Selecting a colour palette for your home renovation can often be a challenge however, opting for a timeless interior and exterior selection makes way for more creativity and bolder colour choices in your accessories and furnishings. Aside from the more traditional neutral tones, you will also find many timeless paint selections available in different colour families, from pastel hues to bolder greens and browns.
You can never go wrong selecting a classic neutral tone for your home’s interior and exterior colour scheme. The beauty of using a neutral colour palette is that you then have the creative freedom to use any colours and textures you wish in your decor and furniture with the ability of being able to change your home’s entire style later on as trends progress and evolve. Neutral paint colours are also proven to increase a home’s potential resale value, being more universally preferred among home buyers.
Dulux Lexicon provides a crisp, cool toned white that is ever so slightly tinged with a touch of grey. Perfect for modern and contemporary spaces, Lexicon looks right at home paired with grey, black and white interior décor and furnishings as well as coastal styled homes thanks to the crisp nature of the lighter strengths available in this colour.
Your first step in selecting a neutral tone is to decide whether you are looking for cooler or warmer tones, keeping in mind the overall vibe you are looking to achieve in your home. Cooler neutral tones lend themselves well to modern or contemporary styled homes and coastal designs, whereas warmer neutrals will be particularly suited for classic or traditional styled interiors.
