POPULAR SHERWIN WILLIAMS
So, when I came up with this idea I figured the best way to learn would be to call Sherwin Williams stores all over the United States and ask what are the top selling paint colors at their store.
My husband, Marty and I contacted stores in Orlando, Atlanta, Boston, St. Louis, Seattle, Phoenix, Los Angles and Tallahassee. Tallahassee is the location I physically went to and spoke with.
Now, first let me say that the Sherwin Williams employees at these locations were so friendly and helpful! I was amazed at how well they knew their products. They all would start naming paint colors from memory.
They would say, well lets see, how about accessible beige, sea salt, tradewind, in the navy, repose gray, tricorn black, alabaster and so on. You get the picture.
I was surprised when I found many colors that were the same all over America like repose gray, accessible beige, alabaster and pure white.
Here is what paint colors I found in common.
POPULAR PAINT COLORS
- Pure White SW 7005
- Alabaster SW 7008
- Sea Salt SW 6204 (Southeast & Northeast)
- Tradewind SW 6218 (Southeast)
- Repose Gray SW 7015
- Mindful Gray SW 7016
- Agreeable Gray SW 7029
- Accessible Beige SW 7036
- Passive SW 7064
- Distance SW 6243 (Southeast)
- In the Navy SW 9178
- Tricorn Black SW 6258
There are lots of other colors that are not on this list but I figured 12 was a good number to start with.
Also, as a side note, you might have noticed that Pure White is missing from the photo above. Unfortunately, they were out at the Tallahassee location.
However, if you click on any of the colors in the bullet list above, it will take to the Sherwin Williams site where you can see the color.
