Painting your home is one of the quickest, and least expensive ways to add loads of personality and style. Whether you’re moving into a new build with generic beige on every wall, or an older home with a current color palate that’s just not your taste, it’s exciting to put your own stamp on your living space.
That said, it’s important to consider how the paint colors you choose will work together. Choosing wall colors that compliment your furniture and flooring can be daunting in itself, but ensuring that they also work together to build a cohesive and tasteful whole-house color scheme is even more tricky.
Here are 12 of our favorite, tried and true, paint colors that will work together in any living space, and stand the test of time. Mix and match to create a beautiful home that makes an impact!

Benjamin Moore, Hale Navy: Navy is a classic and this dark and moody color will make an impact. Use it in an office for a sophisticated setting or in a boy’s room with touches of gray and orange.
Benjamin Moore, Gray Wisp: More green than gray, this paint is still considered a neutral since it compliments so many other tones (think navy, dark gray, hunter green, even pink!). Great for a bedroom or a kitchen!
Benjamin Moore, Cloud White: Choosing whites can be tricky! This one isn’t too yellow and not too bright. Perfect for any room where you want the rest of the décor to take the lead.
Benjamin Moore, Revere Pewter: A designer favorite! This color is the perfect greige (not quite gray, not quite beige) and is one of the most popular colors on the market for a reason. Not too saturated, but still a noticeable color on the walls. Great for your main living spaces.
Benjamin Moore, Storm: A moody gray, this color will add drama and elegance to any space. Would be perfect in an office and will pop against bright white trim.
Benjamin Moore, Rushing River: A beautiful gray/green, this sage color provides just enough color while still staying mostly neutral. This would be perfect in a den, or use it to paint furniture or built-ins for an unexpected pop!
Benjamin Moore, Palladian Blue: A tranquil blueish-green, this color is saturated and calming. It really pops against white trim and would be perfect in a bathroom or kitchen. It would also be a fun punch of color in a playroom!
Benjamin Moore, Love and Happiness: Pinks are hard to pin down—some too purple, some too red. This one is a pink that leans towards coral, keeping it fresh and vibrant. Beautiful in a little girl’s room. It would also be a fun accent color throughout your home. Think front door, inside of a closet, or as an accent wall!
Benjamin Moore, Gray Owl: This gorgeous cool gray picks up green and blue tones depending on lighting and the environment/décor that surrounds it. It pairs beautifully with white and would be perfect in any room of the house.
Benjamin Moore, Ballet White: More cream than the name implies, this neutral paint is anything but drab. With warm undertones, this color looks good in any light and would make the perfect inconspicuous backdrop for boldly patterned furniture, bedding, or rugs.
Benjamin Moore, Van Cortland Blue: A dusty blue, it reminds us of a quaint cottage by the ocean. Cute for a babies’ room or a mudroom.
Benjamin Moore, Whispering Spring: A light and airy blue that’s not too cold or sterile, it compliments many wood tones and makes a statement without being too visually overwhelming. This color makes small spaces feel bigger. Great for bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms!
