Here at Stephens Homes, we adore accent paint colors to add a splash of character to your space. The right accent can transform a space, giving it personality and mood without overwhelming it.
Accent Paint Colors: Beautiful Blues
Blue, in its versatility, ranges from the calmness of a clear sky to the depth of the ocean. It’s a great choice for offices and reading nooks, where you need focus. Remember, the undertones matter. A blue with a gray undertone can be quite sophisticated, while a blue with a green undertone can feel more casual and beachy.
Cyberspace by Sherwin Williams is perfect for a modern look with its deep, rich tone.
Grays Harbor offers a softer approach, blending with a variety of decor styles.
For a classic navy, turn to Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy or Westcott Navy, which provide timeless elegance.
And if you’re after a dark, starry-night feel, Behr’s Night Flight is an ideal pick.
Accent Paint Colors: Galant Greens
Green has an innate freshness and a naturesque vibe. It’s perfect for spaces where you want to instill a sense of calm or bring an organic touch. Living rooms, bedrooms, and even bathrooms can benefit from this earthy hue. When painting, always consider the lighting – natural light brings out the vibrancy of green, and different times of day can alter its shade and warmth.
Antique Pewter by Sherwin Williams offers a muted elegance, while Pewter Green provides a more profound, contemplative vibe.
Vintage Vogue by Benjamin Moore is robust and moody, suitable for an accent wall or cabinets.
Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke delivers a smoky ambiance that pairs well with natural wood or leather.
And for a touch of the outdoors, Behr’s Northwoods is your go-to, grounding the space with its forest-inspired depth.
Painting Tips for the Best Finish
When it comes to painting, preparation is key. Use high-quality paints, and don’t skimp on the priming process. Test your colors with sizable swatches in different lighting conditions. And most importantly, know the undertones of your surrounding design elements to create a harmonious space.
