Hello all and welcome to a special edition paint color post.
We are officially in the sean of Spring and what a joys thing that is.
I have a particularly fond attachment to spring because I was born on the first day of it, March 20th.
I’m admittedly not a fan of the cold weather. I want nothing to do with it but living in New Jersey, it is unavoidable.
So every year I (not so) patiently wait for the warmer spring weather to arrive.
In the spirit of springtime being here I wanted to share some of my favorite spring-inspired paint colors. These colors evoke feelings of happiness, laughter, contentment, and delight making you really feel like you are in the thick of spring.
WHAT IS SPRING?
Spring is one of the four seasons. Wikipedia’s definition of it is:
Spring, also known as springtime, is one of the four temperate seasons, succeeding winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. At the spring (or vernal) equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long, with daytime length increasing and nighttime length decreasing as the season progresses until the Summer Solstice in June (Northern Hemisphere) and December (Southern Hemisphere).
Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Cultures may have local names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.Wikipedia
Spring is when the weather slowly starts to get warmer, trees begin to get buds, flowers start to bloom and the days get a little bit longer. It’s truly such a beautiful time of the year.

CAPPUCCINO 2096-50 BENJAMIN MOORE
Cappuccino by Benjamin Moore is a glorious warm creamy beige. Think about an actual cup of cappuccino with a touch of milk, that’s what this paint color is.
Cappuccino has a touch of pink in it that gives this paint color a serious springtime feel.
PALE MOON OC-108 BENJAMIN MOORE
Benjamin Moore Pale Moon is a soft, slightly buttery paint color. It’s not a super in-your-face type of a yellow. It’s more subdued and subtle but it still makes a statement. Pale Moon is a beautiful muted yellow that fits perfectly into a springtime color pallette.
SIMPLY WHITE OC-117 BENJAMIN MOORE
Simply White by Benjamin Moore is a crowd-pleaser. This white paint colors as a hint of warmth that makes it not too stark. This is a lovely white that looks beautiful with both warm a and cool color palette.
Simply White works perfectly as a spring paint color because it’s neutral and you can add color in other ways such as decor.
MUSKOKA 974 BENJAMIN MOORE
Benjamin Moore Muskoka Trail is another lovely soft neutral off-white paint color. This one fits perfectly in the characteristics of a spring paint color. It has a soft and warm appeal to it.
It has some yellow in it that gives it that warmth but there is a touch of gray that keeps it from looking too warm. It’s a true beauty.
MISTY BLUE 820 BENJAMIN MOORE
Misty Blue by Benjamin Moore is a mid-toned slightly dusty blue paint color. It’s soft but doesn’t have a touch of iciness to it. The thing that makes this blue an amazing spring-inspired paint color is the fact that it has a drop of lavender to it.
NORTHERN LIGHTS 586 BENJAMIN MOORE
Benjamin Moore Northern Lights is such a fantastic spring-inspired paint color. This one screams springtime to me.
Northern Lights is a mid-tone vibrant green with a bit of blue in it. This is such a cheerful and fresh paint color. Truly one of the more unique ones on this list.

KESTREL WHITE SW 7516 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Sherwin Williams Kestrel White is a warm neutral paint color. This is a fantastic color to use when you are looking for a like light but not quite white. Kestrel White has a bit more depth to it.
The quality that makes Kerstel White the perfect spring inspire paint color is the hint of pink running through it. It’s ever so slight, but in certain lighting, it may be seen.
PINKY BEIGE SW 0079 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Pinky Beige by Sherwin Williams is a mid-toned beige/tan paint color. There aren’t many surprises with this fantastic color, it’s name says it all, Pinky Beige. That is exactly what it is.
Some beige paint colors tend to lean more on the yellow side, but not this one. It leans towards pink.
I like this one as a springtime paint color because it is not full pink rather it’s a bit more neutral with that beautiful pink lingering in the background.
IVORIE SW 6127 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Sherwin Williams Ivoire is a light creamy yellow paint color. This is not your typical sunshine yellow color. It has a bit of an orange feel to it. It’s more on the muted side which means it’s not the most vibrant color. Don’t get me wrong it has color just a bit softer.
The warm softness of Ivorie fits in beautifully with the other spring-inspired paint colors.
SPARE WHITE SW 6203 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Spare White by Sherwin Williams is a fantastic white paint color. It’s more of a cool white that leans a bit brighter than a white like SW Alabaster. But the true reason why I like Spare White as a springtime paint color is because of the subtle green it has to it.
This lively white will add serenity to anywhere you use it.
VAGUELY MAUVE SW 6015 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Sherwin Williams Vaguely Mauve is a lighter pale purple paint color. Everything about this gorgeous color says springtime to me. The softness, its pastel appearance, and the overall color.
If you like purple but don’t want anything too punchy or in your face, I think Vaguely Mauve is worth checking out.
DRIFT OF MIST SW 9166 SHERWIN WILLIAMS
Drift of Mist by Sherwin Williams is such an incredible neutral paint color! It’s a light neutral gray that has a sprinkle of warmth in it. I find it to have the ideal amount of warm and cool tones. There is also a slight green undertone that can come out in certain lighting.
Drift of Mist is light and airy and has a fresh appeal to it, all the characteristics that a spring paint color has.

FINAL THOUGHTS – BEAUTIFUL SPRING-INSPIRED PAINT COLORS
As someone who was born on the first day of spring, I have a strong connection to all things spring, including paint colors.
Spring is full of new life, sunny skies, and cheerfulness. It’s bright, airy, and fresh. And so are all the paint colors I spoke about.
The common theme among spring paint colors is color and softness. All these colors are a gorgeous representation of what spring entails.
If you are into colors with a softer inviting feel to them, one of these paint colors may be exactly what you are looking for.
Finally don’t forget that the colors you see on the computer screen are not a 100% accurate representation of the actual paint color. The best way to see what a paint color looks like is by sampling it in your home.
There are many factors that can change how a paint color will look, including lighting, decor colors, and fixed elements.
Sampling your paint colors is the best and most accurate to see the true paint color.
