One of my favorite parts of a home renovation or decor update is seeing the new paint color go up on the walls. It’s the part of the project where I can really see how all the furniture choices are going to come together. I have realized though, that for a lot of people (including myself!), picking a paint choice can be much easier said than done. While we all know paint isn’t permanent, the last thing anyone wants have is the wrong color go up on the walls while you are coming down the home stretch of your home project. So, I have rounded up my top five neutral colors that are sure to please in any space…I promise!
Grant Beige is that reliable color that can really do no wrong in my eyes. I love this color for interiors that lend themselves to more traditional design. This color is light enough that is keeps the space looking clean and airy, but will give a good contrast to any white trim or ceilings you have. This beige color definitely leans towards the cooler side, so you will be safest pairing it with colors like blue and gray.
Swiss Coffee is for those that want the feeling of white walls without actually painting the walls white. If you want to layer grays and whites on an wall this would be a great choice for the walls that have the most uninterrupted areas. I love this color for a bachelorette pad, or a home that has feminine accents.
I might be biased when it comes to Silver Drop, but I absolutely LOVE this color. I love it so much I used it in my daughters nursery and could not be more happy with the results! This gives your walls a little touch of gray and it allows white furniture and lighter accent colors to pop inside the room.
If you are looking for a true gray that isn’t “blah”, look no further than Stonington Gray. This color will give your room a blank slate for picking accent colors, so if you are someone that likes to change up your pillows, throw blankets and accent pieces from season to season this would be a great option for your walls.
I like to think of Pale Oak as a “griege”, which is the perfect blend of beige and gray. It’s a color you won’t get tired of year or two and it is also makes it easy to mix wood tones within a space. This color knocked another favorite of mine Manchester Tan off the list, but I’m not that sad about it!
