I am digging the rich, moody paint colors trend and am craving this design aesthetic even more as we head into Fall! I love how the perfect paint color can warm up a room and give it a cozy vibe. Last Fall I painted our dining room a dark gray and it is still one of my favorite rooms in our house. Check out some of the best moody paint colors to try in your home this year.
Must-Try Moody Paint Colors
Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams
Mary from OH MID MOD painted one wall in her foyer Peppercorn, by Sherwin Williams, and it looks absolutely perfect with the blue tile and blue door. Dark gray is a great neutral paint color that can give a room dimension and warmth.
Fading Twilight by Benjamin Moore
Julia from ChrislovesJulia always gets paint colors right! Fading Twilight by Benjamin Moore is the perfect jewel-toned burgundy for their music room. The painted ceiling and baseboards add a fun element of surprise and drama to a room.
Jenny from Juniper Home is one of my favorite designers to follow. l love this warm paint color she used in her office bathroom called Dead Salmon by Farrow and Ball. Using this beautiful earth tone color in the bathroom really warms up the space and gives it personality.
Outerspace by Sherwin Williams
This bedroom designed by Clark + Aldine is out of this world! Ok, sorry, that was really cheesy but I couldn’t help myself! Danielle used this moody paint color to create a cozy bedroom with masculine vibes for one of her clients. The blue-green color is called Outer Space by Sherwin Williams.
Chimney by Behr
Jenni from I Spy DIY created the most luxurious bathroom using this deep blue paint color. She is another designer who I often look to for bold, paint colors in the home. Chimney by Behr is a pretty gray that works well with any design style. I love how this bathroom has a vintage vibe while still keeping a modern design.
Yellow Flash by Benjamin Moore
Yellow is one of those scary paint colors that has always intimidated me! It probably stems from when my mom and I decided to paint the kitchen in yellow and it ended up looking like the inside of a Waffle House, but Yellow Flash by Benjamin Moore is really calling my name. This dining room was featured in House Beautiful and the golden paint color on the cabinets is giving off major vibes of the autumn season.
Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore
Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite blue hues to use in a room. It is a classic navy color that can be included in any design aesthetic and anchor the room together. I used this blue in a small half bathroom and it was the perfect, moody paint color to give this small space some oomph.
Green Black by Sherwin Williams
Can Shae from Studio McGee do anything wrong? NOPE! This all black office is stunning. The paint color, called Green Black, by Sherwin Williams gives the perfect, neutral base color to design this warm and inviting office. I love the wall color with the rich, wood tones included in the room and the velvet couch.
Cavern Clay by Benjamin Moore
Hannah from Blank Slate Reno designed this master bedroom perfectly around the color Cavern Clay by Benjamin Moore! This warm, terracotta color pairs perfectly with bohemian decor. Fun Fact: Cavern Clay was also chosen as the color of the year in 2019.
Narragansett Green by Benjamin Moore
Caviar by Benjamin Moore
These rich, moody paint colors aren’t just for the interior of your house! Katie and Uriah from The Inspiring Investment gave this house a modern makeover by painting the exterior with a bold, black color. They chose Caviar by Benjamin Moore to add some drama to this mid-century modern design. Anyone else loving black exteriors right now?
