10 Paint Colors That Will Never, Ever, Ever Go Out of Style

Use these in your house and you’ll be set for life.

 

Not one to be influenced by what’s “in style”? Don’t care about the Color of the Year? As much as it can be fun to try new trends, who wants to repaint her whole house every few years? “It takes the average consumer more than 100 days from starting to think about a painting project, to completing it,” Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, tells CountryLiving.com. “The majority of that time is spent choosing the perfect color.”

Thankfully, there are a few tried-and-true, timeless hues to choose (and never get sick of). See which swatches Wadden recommends.

“However, if your design aesthetic is drawn to darker hues, deep reds, navy, and black also have timeless appeal,” Wadden explains. “Colors like Tricorn Black (SW 6258), Naval (SW 6244), and Rave Red (SW 6608) are other fan favorites.”
