Our Color Search tool has been used over a million times to find the perfect shade and color combos! In addition to identifying paint colors used in images across Apartment Therapy, you can start from scratch to do your own color research by selecting your favorite shades from the palette to find all the images from our library that match. We partnered with Sherwin-Williams to gather data from the past three months of color searches to find out what your favorite color combos are.
First Place: Mid Gray & Dark Gray
Varying shades of gray are still in style! Warmer than white yet still a very versatile neutral, we’re not surprised that the gray on gray trend is still going strong. Gray also brings a serene elegance to just about any space. Although it can sometimes be hard to decide which shade of gray will suit your space depending on size and lighting, the color search tool can help you get started. Select a few shades of gray from the color palette at the top of the tool and you’ll be able to see all the images from our library that match. And with our recent Color Search relaunch, the tool now allows you to save an image and its colors for later!
Second Place: Sky Blue & Mint Green
This combo, reminiscent of mint sherbet, is having a total revival. Epically popular in the 50s, the sky blue & mint green combo has a nostalgic feel even when used in a modern space. As you can see in this example, the color search tool is also useful for finding inspiration for bright accents, such as the colorful books from Danielle and Patrick’s Warm Modern Home pictured in the search results below. The Color Search page is also now wider and cleaner to make more room for your beautiful minty search results.
Third Place: Pale Yellow & Goldenrod
If the dog days of summer were a color combo, this would be it. The #3 color combo selected in Color Search is also one of our favorites. While either shade of yellow could stand on its own, the combination adds a subtle richness and depth. There are now even more sunny photos to search through, as we've recently expanded the Color Search pool of images to make it easier for you to find your dream color inspiration.
