Get Real...Estate... Finding and Making a Neutral Territory!

One of the first questions I'm asked when working with clients is

"What is the best color to paint for Resale"?
Hmmm.... Let me think!

Resale or Not,  a nice Neutral is a great backdrop for any space. 




A light, clean, organized space appears large and a fresh coat of paint gives the feeling of a well-maintained home.
 Two very important aspects of home showings and living, for that matter!

Via Martha O'Hara



Many people think of neutral as boring, but it can be a wonderful canvas to display your personality (boring or not)! Teal, brown and black are really great colors to use in an otherwise neutral space.

Neutral doesn't mean Colorless... If anything, it allows you to bring in color throughout your space. 
Think of it as one big blank canvas!

Plus, choosing rich neutral hues throughout helps potential buyers envision how their personal style can be brought into the house.  

Which Neutrals you say????

 Some of my personal favorites are Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige , Believable Buff and Universal Khaki


I like to specify Sherwin Williams paints and most paint shops will match colors from any company. 
They can come really close, but it may not be an exact match. 
It's best to use paint from the same company throughout each space.





Painting your walls, ceiling and trim all the same color can help expand your space visually and give an illusion of higher walls.
BUT, ALWAYS be sure to choose the correct finish on each surface.
I like to use semi gloss on all trim/mill work, satin/eggshell on walls and flat on ceilings. 


I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER like to use Flat paint on walls.
 It is not washable and to me,, that is just not an option!!!
You never know when the dog might shake his wet coat in the living room or the kids might wipe their peanut butter and jelly covered hands down the hallway!!! :)

I love how the light colored walls contrast with the dark floors and furniture. It's such a clean and classic look!  It works in every style.
