January 16th, 2017 Painting With Neutral Colors 101

img_1845

First things first. What’s a neutral color? To most neutral colors are beiges and whites, or any “light” color. But in actuality, neutrals are colors that don’t show up on the color wheel. That is whites, grays, blacks, and some beiges and browns.

One of the main advantages of painting your home with neutrals is that they look fabulous with any style (contemporary, modern, traditional, etc.). They are also timeless, so if you decide to change your furnishings or decor at any moment, you really would not necessarily need to change your wall color. You basically cannot go wrong.

Of course, keep in mind that going with a neutral does not mean you must choose a black, gray, white, or beige. Once you know what “neutral” you want to go with, you can now start considering what color undertone you would want to see. A good rule of thumb for choosing neutrals’ undertones is as follows: If you like warm colors, than beiges would be a good option as they have yellow, red, and green undertones. On the flip side, with blues, purples, and greens as undertones, gray would be a perfect candidate for those of you who rather like cool tones.
