Are Neutrals Timeless?

Don’t get me wrong, I love bold, beautiful and sometimes trendy colors.  Like coral, I can’t get enough of that right now.  But could I paint a whole room in coral?  Probably not.  Which makes me wonder if trend colors can come and go but the style and sophistication of neutrals can last forever.

I’m talking about beautiful, enduring colors that will be as perfect tomorrow as they are today.  These colors have a love them and leave them (for a long time) sort of flair.

  1. no, of course they are not timeless. they were not popular in the past, especially when people could afford to have bold colors. people coveted color. neutral paint colors have never been popular outside of the usa and a few european countries, and that popularity only goes back 30-40 years.

  2. I have to say they are really boring. My sister just painted the interior of her house and played it safe with neutrals. You just end up walking through and really not paying attention to anything. Like I said..boring!

    • You make up for the neutral on the wall with colorful pillows, furniture, accessories. Use your imagination. Decorating is the fun part and that’s what makes the walls pop — no matter how neutral.
