The 50’s design schemes were gold and green. Today, the Buyers actively out canvasing for homes love freshly painted rooms, however, choose your hues wisely because the “right” color can make all the difference. Today’s neutrals are in the grey shades, which enhance blue, yellow, black, charcoal, white, pink, pumpkin, orange furniture and accessories.

One of my favorite pastimes is visiting New Home developments to observe new design trends and color schemes. We are seeing less and less of “beige” and “tan” interior paint tones, and more “grey” tones that reflect soft mauve and grey-purple hues.
