Fine Paints of Europe’s Windsor Pink. A millennial pink that is neither juvenile nor sticky sweet. This isn’t a pink that leans toward peach color; rather, its grey undertones make it much duskier, more mature, and appropriate for use as a neutral. Like the trend toward lighter shades of greyish violet that we’ve already discussed, this ballet slipper-y pink is a popular paint color that adroitly blurs the line between masculine and feminine, friendly and poised.
Neutral colors are sometimes referred to as “earth tones,” meaning that the foundational colors found in and around the earth are neutral. It’s important to always consider, however, the undertone of any neutral color you’re wanting to use, whether or not it seems like an “earth tone” or not. Case-in-point, ivory might have pink or golden undertones, whereas white might be more yellow or even blue. Recognize these undertones as you choose the neutral palette for your space.
Use Neutral Colors After You’ve Determined Your Full Color Palette. Some might feel like this is the opposite order of decorating – shouldn’t you start from the foundation (neutral colors) and work your way up (accent colors)? The answer is: not usually. If you have an idea of what other colors you want in your space, it will be much easier to work backward to find the neutral that will best complement those accents. Also consider other space constraints, such as natural light (or the absence of it) and your personal preferences for spaciousness/coziness.
