Dark maroon bedroom ideas 2018

Why all the fuss?

About 90% of the time that I am contacted by a client through an online, they are looking for a neutral color to use in the majority of their home. There is typically a reason that they are repainting if it is an existing home (not a new build). Let me explain…

Design Trends Overview

In the early 2000’s, the “Tuscan” trend was all the rage. Browns, golds and warmer neutrals were the interior look of the moment. Design trends tend to cycle through about every decade. The decade turned, and the new trend became what we call the “Gray” trend. Everything went cooler, more fresh and crisp.

Trying to Transition

Here is where the conflict arises when I receive feedback from my clients. They are either living in or buying a home that is still decorated and painted during the Tuscan era. They want to update the look of their home, but the problem is the expense involved in a complete overhaul of the current selections (countertops, floors, etc.).

Since most of my clients are working with what they have or making adjustments gradually, my goal is to help them transition from the Tuscan look to more of a gray. Most people don’t necessarily want to go totally gray, so here is where my top neutral paint colors come in.

My Top 5 SW Neutral Paint Colors

I know you’ve been dying to know my top 5!! The truth is that there are so many great neutral paint colors that it is hard to choose just 5. Below are my top 5 most specified go-to neutral paint colors.

Be sure to click on the links for the colors to see dark maroon bedroom ideas 2018 my color scheme picks for each. Feel free to leave a comment with your top 5 neutral paint colors!

Balanced Beige

Balanced Beige SW 7037

, oh how I love this color. It is by far my most specified color for clients. The reason is really laid out in my description above. It is a perfect transition color.

Balanced Beige is not to golden, not too gray. It is a greige that has a taupe undertone that tends to go well with floor tiles and countertops that still have the Tuscan brown tones in it. Basically, it goes more gray without totally clashing with the current selections that are still beige.

I love this color so much that I did an entire post and color review on it last year..

Accessible Beige

Accessible Beige SW 7036

One shade lighter than Balanced Beige, is Accessible Beige. I specify this color if my clients want a softer look and have a space with not very much natural light.

Just like Balanced Beige, Accessible Beige is a greige that has taupe undertones and is a favorite in spaces that are in need of an update. Accessible Beige looks beautiful next to darker furniture pieces (like dark taupe sofas) and is a perfect color for the soft look of the “farmhouse style”.

I also like to pair Accessible Beige with accent colors like for a bit of contrast.

Agreeable Gray

Agreeable Gray SW 7029

My second fav, is most definitely. This is also a top contender for my most specified color. I typically suggest this color to clients that want to go a bit more gray and have selections that have less brown/beige undertones.

Agreeable Gray is a bit cooler than Balanced Beige while still being on the warm neutral spectrum. As shown in the picture below, where I specified Agreeable Gray fro a client who was renovating her kitchen.

As you can see Agreeable Gray looks gorgeous and is a perfect match with blue-grays and blue-green color combinations. The kitchen island below is, which I recommend to pair with neutrals like Agreeable Gray.
