Navajo White

Like the bedroom, your living room decor is constantly changing with the seasons. This navajo white paint color provides the perfect blank canvas for all your holiday decorations—from Easter and Independance Day to Halloween and Christmas—and it won't clash with your furniture. If you happen to have some left over you can use it as exterior paint, too. Plus, it's eco-friendly.

Yellow Taffy

Give your kitchen a bright makeover with a yellow paint and primer that's prepared to withstand any accidental splatters (and it resists fading, peeling, and staining). We suggest pairing this shade with light-color cabinets to make the space feel more open, especially if the kitchen is on the smaller side. Save the extra paint and use it for an easy touch-up if needed.
