What makes a color "neutral" anyway? Neutrals are normally those colors without a lot of color, like ivorys, blacks, and yes, beiges. For the purposes of this post, we're referring to colors that wrap your rooms in a sophisticated shade without stealing all the limelight away from your other furnishings (but are still pretty bold, though). From grays, to deeper shades of other colors, these colors are neutral in that they'll go with everything you have but won't be so boring they put you to sleep.
