Paint Color Ideas for Bay Area Homes

Have you ever gotten tired of the paint in your home, but you couldn’t come up with any ideas that you liked better? Sometimes we look at the same tired walls so long that we can’t picture anything else there. So how can you escape this rut? What are some of the best places to gather paint color ideas for your Bay Area home?

One of the most prolific sources of paint color ideas is Houzz.com, a site dedicated to connecting homeowners to the ideas and contractors that will help them craft the house they love! You can do all kinds of searches for paint color ideas, localized by region. For example:

Otherwise, if you prefer a broader search, you can browse ideas from all over the country and sort by style:

Another popular place to go for paint color ideas is Pinterest. Again, you have a nearly unlimited means of searching and filtering the images to get just the perfect ideas for your home:

Technology has provided us with some amazing and powerful new tools for trying out color ideas. For example, you can try Benjamin Moore’s color visualizer, which allows you to apply a host of colors to rooms and see what combinations you like. You can even upload a photo from your own house and virtually apply colors to the walls, letting you see how those colors would actually look in your home!

Not to be outdone, Sherwin Williams also has a great set of tools for gathering paint color ideas. Check out their color inspiration page for homeowners on the Sherwin Williams website.

If all of these sources don’t help you pick the perfect color scheme, here’s one more idea to try. Take a set of dice, and paint each side of each di a different color. Roll the dice, and whichever colors face up, run with them! (OK, so that wasn’t sincere advice… we don’t recommend this method!)

But here is one more piece of real advice to help you choose paint colors for your Bay Area home: ask an experienced painting contractor! Here at MB JESSEE, we are constantly working with homeowners to help them choose the best colors for their homes. We keep current with trends and styles, and we can help you understand how a variety of color schemes will look in your space.

Customer Reviews

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”
