Perfect Neutrals in the 2023 Inspiration Home

This summer, Rainbow Paint was honored to supply all the paint to Birmingham Home & Garden’s Inspiration Home. This year’s home, built by RW Development, in the Forest Creek neighborhood of Vestavia Hills was exquisitely designed, built, and decorated by some of Birmingham’s top professionals. Our contribution was high quality, perfectly colored paint from Dunn-Edwards. Let’s look at three beautiful neutrals that can work in any space.

Kitchen and Dining Room walls and trim painted in Milk Glass by Dunn-Edwards

The first color is this amazing white from Dunn-Edwards called Milk Glass. Milk Glass was used on the walls and trim of much of the first floor of the house. This is a white that has a touch of creaminess to it, so it is not stark or harsh. But, it doesn’t pull green, blue, or yellow either. It is a true white. This is a white that can go up against any of the popular whites from Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore. You don’t need Alabaster or White Dove when you have Milk Glass!

Shaker Gray Accent Wall

The next perfect neutral we want to highlight is Shaker Gray from Dunn-Edwards. This is a warm, deep gray tone that has green and brown undertone. Shaker Gray is earthy and natural and not cold and sterile like some grays that were popular 10 years ago. This is a neutral for 2023 to inspire warmth and tranquility, making it perfect for a family room accent wall. The color also coordinates in a lovely way with the Milk Glass on the other walls and trim.

The third Dunn-Edwards neutral color we would like to highlight is Gunsmoke. Gunsmoke is a beautiful green color. It is not too dark, too light, too deep, too bright. It is a perfect tranquil shade that made the dining room in the Inspiration Home sophisticated but comfortable. Gunsmoke is a great neutral green to highlight the surrounding natural beauty in Forest Creek.
