Today I am sharing all of the cottage inspired paint colors we used in our home!
The cottage inspired paint colors in our home have changed a lot over the years. In fact, they have changed since I wrote this post almost two years ago now! Today I’ll be sharing an update on all the colors we have throughout our home, and I hope it’s a help to you!
Below is the graphic that I made when I first wrote this blog post. Most of the colors have stayed the same, with a few exceptions.
Here are the colors, listed 1-8 as you see them above.
- Cool Metalwork Grey by Glidden
- Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore
- Halo by Benjamin Moore
- Compelling by True Value Hardware
- Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore
- Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore
- Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore
- Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams
Cottage Style Paint Colors
Let’s start with Number 1 – Cool Metalwork Grey by Glidden.
We used this beautiful, blue gray color in the nursery and had it lightened by 50%. You can see more of the nursery, here!
Number 2 – Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore
This is the color we used to have in our kitchen.
In our home, Gray Owl definitely had some blue undertones, as you can see in the photo above. We have since changed the color to Halo by Benjamin Moore, the same color that is in our bedroom (number 3).
Now that there is an AirStone accent wall in our kitchen, there really isn’t a lot of wall space to see the color well. I share more about the color below, but I love it so much that it’s now in my living room, as well!
Number 3 – Halo by Benjamin Moore
This is the color we used in our bedroom space, and I think it’s one of my absolute favorites. It is the perfect, warm “greige” – the perfect blend of gray and beige. I just love this color.
Number 4 – Compelling by True Value Hardware
This is the color we used to have on our front door. If you have been following along lately, you know that I recently changed the color to Cool Metalwork Grey by Glidden when we refinished the porch.
Truth be told, I’m still unsure about the change. If I’m being honest, it will probably be changing again soon! I’ll keep you posted on the color I choose!
I am also always asked about our siding color, but unfortunately our home was painted by the previous owners before we moved in. One day I plan to color match it, though! They really did pick such a beautiful gray!
Number 5 – Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore
We used this color in our downstairs bathroom above the bead board. I haven’t shown much of this space, simply because I’m not 100% in love with it. I’d like to give it a small makeover soon, so stay tuned! 🙂
Number 6 – Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore
This is the color I used on the interior of our front door. I also used the color to paint this thrifted dresser right off of our kitchen.
It’s a beautiful, dark, moody gray that has a bit of a blue undertone in my opinion.
Number 7 – Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore
Now I have to be honest with you guys. This color you see in my dining room was a color…that I made.
Yup. I was trying to save money, so I used some paint that we already had on hand and played around with it until I got the color I wanted. BUT I will say that after comparing it to so many colors, Edgecomb Gray is a similar match!
I’m asked about the dining room so often, so if you’re looking for a warm beige with subtle gray undertones, this is a great option.
Number 8 – Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams
This is the color we used to have in our living room. Last year I repainted the room using….you guessed it. Halo by Benjamin Moore!
A few more colors to note…
Number 9 – Kingsport Gray by Benjamin Moore
This is the color we painted the corner hutch in our dining room. You can read all about it’s transformation, here! This is also the color that I used on the closet door in our entryway!
A Word About Whites…
Another question I get a lot is which white I use throughout my home. I’m sorry if this disappoints, but I have never chosen a white paint color. When we first moved in, I painted all the baseboards a basic white right off the shelf at our local True Value Hardware.
Since white can have sooo many different undertones, I have continued to use that basic “off-the-shelf” white all these years. For my trim, moulding, baseboards…you’ll even find it in my entryway and recently refinished sunroom.
So there you have it! I’m so happy I’ve finally had the chance to update these cottage inspired paint colors in our home. What are your favorite cottage paint colors? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
