Picking paint colors – Blog by Darci Hether New York

one of the quickest and most inexpensive ways to bring new life to a space is with paint. and one of the questions i’m most frequently asked is what my favorite paint colors are. well, anybody who knows me knows that [for the most part] i like to keep the walls in my interior projects crisp, clean and neutral….and for me, the perfect “neutral” color is a shade of grey.

the questions that always seems to follow”what color should i paint my walls?” is then about the trim work. again, for me, crisp and clean, white and bright almost always wins out!
