Now that you know Behr's favorite paint colors let's look more closely at each color and an example of it used in a room.
Behr Ultra Pure White
Our first color example is Ultra Pure White and it is the color I choose for our guest bedroom. It is a white color but has the softest feel to it. Some white colors blind you when you enter a room but this white is gentle on the white and was the perfect backdrop for this cheap small bedroom makeover.
I painted the walls and trim the same white Behr paint color. Talk about an easy paint job. No cutting in with two different colors. This is a great color for all your trim in your home too and it looks amazing on furniture.
Here is another shot of the guest bedroom so you can see more of this popular Behr white color. Whether you have natural light or not this color will brighten a room.
Another beautiful example is this kitchen by House on Heatherfield. If you love white cabinets then consider painting them Ultra Pure White. White cabinets brighten any cooking space and this color is a perfect option.
This is a great color for all your trim in your home too and it looks amazing on furniture. Consider using Ultra Pure White on your cabinets, trim, walls, furniture, interior, and exterior. It also looks fabulous on the front doors.
Now keep in mind that this is a white-white color so if you want a little contrast and a warmer tone then try this next color.
Behr Cameo White
Julie Blanner used Cameo White in her guest bedroom and it is the perfect light warm yellow undertone. This warm Behr paint color makes the white-white bedding stand out but still gives the room that bright and light feeling.
Cameo White is the perfect color for the interior and exterior of your home. Consider using it on walls, furniture, and cabinets.
Behr Swiss Coffee
Did you know that Swiss Coffee is the most sold Behr paint color? The Style Bunch picked a great color to paint their breezeway. The texture on their siding makes this color look a little darker than it is in an example in my popular Behr paint colors post. It is much whiter on a flat wall.
Isn't this space gorgeous!! Swiss Coffee has beautiful gray undertones and looks so pretty with white.
You can use Swiss Coffee anywhere. It looks fabulous on cabinets, walls, trim, furniture, interior, exterior, shutters, and front doors. There are so many great ways you can use this Behr white paint color.
Accent walls were made for black and Behr black is perfect. Look at this pretty room by Hickory Grove. After jazzing up this wall with trim and painting it black it transformed the whole bedroom. If you love dark colors but don't want to make the room feel small consider an accent wall.
Black pairs nicely with any neutral color scheme. Great places to use Behr black paint color is accent walls, trim, cabinets, furniture, the exterior of a house, shutters, and exterior doors.
Behr Graceful Grey
Grey is still a popular color and Behr Graceful Grey makes a cozy reading nook. We love how Leanna Ziegler Design used this light gray color and then created a design on the wall in a white-white color.
Graceful Grey is a great deal like white paint colors in that you can use it anywhere. It has cool undertones. I recommend using it on walls, cabinets, furniture, floors, exterior, shutters, and doors. It is also great as a transition paint color in halls and larger open spaces like the living room, family room, kitchen and dining room.
Behr Natural Gray
Another fabulous Behr grey paint color is natural gray. It is more of a medium undertone color and looks like a dark gray in a room that doesn't have a lot of natural light. This color is also on my popular paint colors list by Behr and Fallon at Fallon's Homestead used it in a gorgeous way on the wall going up the stairs.
This cool neutral color looks great on walls both interior and exterior. It is great for cabinets, furniture, shutters, and your front door. It is one of those perfect paint colors that match almost everything.
Behr Antique White
Probably one of the most timeless Behr paint colors is Antique White. Another soft Behr paint color in a bedroom by Simply Vintage Decor. Just like Cameo White, this is color has warm undertones but very light and gives a nice contrast with white. The color and accessories make this bedroom look dreamy.
Now let's talk about places to use Antique White colors. The best place to use it on interior and exterior walls. Because it is a light color it works just about anywhere but I particularly like it on walls.
Neutral Behr paint colors are so easy to use and they are a safe option if picking paint colors is hard for you. If a painter or contractor says you have to pick one color for your interior walls then any of these colours work except for black. Unless you want to live in a cave. LOL!
Now keep in mind that when picking white colors there are warm colors and cool colors. Depending on the look and feel you want depends on the color. If you want a warm glow in your space then use a color like Cameo. But if you do not like yellow undertones then go with a cool color.
Last, also consider the lighting in your room. If you have warm light bulbs they will add a warm tone to your painted walls, trim, and everything. If you have cool light bulbs then they will bring more true color to your paint. You can find this information on the box of the light bulbs.
Good luck with finding the right color for your home.
