The best taupe paint colors to totally refresh your home

If you're looking for the perfect neutral to add to your space, taupe is a fantastic choice. With its warm undertones and delicate coloring, taupe can ground your design and add an elegant flair that you can't get with other neutrals like creams and beiges. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of just how diverse and sophisticated taupe can be. To give hesitant decorators a starting spot, we've gathered some of our favorite taupe colors to show off just how gorgeous this hue can be.
What color is taupe?
Taupe can appear both beige and grey, but don't mistake this neutral blend for its sister color, greige. Taupe has a darker and richer undertone of brown or tan and often has hints of mauve, adding a little more depth to the shade. Where greige tends to be very light and more muted, taupe is a deeper, warmer color. On the lighter end of the spectrum, taupe can also appear to have more elements of cream, but the brown, purple, and green undertones make it more saturated than the classic neutrals.
