Best Farmhouse Paint Colors

The easiest way to update or change your home decor is by changing paint color. If you’re looking for the best farmhouse paint colors, I’ve selected several great colors that are listed below. I’ve also included some farmhouse decor ideas at the bottom of the article. 

What we consider to be “farmhouse style” today is a modern look on a timeless classic. Farmhouse colors are soft, muted colors with a mix of textures and patterns. You’ll find that farmhouse colors are usually a combination of whites, creams, beige, and pale blues and greens, gravitating more towards cool shades.

Don't Get Frustrated Choosing Paint Colors

As a former paint dept. manager, I’ve created a guide to help you choose the perfect paint color, every time!

Farmhouse Paint Colors

Classic Gray- Benjamin Moore 

This is a very popular neutral paint color. With an LRV of 75, Classic Gray should be considered an off-white. It’ll lighten up a room while still giving enough color.  

Coventry Gray- Benjamin Moore

Coventry Gray has a lot of depth and is very versatile. It tends to lean a bit towards the blue/green side but not enough to take away from the gray. It works best in spaces with a mix of natural and artificial lighting.  LRV: 48

Sea Salt- Sherwin William

Coventry Gray has a lot of depth and is very versatile. It tends to lean a bit towards the blue/green side but not enough to take away from the gray. It works best in spaces with a mix of natural and artificial lighting.  LRV: 63

Wedgewood Gray- Benjamin Moore

Wedgewood Gray is part of Benjamin Moore’s historical collection. It’s a nice, deep blue, with gray undertones. It stays pretty true to its color in natural and artificial lighting making it very versatile. LRV: 50

Palladian Blue- Benjamin Moore

Palladian Blue is a “mystical” color. Sometimes it looks blue, and other times it looks like seafoam green. This is very similar to Sherwin Williams Sea Salt, but Palladian blue is slightly darker. LRV: 61

Hale Navy- Benjmain Moore

I absolutely LOVE Hale Navy. It works well for furniture, cabinets, and especially as an accent wall. If you pair it with a nice white, it ties everything together quite well.  LRV: 6.3

Amherst Gray- Benjamin Moore

Amherst Gray is one step lighter than Kendall Charcoal. Depending on the lighting, this color can really show it’s green undertones. It’s a classic color that would also work well for furniture, accent walls, and especially as an exterior color. LRV: 17
