The New Neutral Wall Color

Is Gray the New Beige?….

While colorful rooms and accent walls are the spice of life in home building and home remodeling, neutral walls are the aesthetic staple. For years, homeowners gravitated toward varying shades of white and beige. From eggshell to taupe to sand, variations of beige dominated the neutral landscape–until recently, that is. These days, more and more homeowners look to don their homes with shades of gray instead. Maybe the trend is a response to the romance trilogy of the same name? We’ll let you decide.

What makes gray a “grayt” alternative to white and beige? 

 

It’s versatile and has the potential to complement both warm and cool palettes.
