Warm Gray Taupe Neutral Paint Colors are Calming and Serene

Three mushroom taupe neutral paint colors link the open plan master bedroom suite. Neutral colors can be “neutral” in several different tonal directions. This client’s master en suite bath is a selection of three mushroom taupe neutrals that coordinate beautifully as they merge within the architectural space of the room.

I specified Benjamin Moore Paint colors for this project. Areas of the master bath were open to the bedroom, so the color palette was used throughout the suite. The house is a large adobe style ranch house with contemporary and traditional accents. The color palette we developed for the entire home flowed beautifully in each wing of the home, changing moods with the rooms. It was a lovely project.

*note: these particular colors are effective in this particular architectural environment. Test them before using them in your home.

They may be relieved at the paint counter, but that doesn't always mean they're going to love the paint color on the walls of their home. Matching paint colors to fabric and favorite object colors isn't a fail-safe way to choose colors. Though looking for paint colors that exactly match a favorite object may seem like the best solution to finding the proper hue, the wall color may not look as good as you imagined when the paint is on the walls in the three dimensional space of your home.
