My Go-To Paint Colors

My name is Jerilyn Horn and I have worked with Sherwin William's paint colors since I was in interior design school and love their color selection and that they are always on trend in the industry. I'd like to share with you some of my most favorite paint colors below! I've used several of these colors in my personal home and for most of my design projects.

For a helpful tool, check out to order large real painted samples that can stick to your wall. These are so much more helpful than looking off of the standard small paint chips.

Favorite Whites

I like to suggest Pure White (7005) for white built-ins or trim especially if the wall color is very light. I often suggest Snowbound (7004) if looking for a warmer or softer white and Alabaster (7008) for a true creamy white (shown in the photo below). Alabaster can also be beautiful painted on cabinetry.

Favorite Neutrals

I like to suggest these colors for anyone looking for a simple neutral to go throughout the majority of the home. In order to make the space more timeless, I recommend not selecting colors that are too tan or too gray. These lighter neutral colors are great in kitchens, baths, laundry rooms and hallways. Egret White (7570) is shown in the bath photo below.

Favorite Darks

These are some of my favorite colors for those dark and moody rooms! They really add some drama to areas such as bedrooms, offices and dining rooms. Urbane Bronze (7048) and Black Fox (7020) are more blackish-browns while Iron Ore (7069) is more of a soft black and Tricorn Black (6258) is a true dark black. (Iron Ore shown on the cabinets in the photo below.)

Hints of Color

For a hint of color, I've used Sea Salt (6204) and Rainwashed (6211) in kitchens, bathrooms or laundry rooms. This photo is showing Sea Salt on the cabinets. Cast Iron (6202) is a beautiful grayish-green that I'm actually having done on the base cabinets in my own kitchen. Jasper (6216) is a beautiful moody emerald green that is almost black. We used it in our showroom with a fun botanical wallpaper!
