January - Top 3 Paint Colors

Home Builder with West Magnolia Charm

Here we are again,  another month down and three more paint colors I have been loving. 

These are colors that I have always loved so why not share them? 

I have the tendency to always talk about neutral paint colors because that is what everyone always asks about. I get it, neutrals are easy to decorate around. However, there are colors that aren't neutral that are very usable and versatile. 

I'm sharing two colors and one neutral today. 


Ballet White by Benjamin Moore is an amazing light neutral off-white-ish color. So it's not a clean or bright white. It has some warmth to it but it also has a bit of gray that keeps its tone not overly warm. It has more color to it which is why I say it is off-white-ish. It is a fantastic soft, natural-feeling color.  I think this is one that is quite underrated.


Sherwin Williams Sea Salt is a soft muted light green paint color. This one has true coastal, beach vibes hence the name Sea Salt. I love this color, especially for bedrooms and bathrooms, it adds such a calming feel to these spaces. If you picture a piece of very light green sea glass that's exactly what Sea Salt looks like. Such a beautiful paint color.


Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore is a well-loved paint color. This is a popular one. So Hale Navy is a dark navy blue paint color. It's not a true navy blue but it is close. I love using Hale Navy on the exterior of a home, whether is the full body or as a front door color. It also is simply stunning when used on kitchen cabinets. The reason I like this color is that it is a blue but it is not a bright or overly saturated blue. There is gray in it that keeps it soft and more neutral, making it a much more approachable color.

I used Hale Navy on a front door of a home we did white with black shutters. Was awesome.
