Sellers often ask us what they should do to prepare their home to sell. Most of our advice can be simplified to two words: clean and neutralize. I love a bold wall color as much as the next person, but a fresh coat of neutral paint will allow buyers to easily imagine their own design choices in your home. This doesn’t mean you should paint all the walls bright white or boring beige, though. In fact, that can make a home look more like a rental unit than a forever home. Choose a few coordinating neutral tones, and you’ll create a beautiful flow from room to room and a modern, updated feel throughout the house. Here are a few whole-house color schemes to consider.

This mix of grays and greens from Martha Stewart’s line of paints is a great mix of classic neutrals and some more saturated colors. It’s one of my favorite color schemes.
I’d use the Indigo Batik color in this set for accents, like lamp shades or throw pillows.

And this final color scheme is truly neutral. Just a series of grays. However, with the right accents, this might be the perfect way to show off your home.
