(OMAHA, Nebraska)  —  When thinking about what colors to paint your home before the family visits for Thanksgiving, consider blue! The majority of Americans, 62 percent, consider blue their favorite color, according to a 2017 online Harris Poll survey commissioned by Sherman Williams, Wyman Painting of Omaha’s preferred paint brand.

“In the case of blue, it’s often subconsciously linked to trust, dependability, and competence and can also be associated with rest and provide a cooling sensation – making it a great choice for a bedroom or office,” said Dr. Augustin.

Black bold paint is the second favorite color (32 percent), capable of turning contractor-white doors into wow. Choose semi or high-gloss in areas with a lot of natural light. Matte black hues give off an earthy air. Black on moldings and trim work wonderfully, too.

Red packs potential, and survey respondents chose red as their third favorite color (31 percent).

Red evokes celebration, energy, and love. Most Americans (58 percent) surveyed prefer a mix of vibrant colors sprinkled throughout the home, rather than neutrals.
