YES, I know, these colors, in this configuration, look almost identical.
In real life they are each unique, with subtle and non intrusive undertones …These 10 colors are my favorite Beigey Gray type “Neutrals”. Do not be fooled, some have the word “white” in their name BUT they are NOT whites. Not to be confused with the GREYED down whites either – these are TRUE NEUTRALS. They serve as an excellent backdrop to the bright happy colors we all love so much right now….and are anything but boring!
They are all Benjamin Moore Colors. I have used 7 of these colors in my current home. Ashwood – Dining Room, Feather Down – Entryway, Creamy White/ Spring in Aspen – Living Room, Maritime White – Upstairs hall, Edgecomb Gray – the Sleeping Porch AND Titanium – Dining Room table.
These colors are the absolute perfect backdrop to the colors I use in my fabrics, art, lamps and accessories. They are like a VERY GOOD FRIEND who HIGHLIGHTS your best traits…provides the necessary balance and lightness while letting you shine. All I know is that after what felt like a lifetime of changing colors every 8-12 months…I brought these colors into my home 5 years ago and I have NOT felt compelled to change my wall colors…nope, not yet.
They are not for everyone…but they work great for me!
SPRING IN ASPEN AKA “CREAMY WHITE” is one of my favorite Neutrals. It has a ..well “creaminess” to it! It goes more toward Gold that Grey..but is no way a yellow. Great is large spaces, warms them up.
“EDGECOMB GRAY” IS a true “Griege”…but warmer and lighter than Revere Pewter.

There you go…my 10 favorite Neutrals
Like I said, these colorS are not for everyone. But I think they dispel the myth that Neutrals are boring. I find these colors perfectly beautiful. And Versatile And flexible. They quite simply…JUST WORK!
Do you use any of these colors in your home?

Yes – I painted my family room and kitchen in Titanium and LOVE it. Blue grey undertones and looks fresh and clean with everything.
I LOVE TITANIUM!!!!!
