If you had to paint your house all one neutral color what do you recommend?

Re: Paint

Right now I would do a nice, true, light grey.
I love how that looks with white moldings throughout.
So clean and bright but with more oomph than a white.
And then the accents colors can be bold and bright .

Grey Owl from Benjamin Moore or Moonshine from BM

I agree about using a light grey.

We painted the majority of our house in light gray (BM Himalayan Trek) and I love it. We have a few rooms in a beige, too, but I prefer grey. The kids rooms have color.

I just did BM Stonington Grey in my living room and bedroom. I also considered Grew Owl and Moonshine like Nell said, but I wanted just slightly deeper.

I just repainted my entire first floor GM Edgecomb Gray with pure white trim, and I love it...and I am a girl who loves color. I just used color on the furnishing and accent pieces. Edgecomb gray looks taupe in day and grayish at night.

Re: Paint

I used to love color too, I hated neutral walls.
Now I am so into the neutral greys for the whole house.
I just adore how it looks- so clean and bright and fresh and just sophisticated

I just painted my bedroom “cloud cover” by BM- it’s a super light gray- I love it

My LR/DR is winter wheat (so is my stair foyer and upstairs hallway) which is a very light beige. I love them both

I'm loving BM Wish - a light gray/beige. I just had my LR & DR painted in that color

We did this - we wanted a gray, but our furniture is a warm color so the Revere Pewter is a "greige" color.

Love Edgecomb Gray. We painted our bathrooms that color. So serene.

OP - We did our LR/DR in BM Shaker Beige.
