Neutral is an important color in the room, even if you are attracted to the color. And there is a lot to navigate when it comes to neutral color choices.
I want to share some of the neutral colors that I’ve used in our home, why I was drawn to them, and what I think they bring to life. bedroom. In the list below, I included four different colors: white, cream, light pink (which visually reads as neutral), and black.
If you are deciding on a neutral color for your home, I hope this post will be helpful for you. This will also be a great post and bookmark for your future design projects!
Here are the top four colors I’ve used in our home.
1. White Dove by Benjamin Moore
Where I used this color: The basement family room is now on the ground floor of our previous home.
This is pure white that does not have a reproductive effect. It’s a warm color but because it doesn’t have a lot of yellow undertones, it doesn’t read like cream. As the design trend is moving towards heat and color, this is a great classic white color to use.
2. The Boat of Benjamin Moore
Where I used this color: The family room in our current home.
If you’re looking for a neutral color that has a bit of a visible effect, Sail Cloth might be the color for you. It is a warm color that is a step up from White Dove. If you want to highlight the contrast between two neutrals, you can pair Sail Cloth and White Dove together like I did in our family room.
3. Plastering by Farrow & Ball
Where I used this color: The rug is in the entryway and guest room of our house now.
Plaster is a great color to use if you want something beyond white or cream too full of Although it is a bright pink, it still reads like a neutral color and is a versatile choice for many different rooms.
4. Iron by Benjamin Moore
Where I used this color: The cabinetry was in our previous kitchen.
This is a beautiful black and gray color that brings depth without overwhelming the room. Sometimes, a good black color can be so powerful that it dominates every other design in the space. Wrought iron has a softness to it that I really love.
