Our favorite paint colors are like our favorite people: Always nice to be with and never overbearing. When choosing paint, it’s important to try a big test patch in the room, both near a window and in the darkest part. Many paint colors change as the light changes during the day; that can be a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s good to know before you paint an entire area. Have you ever wished you could just ask the best interior designer in Charleston for her favorite hues? Here are some of our favorite and most reliable paint colors:
Borrowed Light by Farrow and Ball
Borrowed Light is a divine pale blue that borders on light gray. This hue changes throughout the day depending on the light. It is subtle, calming, and cool, which is perfect for a master bathroom or master bedroom.
Cosmopolitan by Benjamin Moore
This is a soft taupe that has hints of gray with just a touch of beige and brown. This paint is transformative and depending on the fabrics, furniture, finishes, and even the lighting in a space, it sometimes appears to be more gray or can sometimes appear to be more of a beige. We love that it adds a subtle warmth to a space, but also provides a neutral canvas for furnishings and art to really shine and tell their own story.
Wevet by Farrow & Ball
Wevet is the perfect white. It’s almost translucent, which is why it’s named after the old Dorset term for a spider’s web. With grey undertones that don’t change color in the light, Wevet is a great backdrop for a gallery wall or highlighting your favorite work.
