When most people think about decorating with neutrals, they typically go for browns + beiges, with the occasional black + white scheme. Over the last few years, however, gray has become quite popular as an alternative. It’s not as harsh as black, but it’s a little richer than stark white.
With paint, the key is finish (flat, never gloss), trim (go for creamy) and lighting source (to help balance out the shadows). When selecting a color palette, you can treat it like you would if creating an outfit: it pairs well with creams, jewel tones, pastels, metallics, and even prints. It can be the whole shabbang or just an accent color.
