Libby Langdon's Top 10 Neutral Paint Colors

Don’t stress about picking a paint color — here’s one designer’s go-to list.

When you hear the term “neutral,” do you instantly think of boring beige? Well, neutrals don’t need to be a snooze, says interior design expert Libby Langdon. Still, there are so many neutral paint swatches that it can be dizzying trying to pick one.

Incorporating Hot New Trends to Update Your Home for the New Year

1) Rich colors are the buzz for 2010 and Peacock blue is leading the pack, not navy and not turquoise but that rich, warm shade in between. This is great as fabric on an occasional chair, wall color, drapery fabric or even used just as a small accent color in accessories. Also, orange as an accent is still very chic, whatever the shade, orange adds a feeling of warmth and a great pop of color. Mauve, lavender and dark eggplant are also very in and look great paired with navy blue, a silvery gray and white. Having the newest hue somewhere in your home can instantly revive a space that is looking tired and drab. If you’re afraid to paint an entire room just paint just one accent wall, maybe just a wall your sofa is on or your bed is on. You can also incorporate these great colors in a smaller way – get some throw pillows or add accessories in your favorite shade of a new color and wake up your space!
