The New Neutral: Making Your Home Inviting for Prospective Buyers

2. Experiment with Beige

Contrary to popular opinion, white is not the greatest color for your home’s walls. Not only is it a bit harsh and unflattering, it can actually draw attention to flaws, such as uneven walls or cracks. So when you’re trying to “tone down” your home so that it’s more broadly appealing, think soothing colors that are on the second or third step on most color fans of paint chips. Beige, in particular, is a nice choice. Far from being boring, it comes in a range of interesting softer shades from latte to cappuccino to cocoa, and it coordinates well with other popular
colors including soft aqua, powder blue, or pale tangerine.
