Look beyond the flat greys, basic beiges and off-whites that have dominated paint picks for the past couple of years. We've selected our favourite new neutral paint colours that bring added life and depth to our walls in shades of velvety lilac, soft sage and warm taupe.
Go for taupe
Grey's friendlier cousin, taupe works well with warmer woods and is a great choice for open-concept spaces, where you need a single wall colour that works with everything.
