Neutral Paint Colors

Gray’s are a very common household color when people want something neutral and soft. Because of this, you see different shades of gray in every single home you come across. Most people think that neutral colors are safe, traditional and comforting, which is true. Neutral colors are meant to create a backdrop rather than a focal point. However, if used incorrectly all those beige, gray, brown, and white swatches have a tendency to blend together.

Here are some ways to pick out soft neutral paint colors to showcase the spaces within your home. 

Blue. For bedrooms, a soft sky blue is calming and a logical choice for rest and relaxation. This shade of blue is best paired with a crisp white.

Greige. Although technically not a real color, it is used very often. A soft gray with beige undertones complements white marble perfectly. It is a excellent solution for people who feel gray is too cold.

Yellow. Although tricky to get right, yellow is beautiful color to liven up a space. A tip for picking yellow is to select something that looks almost beige, because it almost always is much brighter on a wall than on a paint chip.
