How to Choose Neutral Paint Colors
When considering neutral paint color, look at the undertone that aligns with your desired design outcome:
- For a cozy feel in your room, consider a warm neutral paint color with undertones of yellow, red or orange.
- If you want a more open, airy vibe, consider neutrals such as white and gray that have cooler undertones like green, blue or purple.
Survey your room for predominant color direction. The room pictured here is rich with wood tones, so Jute AF-80, a warm beige, makes for a cohesive match.
Focus on Lighting and Neutral Colors
Lighting always plays a critical role in color perception, and neutrals are particularly sensitive. To select the best neutral paint color for your home, test each hue in different lighting conditions.
Here, the near wall in Revere Pewter HC-172 is a classic ‘greige’ that can appear as beige, gray or off-white based on changing light at different times of the day.
