Looking for the perfect warm color pigment? Maybe you’ve thought about painting the walls a warm yellow or a cool blue, but only for a minute. Deep down, you know you’re a gender-neutral lunatic, more interested in the beige spectrum. While others may scoff, we neutral-tone fans know that taupes are the best choice because they are versatile, forgiving, and come in a wide variety of warm and cold colors. Better yet, when you paint a room in the correct taupe, you’re setting the stage for furniture and accessories to really catch on.
