The most popular colors of 2015 | Maine Country Home

Maybe because it’s awards season, or maybe because we’re big nerds, but we’ve been looking back on 2015 to see what was popular. Last week we looked at our most popular posts of last year. That got us thinking, what were the favorite colors our customers bought last year? We certainly have our go-to colors that we like to paint with (a 50/50 mix of Napoleonic Blue and Graphite), but what about you all? Are you ready for another countdown?

We’ll show you the Annie Sloan colors today, and the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colors next week.

#5: Duck Egg Blue

This green/grey/blue is such a versatile color. It’s muted enough to be used as a neutral, and looks great with just about every color in the Annie Sloan palette. Pair with Old White for a coastal nod, or Arles for a country look.

#4: Graphite

A gorgeous soft black. To make it blacker put a layer of Dark Wax over it. This color is comfortable in modern, country, French, primitive, or just about any other style!

#3: Paris Grey

A cute pair of lamps painted in Paris Grey. Love the pop of orange!

What we like to call “stormy day grey”. Paris Grey is your perfect cool grey. Darken with Napoleonic Blue to keep the grey true.

#2: Pure White

Blue Harvest Table

A bold, crisp white, Pure White can be modern when paired with other bright colors, or country when paired with other muted or pastel colors. Use this color to lighten colors but still keep them bold.

And #1: Old White

No big surprise here, Old White has always been a crowd favorite! It’s the perfect soft white that goes with everything. Use it to lighten colors and keep them soft.
