Hi Marty,

Thank you for contacting me at AllExperts with your question.

Wall color is the number one question I get.  While I think it's a personal preference, I have to recommend my number one answer for a neutral color:  Glidden's Toasty Grey, available from Glidden OR Home Depot.  

Having recently moved, I painted 4 rooms in this beautiful shade of taupe, and am so pleased with the results.  

Pairing it with a rich white on the baseboards and trims makes the room pop!

Try it and let me know what you think.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
