10 Bold Paint Colors That Will Transform Your Home (No White Allowed!)

I have a strong belief that everyone should have at least one room in their house that’s not white. While neutrals are timeless and classic, incorporating bold colors can bring the perfect pop to add character and interest to your home.

In this post, inspired by our latest YouTube video, I’ll take you through ten stunning paint colors that will convince you to step out of the white zone and embrace something bold and beautiful.

1. Blooming Ivy Lane’s Moody Blue Office

Our first color is a gorgeous moody blue inspired by Stephanie of Blooming Ivy Lane’s office. This unique shade isn’t available on the market, but it was a color match to the moody blue Ilve range in her kitchen. The color is used in the office and the butler’s pantry, perfectly sandwiching the kitchen and creating a cohesive thread in the design.

In the video I popped in the color code to this blue but I also used Sherwin Williams’ color match tool to find a similar color. The closest matches are Sherwin Williams Foggy Day and Rain.

Pro Tip: Have an item in your home that you love the color of? Take it to the paint store and ask them to color match it! You're not limited to the premade colors.

In the video mom mentioned that she wants to follow suit with Stephanie by color matching the blue washer and dryer set in our client’s laundry room. Drywall is going up in this home so it’ll be a minute before we find out how this turns out but I used AI to create the color drench look in the laundry room. What do you think?

10. Sherwin Williams Sleepy Blue for a Soft Touch

In the Tulip House by Clover Lane Properties, you’ll find Sherwin Williams Sleepy Blue used as the trim. This soft, muted blue has a calming effect that makes it ideal for any room. It pairs beautifully with both neutral tones and is very popular in the “grand millennial” design style, but we can also imagine it being used in coastal and many other styles as well.

Paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a significant impact in your home. Whether you’re a seasoned DIYer or new to home design, these bold colors can transform your space into something extraordinary. Don’t be afraid to take the plunge and try something new.

Remember: A simple paint job can transform an entire space. Happy painting!
