Kelly’s Five Favorite Neutrals

February 29, 2016

I have finally narrowed my top list of neutral paint colors that I frequently use! I feel confident about my top choices, which are also my favorites, and I want to share my color advice with you.

My list of favorite neutrals, in no particular order:

Revere Pewter HC-172:

I can’t seem to get enough of this color. It is a beautiful light gray in brightly lit rooms and a pretty soft beige in rooms with low light. Gorgeous and happy!

Grant Beige HC-83:

My favorite beige paint color. A soft and subtle neutral. This color works well with both white and stained trim. You can read more about this favorite color here.

Cloud White OC-130:

Hard to choose one white. This is not a white for all instances, but works well with many color combinations.

Hale Navy HC-154:

Another favorite color that works so well with both white and with stained trim.

And last but certainly not least..

Gray Owl OC-52:

A very soft gray with just a slight undertone of blue:

All of these five colors can also be used together as well. For instance, Grant Beige would be a pretty entry color, with  an office off the hall in Hale Navy, kitchen in Cloud White, living room in Revere Pewter and master bedroom in Gray Owl just for one example. These are also my perfect staging colors that I use often!

It was a hard for me to narrow down the list to my favorites. So many other beautiful colors out there! Do you have a top list of colors? I would love to hear them!
