Marnie’s Favorite Paint Colors for Any Home

BY: Marnie Oursler


As we continue to spend more time at home, you may be tempted to revitalize the spaces around you, so I’m sharing my favorite paint colors—one of the most simple ways to completely transform a room.
 
In building custom beach homes, my top color palettes often center around coastal hues. Here, I’ve outlined my go-to neutrals, whites, grays, “greige” and blues to help you decide the best option for your home. You really can’t go wrong with these paint colors from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. Happy painting!
