The results are in from our reader favorite paint color poll and I have been so excited to share our new- 2014 “favorite’s” color palette. In case you missed it, last month I kicked off our Second Annual Reader Favorite Paint Color poll here on the blog, Facebook and Twitter and asked readers to share their favorite colors. Over the last 30 days, I have received tons of responses (thank you, thank you!!) and I have pulled together a palette of all of our favorites.
All of the images in today’s post are rooms painted in today’s palette. The color name and brand is below each image.

Just to give you a little background, I had to narrow down our favorites from all of the responses and I did it by choosing colors that were mentioned multiple times. This not only helped me narrow down the colors but it also identifies those colors that work well in a variety of a lighting situations because we all have different lighting situations in our homes. All of the colors in the palette were mentioned at least four times and some even more (Sea Salt and Comfort Gray). So we have us a great list here to work from!
Overwhelmingly, Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray and Sea Salt were (by far) the most popular colors. What is REALLY interesting is that they are almost identical colors:

However, Sea Salt and Comfort Gray are chameleon colors because in some lighting, these colors can lean more green, gray and in spaces with a lot of natural light, they can lean blue. The great news, is no matter the lighting situation or how the color leans, both colors always look amazing:

As far as the other colors in our favorite’s palette, Sherwin Williams Repose Gray and Mindful Gray came up quite a bit as well and they are two beautiful warm grays that are actually on the same paint card (Mindful Gray is one shade darker than Repose):

Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore is another color that came up frequently and several people mentioned that they recently painted their interior doors and cabinets in this color. Chelsea Gray is turning out to be an all-star color that looks beautiful anywhere:

I was surprised to see both Benjamin Moore Jamestown Blue and Fieldstone pop up again because these two colors were really popular 4-5 years ago. All of the sudden, I’m seeing a big resurgence of these two colors being used more and more. I love it because these are two all-star colors that also always look beautiful in different situations:

So many awesome colors that you guys shared and I can’t thank you enough for participating in the poll and sharing your color feedback! It’s so great to find these colors that are working well for everyone and I hope you can use this palette as you look for new colors. You can see the results from our 2013 poll here.
By the way, I will be pinning more colors/rooms from the poll over the next few weeks on my Pick a Paint Color board on Pinterest here. If you haven’t had a chance to check out that board, I have almost 500 images of rooms and paint color names.
Thanks for stopping by!
