These variants of purple and grey are softer and more neutral compared to their originals. Similar to taupe, these choices are perfect for a calm and serene atmosphere. You'll be able to pair them with other neutral tones to add depth to the room.

7. Dark yellow

When thinking of yellow, we rarely associate this shade with the perfect wall colour. However, a darker shade of yellow, like mustard, brings an original and bold accent to the room.

In many examples, this colour is used to define different shapes painted on walls like circles and squares.

8. Hazel
