This color includes a huge palette of shades: from light to dark, from cold to warm. Be careful with the choice: for example, cool gray is not suitable for all rooms. A north-facing room with such walls will look extremely uncomfortable, while a sun-drenched room may well make friends with this shade. Be that as it may, gray walls are a versatile canvas that will stand up to any design experiments.

This is a warm tone, which can also be an excellent base for design solutions in different styles. Olive looks equally good in different light intensities and makes the space cozy, enveloping. You can enhance it with another warm palette: beige, sand, mustard — or, conversely, dilute it with colder gray. By the way, these colors look great in combinations with each other.
Deep dusty blue, which belongs to the cold range, can also become basic — due to gray «notes». This gray undertone, which neutralizes the blue and mutes it, improves the compatibility of the shade with other palettes. Of course, this solution is best used in well-lit spaces, combining it with warmer or neutral tones, such as white, brown, beige. So you will achieve a balanced interior in terms of warmth and richness.

Ivory is a little more interesting than just white, but just as versatile. It can be combined with absolutely any shades and styles, used solo, creating a monochrome interior, or diluted with brighter companions. In addition, it belongs to a warm palette, which means it looks harmonious and cozy in the room. Another advantage of the shade is its complexity and versatility — such solutions always make the interior visually more expensive.
The palm in the entire neutral palette certainly belongs to beige. By the way, this tone, like many other basic shades, exists in various variations. Beige is not so simple: for example, it can be cold if it has a gray undertone, which means it will make the interior less comfortable. Beige is ideal for both minimalist spaces filled with naturalness and complex interiors. So that beige does not look boring, combine it with other more characteristic tones — for example, with its complementary and noble dark brown.

6 light peach
The peach tone is quite insidious, because it is worth choosing a more saturated option or moving towards yellow — it will turn from basic into tasteless. That is why it is better to choose the most light, delicate, as if bleached, with only a slight hint of peach. Then it will become an excellent warm base, inviting and cozy. And it is wrong to consider this tone suitable only for a children’s room or bedroom — living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms also look stylish and harmonious in it.
