I’ve mentioned a time or two that I work at Sherwin Williams right? Yup I’ve mentioned it a lot… honestly I need to have a whole Sherwin Williams tab on this blog! I suppose that’s what happens when you’re into home decor and you work at a paint store… work kind of goes home with you. Literally… I come home most days covered in paint!
Working at Sherwin Williams I get asked twenty times a day “What’s your most popular paint color?” or “What color do you sell the most of?” I spend many hours helping DIY guys and gals pick out colors for their homes… and so do my fellow Sherwin Williams employees! So I thought today we’d take a poll… to see which colors really are the most popular! 😉
I sent out an SOS, a Bat Signal, a cry for help… okay, okay! I sent out a text message 😉 I asked a bunch of my closest Sherwin Williams friends to answer a quick question “What are the most popular paint colors with DIY customers right now?”
These super awesome peeps work in different stores, in different states, in different jobs (I never realized how many SW people I knew!)…. and these are the colors they replied with:

Greys would be Anew Grey (sw 7030), Cityscape (sw 7067) and Mega Greige (sw 7031). Yellows are Restrained Gold (sw 6129), Blonde (sw 6128) and Jonquil (sw 6674).

Decorative Product Consultant – 4 years
It’s still Kilim Beige (sw 6106), Accessible Beige (sw 7036), Pediment (sw 7634) and Amazing Gray (sw 7044) … although if you’re looking for a little color Sea Salt (sw 6204) is great.

Neutrals are hands down the all time favs… Kilim Beige (sw 6106), Perfect Griege (sw 6073) and Dover White (sw 6385).
There you have it! Ask Sherwin Williams what paint colors are the best? Kilim Beige (sw 6106) is definitely the winner… followed shortly by Latte (sw 6108) and Sea Salt (sw 6204)! Neutrals are definitely killing it this year… but we already knew that :).
So what do you think? Are neutrals your go to paint color? What hues are on your walls?
