Interior Paint Trends

One of the most popular interior paint trends in Charlotte is to go with a light and airy color palette. Soft pastels, such as light blues (Sherwin-Williams Aleutian, SW 6241), pinks (Sherwin-Williams Roycroft Adobe, SW 0040), and yellows (Sherwin-Williams Sunny Veranda, SW 9017) can give your home a bright and cheerful feel. If you’re looking for something a bit bolder, consider adding an accent wall in a bright color such as green (Sherwin-Williams Oakmoss, SW 6180), red (Sherwin-Williams Stop, SW 6869) or orange (Sherwin-Williams Obstinate Orange, SW 6884). Natalie Papier (@home_ec_op), a local Charlotte Designer, has endless examples of adding pops of color on their Instagram page here.

Airy and welcoming

Parker and Renee in Southend had Craftwork paint their kitchen accent wall in Sherwin-Williams Oakmoss (SW 6180). The green color feels fresh and inviting, the perfect combination for hosting guests.

Minimal and tranquil

Craftwork painted Gretchen’s second bedroom in Plaza Midwood Sherwin-Williams Tradewind (SW 6218), which gives a calming effect to this office. The lighter shade makes the room feel larger and we love the way the sun reflects off of the walls.

Posh southern

Craftwork painted an entryway in Sherwin-Williams Pinky Beige and Sherwin-Williams Redend Point.

Sam and Steve in Oakhurst chose a two-toned wall for their entryway, also painted by Craftwork. We think the Sherwin-Williams Pinky Beige (SW 0079) and Sherwin-Williams Redend Point (SW 9081) make the room feel lively and fashionable.

Exterior Paint Trends

Many homes in Charlotte use a neutral color palette for their exterior paint scheme. This can help to create a timeless look that won’t go out of style. Popular colors for exterior painting include shades of gray, beige, and white. If you’re looking to add a bit of color, consider adding a pop of color with a bright door (like this brick home with an orange accent door in Eastover) or shutters.
