Shades of grey with bright red.
Jennifer Reid, of W Network's Making House and Barlow Reid Design, gravitates toward grey for larger spaces. "I think this palette here is timeless," she says. "I lean away from bold colours on walls, and instead reserve them for easily changeable pieces like furniture and accessories. These chairs could be old wood hand-me-downs from the basement that were painted red — then orange, then blue. The rest of the palette is neutral enough that you could switch up the accent colour on a whim. You could even paint an accent wall in Benjamin Moore's Caliente (AF-290) if you wanted a good jolt of colour."
