Painting your entryway for just one season? We understand a paint project can feel like a huge commitment, but painting even one statement wall can add a whole new element to your home—especially when it comes to the entrance. Keep reading for 11 paint colors we’re crushing on for the right now, with plenty of time to change them out before a new season, and new ideas, arrive.
This particular shade takes us to the colors of the most serene pool or clear, teal-tinted ocean. Adding color to a smaller room in your home will still make a visual impact—and make accessorizing the space all the more fun.
This deep, almost-black charcoal hue is actually Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron. Opt to go darker—not lighter—this summer for a real statement. Balance the darker shade with natural light, metallic accents, and light floors.
While we are #TeamGray walls, we still can’t get enough of clean, white walls either. Do something crazy and ditch your statement wall or crazy-colored entryway for a refreshingly minimalist slate.
You can’t go wrong with navy in the summer, especially when paired with white. This staircase entrance nails the classic, slightly nautical feel with a touch of bohemian vibes.
While these walls are actually made of cement, with wood added on the right wall (and throughout the house!), replicating the gray hue is as easy way to get a similar feel. If you’re looking for a major project, take on adding wood panels to your entryway.
shades of gray
Gray is big for 2016 (see exhibit A and B). We love this light, neutral shade for a minimalist home.
This creamy beige hue is a great trial run for ditching your otherwise all-white walls. It creates a slightly warmer vibe without venturing out of neutral territory.
Paint your entryway this minty turquoise and prepare to feel like you’re living in a beachside cottage. Go brighter, or more of a pale mint, for a more modern statement, or stick with the turquoise for major summer vibes.
Have white walls and want to officially escape your strictly neutral palette for the season? Try out a pale peach, which is just one step further than the creamy beige you saw before.
Make a statement with a bright baby blue. Bring neutrals and other pastels into the space to keep your palette Pantone-inspired.
This rich gray has a noticeable brown undertone, which is welcome in this masculine entryway.
