A Complete Guide


Sherwin Williams Greek Villa quite possibly doesn’t have a downside. Reminiscent of villas on the Greek hillsides, this color is timeless and stunning.

Tip: As a self-proclaimed “frugalista”, I recommend buying a few paint samples of your top choices and using them to paint your swatches. It’s so much cheaper than buying gallons of paint!
