As a self-proclaimed Grandmillennial decorator who gets to test out lots of paint colors for clients, I’ve honed in on the loveliest paint colors of the Grandmillennial look, and I’m sharing my favorites with you today.

Now don’t rush out and buy a gallon of one of these hues. Paint colors are always affected by the unique lighting situation in a room and the other color pairings.
