A few years ago, I took a poll on the blog and on The Creativity Exchange Facebook page, asking for readers favorite paint colors. The response was overwhelming and I started to see the same paint colors continually being mentioned. So I tallied up all the votes and I pulled all the top picks together to create this palette and list below.
While many of these colors are still some of the most beautiful and popular paint colors out there today, I want to update the list and do a new poll for us as we head into 2018. At the end of this post in the comment section, I would love for you to share your favorite color(s) that you are loving now for the poll.
Many of you share the love of color and paint (like I do) and we all have discovered some great colors together thanks to your comments and suggestions. More than any other resource that I use for discovering and highlighting great colors on the blog, I am the most interested in finding out what colors you guys are using and love on your walls.
I won’t be surprised to see a few of the colors from the 2014 poll on the updated list. Dependable and timeless paint colors are truly timeless and the best colors will stand the test of time.
I am curious to see if Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black continues to be readers favorite black.
Tricorn Black has always been on of the most popular blacks out there because it’s a true black with no strong undertones.
I fully expect to see Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal on this list. In the last year or so, this deep rich color has really surged in popularity. I saw in used in so many homes when I did the Salt Lake City Parade of Homes.
I would be very surprised if Sherwin Williams Sea Salt is not at the top of the reader’s favorite list again this year. Sea Salt is an all-star color that was by far, the number one color mentioned by readers in the last poll.

I have been seeing Sherwin Williams Dovetail used a lot lately as well and I am curious to see if it makes the list. It’s two shades down on the same paint colors strip from the very popular Sherwin Williams Repose Gray and Dovetail has quickly become a popular interior door color!
Speaking of Sherwin Williams Repose Gray, there is no doubt that this color will be at the top of the list again this year because it really is a perfect gray. It’s the color I used throughout my home and recommend the most to my clients. It has the perfect balance of cool/warm undertones and looks stunning in any lighting situation.
