If you think that the classic paint color is white, then you might want to reconsider. Even though white goes with any style, there are myriad other hues that can add drama and depth to your home. And these paint colors are subtle enough to be treated as “neutrals.”

Eggshell


If you want to take baby steps away from white, eggshell is the way to go. It’s a little bit warmer and deeper than beige, and can work in any space, from living room to nursery. For a similar color, try Boysen’s Crystal Sparkle.
