Neutral Farmhouse Paint Colors


Hey there!

Choosing paint colors can be tricky business! But I think the hardest part this go-round for me was finding the time to get the paint I chose up on the walls! It’s been a busy hectic month! However, the living room is almost painted and couldn’t wait to show you the neutral farmhouse paint colors I chose!

Paint Samples

Sherwin Williams has tons of beautiful neutral paint choices and options! I bought 6 sample pots to try out: Extra White, Pure White, Alabaster, White Duck, Natural Choice, and Natural Choice cut but 25%, which shows a slightly lighter version keeping the same tone. If you’re painting over an existing color, in my case dark red, make sure to put a couple coats of a white or primer on the wall first. This way you get a true reading of your sample colors. Otherwise they may not read their true color over the top of something else.

I tried out several color combinations for the walls and trim with the samples I got. I really liked the Natural Choice for the trim and wainscoting with the walls being Pure White, but at the end of the day I chose to stay with super classic white trim and wainscoting instead.

True White

The only problem I ran into was that none of the white sample pots or color cards (I think I took 27 lol) read true white to me. When I say true white I mean a white that doesn’t read warm, having yellow or red undertones, or cool, having blue or grey undertones. I wanted a very neutral just white white.

Then after making another trip to SW I found it! In my humble opinion the only “white” of theirs that reads true white is High Reflective White. I LOVE this color! It’s beautiful! Crisp and clean and just plain ol white like I wanted!

Paint Choices

So above are the colors I chose and what I will be using each on. High Reflective White in SW Emerald paint will be used on all the trim, wainscoting, and ceilings throughout the main level. Natural Choice in SW Captivate will be used on the living room walls. And Pure White in SW Captivate will be used on all the rest of the walls throughout the house, upstairs and down. And all paint will be in a Satin finish.

I really just want all the walls to get a fresh white coat of paint on them. I look at it like a clean canvas or backdrop for everything else. The living room should be done this week and I CANNOT wait for you to see it! It’s truly amazing what paint can do! If you missed the Farmhouse Before Tour check it out HERE! Okay now I better get back to it! 😉
