perfect for kitchen or laundry room walls.
Red Banner (4-11), Pratt & Lambert
Use this vibrant, poppy-hued red in a high-gloss finish to freshen up your front door for spring.
Swanky Gray (SW 6261), Sherwin-Williams
A silvery gray with hints of lilac, this shade is extremely versatile, ideal for bedrooms, kitchens, and hallways.
Citron (74), Farrow & Ball
This bold, daffodil yellow works wonders to brighten up a gloomy hallway, a tight space (like a powder room), or a tired piece of furniture.
Atmospheric (SW 6505), Sherwin-Williams
This delicate blue looks crisp when paired with glossy white trim or tile in a kitchen or bathroom.
Sweet Basil (445), Benjamin Moore
This deep, mossy green looks cozy but fresh on bedroom walls, especially when accented with touches of peachy pink, gold, and warm creamy white.
Palladian Blue (HC-144), Benjamin Moore
This watery blue-green designer favorite creates a perfectly serene master bedroom. It’s also an ideal haint blue for your porch ceilings.
Coral Flower, Glidden
A peony pink with hints of coral and gray, this color is a cheerful addition to dens and small offices; it even works in a high-gloss sheen on your front door. Tip: If the color is too vibrant, ask the paint store to cut it with white for a subtler look.
Brilliant Blue (OL672.6), Olympic
Use this saturated morning glory-like blue to liven up an office space, pairing it with shades of white, small-scale patterns, and metallic accents.
