Afraid of commitment to a paint colour scheme? Our advice…start with Neutral Tones. By keeping your walls a neutral colour, you can easily add colour accents and personality accessories, like rugs, throw pillows, plants and wall art.


With tones as varied as driftwood grey and creamy latte, neutrals are anything but boring. Grey isn’t just grey — it comes in a wide variety of intensities and shades, with subtle nuances that add a designer approach to any decor. And the right shade is a matter of personal preference. For example – rather than looking harsh, the cool grey used on the walls of this bedroom (below) get cosied up with warm wood flooring and framing around the French doors and interior windowpane.


“First find out what emotion you want your space to play into — airy, earthbound, dramatic — then proceed to choose your colour from there,” says designer and PPG Pittsburgh Paints colour and design adviser Vicente Wolf.

Design neutral gives you the freedom to change things up, and easily transform your space, should you get bored.
