I don’t have a go to colour, but what about the “Greige” shade that’s on the wall in the picture of the bedding?

I also like the “November Rain” in this Benjamin Moore swatch collage.

I know most people will disagree with me but my favorite go to is some form of off white.  Eggshell white or something like that.  My reasoning is that it allows me to change up the colors in the curtains, bedding, furniture etc. as often as I want.  I wouldn’t be committed to any particular color scheme.  (I hate painting.)  It also makes the room look bigger.  For you, I think espresso furniture and that bedding would really pop with the light colored walls – as it does in the pic.

The color of an iced coffee with cream… 🙂 I painted an old apartment that color and it looked so classy and matched with everything.

I cant make some suggestions, but what brand of paint do you want to use? That makes a difference.

What do you mean by neutral? I like gray as a neutral and could make some suggestions. However, there are some beautiful blues and greens that can be the same.

P.s. Ok. I just saw the bedding and hallway color. No beige! It’s too much beige!

I don’t have a specific paint color to recommend, but I love a very pale champagne as a neutral. Our living room is painted a champagne so pale you can barely tell it isn’t white, but it gives the room a warm glow that wouldn’t be there with just plain white.
