Among the top questions we get from our clients, one of the most common is: “What color are other people using in their homes?” In this brief article, Affinity Painting is going to touch on 5 of the most popular colors for the interior and exterior painting of your Greensboro Home.

Interior Paint Colors-

  1. Mindful Gray SW 7016 – A beautiful, rich grey tone. Mindful Gray can be used in any room of the house as it makes for a fantastic neutral tone for the common areas.
  2. Sea Salt SW 6204 – Subtle and inviting. Sea Salt is a great color for bathrooms and bedrooms. It can also be used as an accent color in a tray ceiling.
  3. Balanced Beige SW 7037 – This is not quite the same beige from the early 2000’s. This color has done away with the peach undertones, transitioning to a much warmer, seller-friendly color that can be used in any room of your Greensboro home.
  4. Dovetail SW 7018 – Bold and contrasting. This graphite gray is great for using in powder rooms and accent walls in your den. It’s a deep grey that will make your trim molding really stand out.
  5. Lazy Gray SW 6254 – Gray, but also a little blue. For those of us that like cooler gray tones, Lazy Gray is for you. Just a touch of blue makes this a great option in your sun room or home office.

Exterior Paint Colors-

  1. Summit Gray SW 7669 – The safe choice. When it comes to painting the outside of your home, you can go one of two directions, safe or bold. Summit Gray is a safe choice. It pairs nicely with virtually any accent color and looks great against white vinyl trim.
  2. Rare Gray SW 6199 – Another great safe choice. This gray has subtle undertones of green, making it a great color if you are looking to accent with darker greens or black.
  3. Tricorn Black SW 6258 – This color is what we use more often than not on our shutters and doors. It is toned down from jet black just a bit to offer a more passive approach to using black as an accent.
  4. Khaki Shade SW 7533 – Khaki Shade is perfect for your stucco Greensboro homes. It pairs perfectly with maroon accents or navy front doors. A perfect way for your home to stand out in your Greensboro community.
  5. Poolhouse SW 7603 – Poolhouse is a great blue color for the exterior of your Greensboro home. It has just the right amount of blue to pair with your red front door or bold red shutters.
