Our Top 12 Neutral Paint Colors

Posted in: I'm Moving, Home Decorating

Remember when Jerry got new cabinets? Too many decisions can fry your brain! Don’t let that stop you from making the important calls on the design of your home.

When you’re moving into a new home, you probably have a billion paint colors on your mind. There’s just nothing better than sprucing up your new place with a fresh coat of paint, but picking the exact shade you want can be a bit of a doozy, and we’re guessing most people find it overwhelming. Don’t pull a Jerry and let someone else decide – you might end up hating it. Let us help you narrow down your choices to a manageable few.

This post would be 10 pages long if we chatted about every paint color of the rainbow. So today, we’re just going to stick to neutral colors. Here are our tried and true favorites when it comes to beige, gray, and every shade in between.


Gray is totally trendy right now, and we can see why. You can go as light or as dark and moody as you want. Many grays tend to give off a “cooler” vibe, so keep that in mind when choosing a color. In fact, in my home our grays can sometimes look blue in certain lights. So be careful when choosing the perfect shade of gray for your home.
