Here’s the news on neutrals that can help you to make the perfect color choice for your home. Need a wall color that fits in with your current home furnishings?

If you’re refreshing your furnishings and décor, start with a neutral wall color like Essential Grey. Neutrals like this establish a strong yet flexible foundation that your home’s color palette can be built upon. If you want your walls to be a backdrop rather than a center of attention, this shade, suitably named Backdrop, is perfect for helping those colorful decor pieces to stand out.

Now here’s something you probably didn’t know. Neutrals can be colorful, as in a lighter version of a bold color, giving them a sense of warmness or coolness. Warm neutral hues with hints of red or yellow, such as Tower Tan, make your room feel more comforting and cozy. A cooler neutral hue, like Magnetic Gray with undertones of blue green, tends to instill a calm, relaxing feeling to your space. Color palettes using grey tones can have a sophisticated modern feel.
A light gray, like Stone Lion, can create spaces that are fresh and refined. A darker gray, like Black Bean, has the same grounding qualities of black without the heaviness.
Want a wall color that will stand the test of time? Neutrals remain independent of style and trend making them just right for anyone who wants a look that’s long lasting. See for yourself.
