We're excited to introduce our top picks for paint colors for you to include when you build your new custom home! The past 18 months have made us realize that what's important is closer than we thought: our homes. Our homesare the backdrop to our lives and it's important to cherish what we experience in them daily. We have scoured the internet for the newest and trendiest interior and exterior paint colors to choose from. Let's dust off those paint brushes and dip right in to see what's trending.


Kitchens are no doubt the heart of our homes. Whether you want a more neutral kitchen or a kitchen with a pop of color, we have color options for you!

A booming trend that has developed over the last year is painting your lower set of kitchen cabinets and/or island a different color than the top ones. This adds color without it being overwhelming, especially in open layouts.

If you want to try this trend, then a great color to consider is Moody Blue by Sherwin-Williams. This color can almost shift between blue and green depending on the light. It is a darker color, but adds a beautiful, mysterious look to your kitchen.

If you want a more neutral colored kitchen cabinet, then a great color to use is Repose Gray by Sherwin-Williams. This color is described as a gentle mid-gray beige. This would be a great choice for you if you are searching for a timeless color that will last as trends change.


The newest trend for any home has been the modern farmhouse designed in simple black and white. We are seeing a lot of white walls, black doors, and light wood floors. This trend is classic and beautiful, and gives you a lot of leeway to add décor and furniture in nearly any color scheme.

One of our favorite black paints is Black Magic by Sherwin-Williams. This black has some gray features in it but looks beautiful on any surface. A great interior white color to contrast with this black paint is White Snow by Sherwin-Williams. Together, these beautiful colors give you a great canvas to decorate your home.


The first thing people see when they visit your house is your exterior - that's why curb appeal is so important! Your exterior paint color(s) should be chosen wisely and be inviting to your guests. You can carry the interior options that we gave you to the exterior, or you can be a little adventurous and choose a color that will wow everyone.

The Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year, Urban Bronze, is a beautiful and bold color to choose. This color breathes down-to-earth tranquility and is the perfect color for your home's exterior. It's also an ideal color for doors and accents if you want a pop, but not a full-on bold statement.

No matter what colors you choose for your home's interior or exterior, we recommend Sherwin-Williams as our paint of choice!
