Classic Neutral Paint Colors

Neutral paint colors are classic, there is no doubt about that.  Neutrals are always included in any great color palette; from the clothes we wear, like the little black cocktail dress hanging in the closet or a pair of Carhartts that continue to take a beating, down to the homes we live in, such as the traditional white colonial with black shutters or the tan stucco with an ocean view.

As with all colors though, a few neutrals continue to stand out from the rest.  These three happen to be some of our favorites: Sherman Williams Accessible Beige, Light French Gray, and Neutral Ground.  All three have enough color to be distinct but are subtle enough to go with just about anything.

Neutral Paint Colors We Love

Classic Neutral Paint ColorsAccessible Beige (SW7036) is that neutral paint color that realtors seem to gravitate toward when a client needs to repaint before listing a home.  It is just enough color to add some warmth, but not so much that potential buyers can’t imagine their own colors or their furniture in the home.  When painting Accessible Beige we’ve found it to be true that people who want to see a bit of gray on the wall will see gray and those that want to see a bit of tan will see tan.  Everyone wins!

Light French Gray (SW 0055) is a gorgeous, medium-toned gray with an undertone of warmth, while still maintaining its true gray.  Light French Gray is truly a classic and is found in the “Interior Historic” section of Sherwin Williams’ color wheel.  I’ll be honest that I find myself inexplicably drawn to this section of neutral paint colors, as they include some truly stunning colors and some neutrals that I feel truly stand the test of time. Light French Gray also has enough depth of color to provide a great contrast to any white or off-white it pairs with.

Neutral Ground (SW 7568) lives up to its name.  While it is nearly impossible to find a true neutral color (i.e. a color that doesn’t noticeably pull another color, most often green, blue, yellow, pink/purple), this color does a fairly great job.  As with all colors, note that lighting can make a huge difference and it may not always be the perfect color for your space.  I used this color to pair with a dark accent wall in my dining room and I just love the result.  I’m a color girl at heart and while this color is admittedly lighter than I generally go, it still contrasts with my white trim and provides a soft, subtle ambiance overall, while the accent wall adds drama to the space.  

As always, let your colors create an extension of who you are and the possibilities are limitless!
