Bright and bold colors are becoming a popular trend in many homes. People are creating more colorful palettes for eye popping effects. Many enjoy a colorful home, however not all like bold or eye popping colors. There are those who enjoy soft colors without dramatic variations, although these types of people still find blank white walls boring. The big question is, how to bring colors into a home of a homeowner who doesn’t like bright, bold colors? L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc has the answers. We will share different color palettes that even a color-shy person will enjoy.
Best Neutral Paint Colors
For those who want to add a sense of color to a room or space without using abrasive colors, it is best to use a variety of neutral color palettes. Some colors to consider for a soft neutral feel are grays, whites, beige with wood tones, and black accents. However, don’t feel limited to just these colors and tones. There are other great uses of different colors such as blues and greens.
Navy Blue & Gray Paint Color Schemes
Navy blues can scare color-shy people away. Nonetheless, here is a great way to use a splash of color to blend with natural colors. Soft gray tones that dominate the wall are gentle on the eye, but consider using a navy blue for trim. This is a great example of how you can use these two colors harmoniously and have them still be gentle on the eyes. Bathroom walls that are solid gray? Bring in a bit of color and help make bathrooms feel open and clean. Paint the door or just the door trim and bathroom cabinetry using the navy blue color. Similar idea for kitchens that have gray as the dominate color, while using navy or darker shades of blue to help add a little bit of color. However, don’t feel stuck with painting blue accents. Instead of paint, you can use furniture and décor with these shades of blues instead.
Shades of Pale Green & White Paint Colors
For those who still shy away from the gray and blue palettes, there are other great alternatives. Pale greens are another great way to keep those bold colors out of your home but still add a touch of color. Green hues are known to bring peace and a calm feeling to most people. Pale or mint hues of green with white trim blend together harmoniously. White and greens can work in any room of a home. Another great use of greens is to use two shades of green that work well together if you want more diversity.
Do Brown & White Go Together in a Room?
Soft tones of brown and white also look great together. Some examples where these two colors look good together are in living rooms, kitchens, or large areas. You can use solid brown walls with white trim or the reverse also works well. You can also use brown on half the wall, with the other half painted white. This also blends together without the need for those eye popping colors. These are just a few of the ways you can use this color palette.
