Paint is one of my favorite steps in the design process, but it can also be one of the hardest. Picking the perfect color for your home can be a daunting task, but we are here to help! Paul and I were excited to visit our local Sherwin Williams store to try out their new Emerald Designer Edition which features 200 new paint colors!
It’s a paint and primer in one which saves time and improves coverage! Using 6 of the brand new colors from this line I created a whole house paint palette (or as Paul likes to call it – A Paul-ette) that you can use in your own home. ** Read until the end to get a very special gift from Sherwin Williams and Kadilak Homes to you! ❤️

LUNAR LITE | SW 9546
Lunar Lite is the main neutral paint color for this whole house paint palette. Just like the name, it’s very bright! This color will look great in hallways, mudrooms, and any other place that could use some brightening.
GOING GREY | SW 9554
This is a darker shade of grey featuring some warm beige undertones making it the perfect greige to use in your home! I would use Going Grey for a kitchen island, mudroom bench, fireplace trim, possibly a bedroom color if you wanted a moody vibe, or it could even act as a darker trim in a room paired with a lighter color, like Lunar Lite!
GREY HERON | SW 9566
Grey Heron is a very versatile grey paint color. If you are unsure of what color to choose for a room, this is one of those “can’t go wrong” colors. Grey Heron is a great choice for a neutral bedroom color and I’m definitely going to use this color for kitchen walls in a new project! Compared to Lunar Lite, Grey Heron is slightly darker and has more color in it.
AUTONOMOUS | SW 9557
Autonomous is light grey paint color with really pretty blue undertones. Spaces like living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms are perfect for Autonomous’s blue grey hues which are bold yet soothing.
CREATE | SW 9646
Create is a really pretty green (which is one of my favorite colors)! All shades of green were seen all over the biggest 2020 paint trends and I am so happy that Create is here because I just love it! I would use this green paint color in a bathroom if you want a serene spa feel and it also can be a great choice for bedrooms too.
MINERAL | SW 9637
Mineral is a medium tone blue and is darker than one of the previous paint colors featured, Autonomous. If you have a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, you could use Mineral as the bedroom paint color and Autonomous in the bathroom because they compliment each other nicely. Another great place in your home to use Mineral would be in the main living area.
The great thing about this whole house paint palette is that all these colors can be used alone or together. All the colors are versatile and will look great anywhere in your home. Happy painting!
