Paint Your Walls a Color That isn’t Grey or White

October 24, 2017 by Ariana | 0 Comments

Pinterest is my go-to source of inspiration for new post topics.  As I was scanning through my feed, today’s post came to me — nearly all of the interior design images that I’ve pinned or admired include white or possibly grey, walls.  What paint colors are good for walls that are not white or grey?  In recent years, I’ve used several different shades of grey on projects for clients and myself.  And I don’t see beige and taupe making a coming back anytime soon.  So I did a little digging and came up with some new inspiration.

This pale lavender has enough grey in it to keep this pretty hue neutral.

For a bit more saturated color, this blush wall looks surprisingly chic.

This robin’s egg blue may be too bright for many, but if you love prints and pops of color, this shade may be for you.

Not ready to break away from neutral white walls?  Take baby steps with one bold accent wall.  We’re using a similar shade as this peacock teal in a client project and I can’t wait to see the results.

I’m not sure what to call this color — greige, mauve?  Either way, it’s cool and modern.

For those daring enough to do so, go the opposite with black walls, which sure make the beautiful light fixture and blush sofa stand out.
