The Best Neutral Paint Colors of All Time
Neutrals are anything but boring. These timeless colors blend with any furnishing and work in any space. The definition of a neutral hue has expanded. Shades of green, gray, and even black are considered a part of the family. Really any color can be a neutral based on how it’s used in a room. Here are seven of our favorite shades—from a classic white and a creamy beige to a pale pink and soft green.
Wevet (No. 273) by Farrow & Ball
White Dove (OC-17) by Benjamin Moore
Vert de Terre (No. 234) by Farrow & Ball
Black (25-17) by Pratt & Lambert
Outfit your walls in a neutral that’s probably your go-to for clothing too. Pratt & Lambert’s Black sets a moody, dramatic tone in decorator Fran Keenan’s cottage. Accessories like artwork and draperies pop off the dark backdrop. Use it in a room with lots of natural light so the space doesn’t appear too dark.
Calamine (No. 230) by Farrow & Ball
Paint living room walls in a soothing, not-too-delicate pink, and pair it with a bright white trim. Here, homeowner Brittney Forrister lacquered the built-in bookshelves in Calamine (No. 230) by Farrow & Ball which adds depth. Choose a room that gets enough of sunlight so the pink stays fresh and airy.
