Black

Intense hues don’t typically read “relaxing,” but a trip to the dark side might be in order. Ebony adds an edge to traditional white subway tile, especially if you paint the trim too.

Ink

Wallpapered rooms deserve a refresh too. Coat the ceiling with a shade too bold for a larger space — it’s a risk that’ll pay off, big time.

Taupe

Poised Taupe previously earned the title “Color of the Year,” but the brown-gray combo is here to stay thanks to its versatility. According to Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell at Milk & Honey Home, “Benjamin Moore’s Sparrow is a great, earthy gray, that pairs well with natural accessories, like a jute rug or matchstick bamboo blinds, as well as anything cream or ivory.”

Start the day off on the just the right note. “This color provides a clean, sophisticated backdrop,” says interior designer Kerrie Kelly. “But also adds a nice warmth when paired with white trim.”
