Decorist Designer Marley Loftus is currently loving Peachy Keen satin finish by Benjamin Moore. “I love how bright, bold, and playful this color is. It is the perfect paint color to use as an accent wall or to give a happy pop of color in a bedroom, nursery, office, or powder room. It pairs well with a neutral palette and will breathe life into any room.”

Farrow & Ball’s, Parma Gray is a cool, icy blue that feels fresh and crisp in any room. Use this shade on an accent wall for a springy pop of color, or incorporate into the kitchen to add a dose of serenity to your morning routine. The blue hue is a wonderful update to the standard cool gray paint and truly sparks joy no matter what room it’s used in.

Trade in your stark white paint for a light beige that almost reads off-white. Clare Paint’s No Filter is just that. A sandy shade of beige with warm undertones that, as the name suggests, requires no filter. Beige doesn’t necessarily scream spring, but it is a calming neutral that blends into each season, and room, seamlessly.

“October Mist is actually Benjamin Moore's color of the year, and contrary to the name, it is the perfect gentle green to welcome those spring vibes,” says Decorist designer, Elizabeth Herrera. “Subtle silvery gray undertones help to create a quiet, peaceful green. It is meant to inspire creativity and works wonderfully with other muted colors. I love the idea of pairing warm, natural wood tones with it to create an earthy, organic feel or a subtle touch of pink or lavender to evoke a whimsical, floral palette.”

The pantone color of the year may be Very Peri, but we’re going for a much more subtle take on the purple shade this season. Nothing says brighter days are ahead like a pale pastel paint. Try Backdrop Home’s, Not So Delicate for a gray-lavender hue that has just a hint of pink. Try painting a bedroom or bathroom in this color for a calming effect that doesn’t feel overwhelming or overly girly in your space.
