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.

Tiffany blue


Robins’-egg-blue or Tiffany blue was once the “it” color a couple of years ago. But it has become a color classic, and is versatile enough to work in delicate, feminine interiors or modern, gender-neutral rooms. For a lighter take on Tiffany blue try Bluegrass Suite.

Cornflower blue
