As I was typing my post yesterday on Benjamin Moore’s Guilford Green I was thinking about the other colors that will work well with it – of course the orange hue came to mind for me. I was thinking about the gray trend that is also still very present in most homes and was wondering, if people want green in their homes now will grey be forced out? Gray and green aren’t the prettiest together.
If gray is forced out what neutral will take it’s place?
- Beige? Oh no you don’t!!!
- White? No, too stark.
- Gray? Looks lifeless next to green.
- Blue? Too tootie-fruitie
- Yellow? Possibly
- Pink? Too cotton candyish
So what color will be the next “go to neutral” when green becomes the new hue to have in the home?
I was thinking a warmer shift away from the cool grays to something like this – it’s more than a beige and less than a gold. I just feel that homes will gravitate to warmer more inviting homey colors. Look how pretty this looks with Guildford Green. It’s showing a little peachy here which is fine too but add a little more yellow to warm it up.
What do you think? Kiss gray goodbye?
How striking this would look with white trim and dark wood flooring.
