Spring into color with these fun, vibrant and oh so pretty paint colors. Let’s kick it off with a warm light green whose name even sounds like it was made for the spring season…
1. Fernwood Green by Benjamin Moore
Fernwood Green (2145-40) – LRV: 56.76 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)
Green is the first color that comes to mind when you think of spring. Fernwood Green by Benjamin Moore is a light green that provides a sense of renewal, and it has relaxing vibes – perfect for Spring!
Fernwood Green is a slightly warm mossy green, and its yellow undertones almost make it look a little bit creamy.

2. Rainwashed by Sherwin-Williams
Rainwashed (SW 6211) – LRV: 59 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)
Rainwashed by Sherwin-Williams is another fun green paint color that’s perfect for spring. This paint color is less of a true green, and more of a greenish-blue.
I absolutely love this color for a bedroom. The soft pastel hues are so peaceful and feel like a breath of fresh air.
Rainwashed is a medium-light green and it’s softened with blue-gray undertones – stunning!
This light and airy bluish green brings a serene and natural feel to your interior spaces. Try this cool green in a bedroom or a bathroom.Sherwin-Williams
Want to add a spring paint color to your cabinets? Here’s a look at Rainwashed on cabinets in a laundry room.
I mean, if you have to do laundry, you may as well make the room you’re in feel bright and springy. Amirite?!
Pssstttt… a better way to test paint colors on your walls 👇🏻
Before we get too much further into this list of best paint colors for spring, I need to fill you in on a little known painting hack.
The hack? Peel-and-stick paint samples.
Paint colors don’t always appear accurately on digital screens, so it’s important to test out paint samples in your home.
For the easiest, no mess way to test out paint colors, check out these Peel-and-Stick Paint Samples from Samplize. Gone are the days of purchasing all of those small paint samples and painting big squares of different colors on your walls!
Sale alert! Right now you can get 2 samples for FREE, when you purchase 8 or more samples.
Plus, if this is your first time ordering from them, use can my code: JOYFULLY5OFF to get an additional $5 off your first order. And yes, you can stack this with the bundle deal going on! #booyah
Samplize is a game changer – they make the process so easy! Their large 9″ x 14.75″ vinyl peel-and-stick samples use real paint, and make it so convenient to see how a color will look in your home (without the mess).
Ok, back to the list of perfect paint colors for spring…
3. Weston Flax by Benjamin Moore
Weston Flax (HC-5) – LRV: 76.45 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)
Weston Flax by Benjamin Moore is a soft, buttery yellow, and it’s a favorite from their Historical Collection. It conjures images of breezy wheat fields, sunshine, and freshly churned butter! It’s a fitting color for Spring!
With an LRV of 76.45, this paint color is pretty light and bright (for a yellow). It would be an excellent accent color, but it could even work as a whole-room color, especially in a room with generous natural light.
A classic option for those searching for the perfect buttery yellow.Benjamin Moore
4. Whole Wheat by Sherwin-Williams
Whole Wheat (SW 6121) – LRV: 48 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)
Whole Wheat by Sherwin-Williams is a medium-dark neutral. It’s warm, relaxing and bold.
The color is inspired by nature and reminds me of natural wood tones, warm dirt underneath your barefoot toes, and of course, wheat.
It’s a paint color that captures the essence of spring.
Balance natural wood finishes with this warm and affable yellow. An ideal hue for relaxing with guests in your family or dining room.Sherwin-Williams
I love the warmth this color adds when paired with black trim like in the picture below.
5. Windmill Wings by Benjamin Moore
Windmill Wings (BM 2067-60) – LRV: 62.55 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)
Sunshine, warm weather, and blue skies are my absolute favorite things about spring. If you’re looking for an icy blue paint color that’ll instantly remind you of a bright spring sky, consider choosing Windmill Wings by Benjamin Moore.
In fact, I think they should have just called this color Spring Sky!
A crisp periwinkle that adds cheer and charm to any space.Benjamin Moore
It’s a cool light blue paint color that is softened ever so slightly with white-grayish undertones. This color would work in any room of the house, but I especially love it paired with Oxford Gray in the cozy living space below.
How To Get A Great Deal On Paint
Did you know that you can use budget friendly paint, and have it color matched to premium Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams paint colors? At Joyfully Growing Blog, we always use Glidden Premium paint from The Home Depot.
Glidden Premium rivals the quality of the top paint lines from Behr, Sherwin Williams, and Benjamin Moore.
Any paint store, or home improvement store with a paint section will be able to match colors from most major brands. This means that you can select one brand of paint, but get it mixed in any color you want!
In many cases, affordable paint like Glidden Premium can be up to 50% cheaper than the ‘big name brand’ competition. This can save you a ton of money!
Our Go-To Painting Supplies
- Paint brushes – I recommend ‘Pro Grade’ paint brushes, they’re the perfect budget friendly option. This set comes with both flat and angled brushes to get every nook and cranny. I LOVE the quality and, in my experience, they’re much more affordable from Amazon compared to in-store prices. You might be surprised how cheap this professional quality 5 Brush Set is on Amazon (it’s less than $10!).
- Paint rollers – Cover more surface area with a handy roller.
Tip: I love this one for tall walls or ceilings, it has an extendable handle.
- Paint sprayer – Paint brushes and paint rollers will get the job done, but for serious efficiency and productivity, you cannot beat this Graco Magnum Project Plus airless paint sprayer (Amazon). I personally own this paint sprayer, and have used it on tons of painting projects.
It’s an excellent quality sprayer, and powers through any painting projects in a hurry. Painting with an airless sprayer makes it easy to complete projects in much less time.
- Drop cloth – Skip the mess and grab a reusable drop cloth instead. This will come in handy for future projects. Just pop it in the washing machine after you’re done painting and it will be ready to go for the next project.
- Multi-surface painter’s tape – I always use this brand of painter’s tape, it’s great for smooth or lightly textured walls, trim, baseboards, tile, or even glass. It sticks quick and is easy to remove.
- Sanding sponges – For smoothing and prepping surfaces, you’ll need a couple of sanding sponges in different grits.
