10 New Neutrals to Love

If you find a neutral color palette soothing but are completely over bland, contractor-beige paint, consider one lively accent wall and go with "new neutrals" throughout the rest of your space.

Metallics

Don't overlook the impact of metallic finishes. Mix them up for a rich, layered look.

Spruce Green

This invigorating yet laid-back shade of green, as seen in the pillows, is all about versatility. It looks just as good on a wall as it does in textiles, and it goes with just about everything.

Muted Blue

Toned down, any rich color feels more like a neutral and plays well with an array of accent colors and natural materials.

Watery Grays

This wall color is the perfect shade of gray with a hint of cool blue. It pairs well with blues, blacks, browns and a variety of accent colors.

Black

There's a reason people love to wear black — it goes with everything. Punctuate your space with pops of black, whether it's a simple lampshade, a dramatic window treatment or an accent wall.

Greige

Greige is the perfect compromise between cool gray and warm beige, and we love it on floors. Why? Because it looks great, and it's forgiving of scuffs and dirt.

Charcoal

If you want instant drama without committing to a bright hue, charcoal is a fantastic option. This sophisticated shower curtain offers crisp contrast against the bathroom's classic white tile.

Sage Green

This low-key green is making a comeback with its serene vibe and grey undertones.

Gray

Say "so long!" to basic, white cabinets. Gray is the new go-to, and with so many shades to choose from, you can't go wrong. You'll also love that it won't show wear and tear as easily as bright white.

Tight Patterns

Believe it or not, if a rug or wallpaper pattern is small and tight enough, it can also work as a neutral (as long as the colors are muted).
