You’re either a “white wall person or you’re not”

I find it to be “the perfect pure white” has to be not too warm, not too cold and without any funny undertones. I’ve painted entire houses in it because it’s so versatile. It works in any room, for any style and with any other color, making it the ultimate blank slate of luxury.

Light Gray “go-to color”

Unlike blues, which tend to look juvenile, light gray works well with every other color, I find the light grays tend to be the new neutral, particularly silvers, and works well for both men and women. I pair that with warm beiges, topped-off with crisp white accents, no other color combo looks more fresh and inviting.

"Modern taupe color”

It has to be not too grey and it’s not too brown “Modern taupe”, so it pairs nicely with warm and cool colors. Most recently I have paired it with dark grey and mustard accents, along with warm woods, and white trim. It is a fantastic shade for living rooms and entryways.

Special mention: “Kendall Charcoal” Benjamin Moore HC-166

It is a beautiful, deep, luxurious, grey. It’s not too dark, and has a sort of softness to it that makes it a great neutral for a living room, hall/entryway, bedrooms, or kitchens. I pair it with crisp, bright white trim and white accents that really pop against it.
