Looking to give your home a fresh new look this summer? Explore the latest painting trends to discover new ideas for creating an attractive home with a fresh coat of paint and get inspired for your project.

Interior Painting Trends

No matter what your personal taste may be or what your painting goals entail, there’s a painting trend out there that’s just for you. Here are some of the top interior painting trends for 2022.

Earth Tones

Muted greens and other warm earth tones are popular this summer. From lighter seafoam greens to darker forest shades, greens can surround you with a sense of nature for a calming and welcoming effect in your home. Other earth tone shades like soft browns can provide a grounding effect and create a clean and inviting space.

Bright Blues

For a brighter and bolder look in your home, opt for bright blues. Think Greek Island vibes and tropical ocean blues. These tones are eye-catching and beautiful, adding a sense of vibrance and positivity to your space. For those looking for an optimistic tone for their homes, a bright or medium blue can add a unique accent.

Cool Neutrals

For a sense of Zen in a calm and relaxing space, cool-toned neutrals are another great trend to consider. Light grays are highly complementary to many types of aesthetics and can provide a neutral background that lets your furniture and décor take the spotlight instead.

Accent Walls

Not ready to fully commit to a new color scheme throughout your entire home? Accent walls are another trend this summer that can provide you with a smaller-scale change inside your home. Think one full wall in a bedroom to create a dramatic effect or adding wainscoting so that you can choose two colors, one above and one below.

Whether you’re looking for bright and bold or warm and understated, there’s a painting trend that will suit your personal aesthetic. This summer 2022, we’re also seeing more people opting for a mural wall, in which the wall is painted with various patterns or scenery. This modern spin on traditional wallpaper offers complete versatility to suit your artistic vision.Exterior Painting Trends

If you’re looking for exterior painting trends for your home this summer, you have plenty of great options to consider as well. Some of the same trends we saw in the interior trends are relevant for your home’s exterior as well. These include:

  • Warm, earth tones
  • Muted greens
  • Cool neutrals
  • All-black exteriors
  • Classic navy

If you’re planning a painting project that encompasses both your interior and exterior, it’s best to add some contrast. You may not want to choose muted greens for both the interior and exterior of your home, just as you may not want the same earth tones inside and out. Choosing contrasting colors, maybe warm on the inside and cool on the outside, or at least complementary colors, can help give your home more visual interest as you welcome friends and family inside.

Average Star Rating

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.
