Hey Friends! Paint colors are always a topic of interest and finding the perfect shade for your home can be a daunting task. It’s something that you have to look at every day and although you could easily change things up, that can get costly. Don’t worry! These popular farmhouse colors for 2021 are all safe bets to give your home a fresh look far into the coming years.
Whether you are hiring a professional or taking on the DIY challenge yourself, it’s always important to choose a paint that is long-lasting, durable, easy to clean and goes on in minimal time. Semi-gloss paints are usually the go-to for high traffic areas or for those who have pets and kids. This finish stands up to stains and is usually easiest to clean. To cut the project time in half, choose a paint that is a primer and paint in one. This eliminates the time it takes to finish the project by covering up old paint with just one or two coats. Leading brands can take up to four coats! Crazy right?!
Okay, so now that you’ve got the down-low on what type of paint to choose…you might be wondering “what color is the right fit for me?” We’ve broken down each color and why it’s a great shade + paint to take you from 2021 and beyond! It’s obviously a personal preference, but you can’t go wrong with any of the colors listed below:
This is a great colorful color from Sherwin Williams! It creates a pop of noticeable beauty in any space you choose to use it. What is so great about this color is that the decor around it and the amount of natural light in the room can really transform the look of this color. It shifts between a muted blue-gray to a pale green-blue, and sometimes even a light gray. This color truly takes on many forms and is great for any room in the house. This color is especially perfect for those going for a coastal farmhouse look!
We can all agree that agreeable gray is a staple farmhouse color! If you are looking to warm up your space while still brightening it, this is the color for you.

Now that you’ve got your color options, it’s time to go into the store and get samples, samples, samples!! Did you know you can take as many paint swatches as you want and don’t (I REPEAT) do not pick your color without testing it on the wall first! It’s nice to add a big block of swatches to your wall before painting to really know that you are making the right decision. Let the color swatches play with the light for a couple days so you know exactly what each color will look like during every hour of the day!
