TOP TEN BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLOURS FOR FURNITURE.
As a decorative furniture painter for over 10 years, I have used a lot of paint! Before I had the shop I sold to the public and also to other retailers in my local area. Those retailers were stockists of different paints and so I had a fair bit of experience with a whole range of paint brands.
I had lots of favorites but because I used so many I knew there wasn’t a one paint fits all sorta deal and loved nothing more than experimenting, did I mention I got paid to do this? 😁
So without further ado here is my list of top 10 neutral paint colours for furniture.
No 10 Annie Sloan Country Grey.
Country Grey is a soft beige that reads slightly green. It has warm umber undertones and pairs great with blues and greens.
Jo from Perfectly Imperfect did a fantastic job on this bureau click here to see the details on her Facebook page.
No 9 Autentico Regency White
A yellow based off-white, rich warm and pairs well with natural wood tones.
I painted this cute breakfast set a few years back and I still love it.
No 8 General Finishes Antique White.
A lovely off-white, with a grey undertone this is a great white to pair with any colour.
General Finishes Antique white bedsides.
No 7 MMS Milk Paint Linen.
A beautiful soft creamy white, not too yellow, almost an aged white with warm undertones. My go-to Milk Paint colour when white is too bright.
A pretty French Settee. The Frame is painted in Linen.
No 6 Fusion Mineral Paint Catherdal Taupe.
Offering the slightest hint of a soft pink undertone, this neutral taupe goes with virtually anything! It’s my favorite go-to beige.
These Ikea built ins had a makeover using Cathedral Taupe from the classic Fusion range.
No 5 MMSMP Farmhouse White.
This is called the ‘perfect white’ not too cool or warm and the coverage is better than the other white in the MMSMP line. I use it for anything country and it works beautifully with any colour.

No 4 Fusion Mineral Paint Little Lamb
Little Lamb is sneaking in on this list purely because it’s on trend and it’s our most requested colour for commission work. It’s a saturated grey that’s warm, not cool and reminds me of thunderclouds.
This pretty chair has a peek-a-boo floral back. Painted with Little Lamb from the Fusion Tones For Tots range.
No 3 MMSMP Mora
Most people would not consider this a neutral but, it’s not a saturated colour and it’s not a pastel, so it’s perfect when someone wants to inject a bit of colour but don’t want it to be overpowering. It is a grey bluey green and changes depending on the light.
MMSMP Mora chippy French cabinet. Authentic age in an instant!
No 2 Fusion Mineral Paint Limestone
Limestone is a beautiful cream, warm and rich with a yellow undertone, it goes perfect with wood tones for the country cottage feel.

No 1 Fusion Mineral Paint Raw Silk
I would describe Raw Silk as a true off-white it’s not yellow or too grey, so goes well with warm interior colours or cool….like I said perfect!
