2023 Fall Interior Paint Trends

Add comfort to your home this fall with this season’s color trends

At East Valley Painters, we offer residential painting services, including interior painting. It is hard to believe that fall is almost upon us. But you can never be too prepared for what the new season may bring when it comes to color trends. Yes, it seems to be the same shades every year. But 2023 brings some new and unique shades to the same old colors to this year’s fall.

New Colors To Enjoy For Fall 2023

Top experts recommend sticking with bold browns, splashy reds, and lively greens this season.


When it comes to browns, soft neutrals are always safe, but this year take it up a notch and go with warmer browns. Rich browns bring warmth and comfort, perfect for the holidays. Our favorite happens to be Sherwin Williams’ 2023 Color of the Year, Redend Point. It is an inviting rich rosy brown with pink undertones.


This fall, go for more muted and darker reds instead of bright and energetic reds. Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year is Viva Magenta. It is a very active and expressive red so it can be a little much. We like a more subtle shade of blackberry like Sherwin Williams’ Carnelian. It is a saturated deep violet that is almost brown, an uplifting and warm shade.


Green hues are always popular this time of year. The color goes great with neutrals and tropical shades, so it is a color that is ideal for year-round leaving a calming and serene effect. Our favorite this year is Sherwin William’s Courtyard. It is a darker green that is perfect for an accent wall.

How To Add The Colors To Your Home’s Interior

Colors can impact energy levels and mood, so always be mindful when choosing the colors you are painting the walls in your home. Luckily, fall colors promote mostly comfort and cozy feelings, when go well in all rooms in the home including kitchens and bathrooms.

To complement beige and neutral colors, use bright turquoise or greens and other vibrant colors such as a pop of purple next to tan walls. For example, using fall flowers with bright green ferns deep oranges, and pretty purple flowers in rooms with beige walls this fall would do the trick.

Also, if you are going to use subtle colors on the walls, then decorate with bold accents of colors. Or if you are going to use bold colors on accent walls, decorate with more subtle décor. Too many vibrant colors in a room take away from the calm and coziness of fall.

Prepping Your Business For a Paint Job

Tips and Tricks to get your business ready for a fresh paint job.

When it comes to your business making a first impression, appearance is everything. And it starts with your business’ paint job. If it is time to freshen up the paint on the interior walls of your business, we’ve put together a few things for you to keep in mind. In hopes of making the task less daunting and much more rewarding.

First Things First

Before you dig into any action physical labor, there are a few technical details to get squared away first.

Create a List

The best way to be prepared and organized for any project is to start with a list. A list that includes all the painting work that needs to be done and which areas you want to focus on most. Include notes like what you did or didn’t like about the previous paint job and how much you can spend on the project.

Look for Estimates

When you start shopping around for a professional painter, make sure to always get an estimate. At East Valley Painters, we always provide free estimates. After settling on the perfect company for the job, get on the schedule, so you are able to find the time that is right for both parties.

Put Together Your Color Palette

Many professional painting companies provide consulting services to help clients choose the right colors and type of paint for each project, be it residential or commercial. During the planning process, you might want to make a reference list. This list might include all of the walls and areas that need to be painted.

Time to Work

Once you have completed some needed office work, it is time to put in some physical labor before the painters make their way in.

Get Repairs Done Before Painters Come

If any areas of paint have failed beyond regular cleaning, scrapping, and hand sanding, ask the painter if any work must be done beforehand. In specific situations, such as extensive structural damage or rotten complex decorative fascia boards, hiring third-party contractors may be necessary to have proper repairs done. Most painting companies will have a list of references for you.

Discuss Health and Safety Issues

All professional painting companies have strict safety guidelines and procedures. The company representative will gladly provide details about licenses, insurance policies, warranties, training programs, and painting products. Most painting projects will require buildings to be cleared during painting hours. It will not be cohesive for your employees or the painters to share space during the process. This is why planning and prepping ahead of time is crucial

Ensure Interior and Exterior are Ready

Preparing your surroundings for exterior painting will speed up the entire project. A few things you can do before professional painters arrive on-site include trimming the back landscaping. Next, ensure that water fixtures are in good working condition if any power washing is required. Also, check exterior electrical power outlets, which may be needed for power tools, and designate a particular area where the painters can leave their tools and materials.

Although painters usually remove all the furniture and equipment in the painting area, you should take care of small and fragile items, such as electronic devices, pictures, and glassware, to prevent any damage. Additionally, make sure that all windows can be opened easily. Make sure there’s a clear and accessible path to the area and walls for you and the painters. It’s also always a brilliant idea to cover up any items in the nearby area as a precaution.

Top 2023 Interior Paint Color Trends

Color specialists and leading industry experts picked the top colors for your home’s interior in 2023.

From your basic neutrals to various shades of greens and even bright shades of berries, 2023 is the year to explore different paint options for the interior of your home.

We will cover some of the top paint brand’s colors of the year for the new year, along with some of the most anticipated paint colors for 2023. So, if you are looking to transform the walls inside your home, this upcoming year just might be the ideal time to do so.

Dulux’s Color of the Year & Various Shades of Greens

We mentioned in last month’s blog that 2023 is all about shades of green. Using green paint colors is a way of bringing nature into your home. From earthy forest greens to golden sage greens, there is a shade for every room in your home.

The UK’s leading paint brand, Dulux, is taking the color green to the next level in 2023. Their color, Wild Wonder, has been named the company’s Color of the Year. The shade is a yellowish green, a positive color that we like to classify as a golden sage green.

Some other popular greens to keep your eye on in the new year include Farrow & Ball’s Whirlybird and Beverly. Beverly is a forest green and one of the brand’s most iconic and beloved colors. Whirlybird is described as an “energizing pale green,” which pairs well on kitchen and bathroom walls.

Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year & Shades of Berries

Green isn’t the only color looking to get attention in the new year. Get used to seeing shades of berries around homes in 2023.

The popular brand, Benjamin Moore, named Raspberry Blush as its 2023 Color of the year. Just as the name implies, the shade is a bright electric coral color that is expressive and powerful. This is one of many deep and saturated berry colors that is looking to take 2023 by storm.

If you are looking to add some color to the rooms in your home, think about adding an optimistic color by painting an accent wall a bright shade of orange or pink.

Some other trendy berry colors to consider include Behr’s King Salmon. This shade is not as dramatic as some of the others, but is more of a soft, bright peach. If you are looking for something more dark, Albany’s Spice Boat is a rich reddish maroon shade.

Behr’s Color of the Year & Neutral Shades

Of course, neutral shades seem to be the one group of colors that you can always rely on using, year after year.

Behr’s Blank Canvas is the brand’s top selling color and is also their 2023 color of the year. The warm white shade promotes a calming feeling and restores balance. But there are plenty of other neutral shades to choose from if you are looking for something on the darker side.

For example, Graham & Browns’ 2023 Color of the Year is their color, Alizann. This is more of a deep auburn brown. When it comes to neutrals, you can never go wrong with choosing any shade from a light white or gray to a dark beige or brown. It could possibly be the one paint trend that may never go out of style.

Brighten Up Dark Areas Of Your Home With The Right Paint

Some areas of your home receive more light than others, leaving some areas, like the hallway and staircase, to appear very dark. Choosing the right paint color paired with the right lights can help brighten those dark spots!

Light Gray

Light grays with soft purple undertones can work wonders for your hallway. The key is to make sure you are pairing it with the right lighting such as high beamed recessed lights. When dealing with light gray shades, adequate lighting is key.

Creamy Beige

There are so many different variations of beiges that you can always find the perfect one! The best way to pick is to use samples. This way you can see how the shade will look in your hallway or staircase with the lighting you already have. Of course, you can always update your lighting, but if you are looking just to update the paint, this is the best option.

Sage Green

You will want to go for a pale sage green, with blue and green undertones. This color is great if you are going to be decorating the walls with wall art or photos. Not only is the shade inviting, but it can also really make a difference in a hallway with lights.

Pale Blue

Not only does pale blue work in hallways and staircases, it also works in bathrooms that receive little natural light. Again, you will need to make sure it is a lighter shade of blue, but it works really well in areas that tend to be dark. And again, pair it with the right lighting and it pops even more!

Helpful Tip: When choosing a paint color for a dark area of your home, pay attention to the LRV of the paint. This number represents how much light the paint color reflects or absorbs.

Trend Alert: Concrete Staining

Summertime is meant to be spent outdoors, which means now might be the time to update the front or back yard of your home. There are many options for remodeling your yard, but one of the easiest ways to make the biggest impact is concrete staining.

Concrete staining is popular for residential and commercial buildings. Paint sits on top of the concrete, but stain absorbs into the surface, giving a unique look. Plus, it is fade resistant.

The Benefits Of Concrete Staining

There are several benefits to stepping outside of the box and staining your home’s outdoor concrete.

It’s Easy To Maintain

The biggest benefit is that it is very easy to maintain. The concrete is sealed after applying the stain, giving an extra layer of protection. Water doesn’t impact the stained concrete, so feel free to sweep and mop as much as you want, without worrying about harming the surface.

It’s Durable

Concrete staining lasts a long time. The color becomes permanent, so it will not chip or peel. The sunlight doesn’t fade the color either, so it always looks beautiful.

It’s Affordable

Concrete staining may look expensive, but it is actually very affordable. Since there is little to no maintenance, it is a cost-effective way to add style to your yard. Since it is durable, you won’t need to replace or repair the concrete.

How To Stain Your Home’s Outdoor Concrete

Concrete staining is not easy to do yourself. This is because mistakes can’t be erased. But professionals know how to get the job done.

When using a professional like East Valley Painters, we can create a unique appearance with each stain. The possibilities really are endless!

Tips to Decorating Your Walls Without Ruining The Paints

It is always fun to decorate your home for the holidays or to have nice wall art hanging year-round. But if done incorrectly, it can really damage the paint on the walls. We have some tips to help you still be able to decorate without harming your painted walls.


High-Quality Paint

Of course, it starts with using high-quality paint on your walls. Never use cheap paint just to save a buck. The quality of paint is not where you want to make sacrifices.


Talk with our painting experts to learn about which paint we recommend. We also recommend prepping the walls properly, then using a high-quality primer, follow by using high-quality paint. Using high-quality paint will look better, last longer, and handle better when it comes to scratches, scruffs, and damage.


Limit the Use of Nails

There are many options out there when it comes to hanging decorations. The ideal way to ensure your decoration stays in place is to use a nail, but this can be damaging to your painted walls.


If you absolutely have to use a nail for heavy decorations, we recommended using the smallest nail possible. Also, only use nails for items that are permanent or in an area where you know you will always be needing decor.



Tips for Temporary Decorations

Avoid using nails for temporary decorations. When hanging holiday decorations like cobwebs and monsters for Halloween or garland and mistletoe for Christmas, use items that will not harm your walls.


Special adhesives and hooks will easily blend in and are great for light pieces.


Putty can also work well for decorations like cobwebs and garland. It is easy to remove and blends in so no one can see it.


Magnetic Paint

If you are really looking to get creative, check out magnetic paint. This is great to use when you are trying to figure out where you want to place your decorations. There are also magnetic primers available. Then, all you have to do is apply magnetics to the back of your décor, genius!
