The paint colors we choose ultimately set the backdrop for the way we live in our homes. Each coat of paint sets a visual tone and has the power to instantly transform a space. To help you find the perfect shade for your next painting project, we asked Erika Woelfel, Behr’s VP of color and creative services, to share the brand’s best-selling paint colors of all time.

“Consumers are leaning towards sophisticated neutrals, from beige to taupe, to white and gray,” Woelfel says, explaining that neutrals continue to be popular. She explains that these colors offer more versatility within the home, which is why they top the best-sellers list year after year. She also points out that they can be used to build upon with furniture and decor for the perfect living environment. The list of fan favorites also includes dark tones that add depth and drama, as well as a nature-inspired green that’s as fresh as it is classic. So whether you’re on the hunt for an exterior shade to boost your home’s curb appeal or a calming pick for the bedroom, here are Behr’s most popular paint colors.
