Behr Ultra Pure White

"This is a very clean white that is perfect for interior and exterior ceilings and trim," Fishburne says. "It does not have any blue, pink, or yellow undertones, so it is very clear and crisp."

Behr White Moderne

"I also like tinted whites that can be used either on trim or on entire walls. You can pair them perfectly with Ultra Pure White, too," she notes. "I like a white with a gray undertone that feels modern and updated like White Moderne."

Behr Doeskin Gray

"This is a great all-over house neutral that's warm enough to complement many wood tones, and it'll feel like a fresh and contemporary neutral for homes that need a clean canvas. It works well with any of the white shades, too," Fishburne offers.

Glidden Essentials Castle Rock

"We are seeing a return of warmer, yellow-based neutrals, and Castle Rock is a fresh take on a classic," she says. "It partners well with a few grays we've introduced recently, making for a beautiful cool-toned look."

Behr Loft Space

"Grays will not be going away. I think we'll see them being layered more with warmer neutrals and browns for a fresh take on neutrals," Fishburne says. "This is a soft, approachable gray. I like it because it doesn't have any other underlying colors in it."

Glidden Premium Medici Gray

"This is another great go-to gray that's a little darker than Loft Space, but still very easy to live with," Fishburne notes. "It can be used throughout the house and it's a great exterior color."

Behr Cracked Pepper

"I love weaving an unexpected dark color into muted palettes to keep them from getting too sweet and childlike," Fishburne notes. "The best way to describe this color is as a soft black. Dark colors can really show off beautiful trim work, too."

Behr Urban Raincoat

Fishburne admits: "For me, blues are 'whole house' colors. I believe in having a signature tone and weaving it throughout the whole house as your anchor. This is a soft grayish blue, so when paired with richer blues, it will look more blue, and when it's around grays, it'll appear grayer."

"This is a rich, deep blue," she says. "NYPD has an inky base because of its gray undertone, and, depending on where you use it, it can look sophisticated or casual."

Behr Moon Gloss

"Moon Gloss is fresh without being over-the-top. It plays well with all neutrals from cool to warm, and since it has a little blue in it, it complements other blues," Fishburne says. "I love using aqua hues like this everywhere from walls and ceilings to trims and doors. You can even use it on cabinets. It's a timeless aqua that never goes out of style."

Glidden Essentials Night Watch

"This was PPG's Color of the Year in 2019, and it's easy to see why," Fishburne admits. "This color is classic, but it still feels very modern and fresh. When paired with soft, airy colors, it becomes an anchor, and when layered with deep, rich colors, it fades into the background."

Behr Unpredictable Hue

"I like this for homeowners who like the idea of dark color but shy away from black," she explains. "It is a bit softer, but will offer the same dramatic feel as a strong black and can complement as many colors as white does. With black, though, those colors take on a totally different effect."

Glidden Essentials Safari Bisque Beige

Glidden Safari


"I love soft pinks for all over the home," Fishburne acknowledges. "There is something so soothing about a petal pink room. However, people may shy away from it because they are afraid it might look too juvenile. Super pale shades like this offer just a hint of color, making it feel more sophisticated than infantile."

Behr Dash of Curry

"There are two colors you will always find in my home: aqua and coral. Dash of Curry is the perfect coral in my eye," she says. "It has an orange undertone that keeps it from reading too pink as some corals do. I consider it to be a pick-me-up in any room."

Glidden Essentials Afternoon Martini Olive

"I like to use green to complement blues and grays. I lean toward yellow-based or acid greens that feel more fresh and modern over greens that look a little bit gray," Fishburne says. "Yellow-based greens can be a nice bridge between classic and modern, too."
