First Annual Remodelaholic’s Favorite Paint Color Poll

Reader Poll - Favorite Paint Colors @Remodelaholic

Hi again Remodelaholics, it’s Cyndy from The Creativity Exchange here again to talk paint colors.  Last month, I shared a color palette of some of my favorite “New Neutral” colors here.  Today, I’m so excited to announce the first annual Remodelaholic’s Favorite Paint Color Poll and to kick off the voting.

For two years now, I have done an annual favorite paint color poll on my blog and it has become really a popular  feature because we end up with a fantastic palette of paint colors that are tried and true, work in a variety of lighting situations and most importantly, colors that people love in their homes.  Each year, our final palette has become a awesome resource for people looking for the best colors that don’t just look good on a card but look amazing on a wall!

For the next three weeks (starting today), we will be encouraging readers to vote by simply sharing your favorite paint color(s) here or via any Remodelaholic social media.  All you have to do is tell us your favorite home paint color, or color that you have used in the past and loved and we’ll do the rest.  You can share multiple colors and if you want to tell us why you love it, that’s great too!

On Friday, March 6th, we will close the voting and tally up the most popular colors and I’ll create a final palette of about 15 of the colors that were mentioned by reader’s the most.  I will be back on March 13th, with the results and final palette.

If you want to look through our final “favorite’s” palette from the poll we did on The Creativity Exchange, you can see our final palette here.

We can’t wait to start hearing your favorite “go-to” colors and pull together a final palette of Remodelaholic favorites!

Ok, I’ll start the voting off today by sharing my favorite paint color in my home, which is Repose Gray from Sherwin Williams.  I love it because it looks amazing in any light and it’s a perfect light warm gray. I have it in several rooms in my home and it always looks so beautiful:

  1. We chose Magician’s Cloak by Valspar as an accent wall in our great room. We LOVE the deep magenta color. The other 3 walls are a deep rich blue, Peace Blue also Valspar. The number was 1214, our late daughter’s birthday. It seemed so appropriate to put this color on the walls of the living space where we have her portrait hanging. Everyone that is welcomed in our home say it is so peaceful and cozy. Incredible when it is such a large room. We love it!

  2. We’re in a new home, moving from Seattle, Wa to Charleston, SC.
    I’m ready to change over to some blues and grays and your palette at the start of your post is just what I’ve been looking for. Can you list all nine of the colors you show? I’d love to know the names of the blues as well as the gorgeous grays.
