Neutral, Not Boring

By: Ashley

Neutral is such a broad color category. You have whites, grays, blacks, browns, beiges, tans, creams… These colors are anything but boring; you just have to utilize them correctly. You need depth and variety in your neutral colors. Neutrals do go with everything, but not all neutrals go with each other. You have to match the undertones of colors. Once you identify the undertone, you have a whole array of compatible colors to use.

The walls are painted a light soft yellow to keep it feminine, so I really want a basic color for the windows.
