Pahlisch’s Favorite Accent Paint Colors

One of the beautiful parts of homeownership is having options. From personalizing your space with a dramatic accent wall to selecting a creamy neutral for a sunny nook, the right paint colors can really up the cozy factor in your favorite room. However, it can be hard to know if you’re choosing the right shade until you see it on the whole wall. You’ll fall in love with these popular paint colors we trust for our own model homes inspired by expertly chosen annual Color Forecasts from Sherwin Williams

Earth Tones and Organic Hues for 2022

Today’s trending home interiors feature modern, organic hues. Neutrals are anything but ordinary with the right contrasting color or splash of textures from baskets, cable-knit throws, or woven baskets. Neutrals have a whole world of warmth and coolness that are easily overlooked, making them a favorite of designers to show off. These are the most popular paint colors used in Pahlisch Homes.

Popular Accent Paint Colors Used in Pahlisch Homes

Tricorn Black

Looking for a stark but classic contrast to offset an accent wall? In that case, we recommend Tricorn Black (SW 6258). With the rise in black or navy accent walls to indicate depth, this selection is bold in all the right ways. This color is perfect for designer wall features, cabinets, or nooks of the house where you want some boldness to help break up a color palette. Not only is this a popular paint color for Pahlisch, but it’s also been featured in Sherwin Williams’s Trendsetter, and Top 50 Colors Collections, as well as Spring 2022 Top Colors lists for West Elm and Rejuvenation. Explore the possibilities of Tricorn Black with Sherwin Williams’s Color Snap Visualizer.

Dorian Gray

The picture of perfection for gray and greige tones, Dorian Gray (SW7017), adds dimension and warmth to interior walls. Easily cooled by monochromatic, natural tones or warmed up with rustic tones, this color really can do it all. Imagine this tone on the board and batten in a bathroom or on an entryway wall. This gray is a hue our designers trust to deliver an even, cool foundation. See the magic of this popular paint color yourself with the Dorian Gray Colorsnap Visualizer by Sherwin Williams.

Colonnade Gray

If monochromatic is more your style, consider Colonnade Gray. This color is the sweet spot for a warmer gray mid-tone to offset popular, primary lighter grays. In addition, this timeless wall can pull the gold and brown hues from natural light for added warmth. Picture this on a portrait wall, the accent wall of a staircase, or in a living room. Complementary colors that play well with Colonnade Gray include whites and pewters. Try out Colonnade Gray on the Sherwin Williams Colorsnap Visualizer.
