Choosing Paint Colors for a Colonial Revival Home

Colonial Revival Color: 5 Tips

Neutral, calming colors that include soft greys, off-whites, and tans are the basis of a sophisticated palette that complements the classical elegance of Colonial Revival homes and interiors.

  • Think of the house as a whole, and chose colors that flow from room to room.
  • Good paint is worth the investment. Cheap paints fade and look dull quickly.
  • The finish is key. Jenny favors soft matte and eggshell finishes on the walls, with satin or semi-gloss for the woodwork, because higher sheen gives molding depth to frame the walls. (Higher gloss is also easier to wipe clean.)
  • Grays are tricky and change with the light and adjacent colors. Use a crisp white to tone down and neutralize gray; a softer off-white with yellow or pink undertones will warm gray.
  • Be careful with taupe, essentially a warm gray-beige. Jenny likes to use taupe with gold or green rather than with red or pink, to keep the palette harmonious
