Recommend me some interior colors that are neutral and modern. Steering towards gray

Any input? Need a color that will look fresh, modern, and neutral so that if I decide to sell the house in a few years it will be acceptable to most buyers. Currently have a light beige color that the previous owner did and while beige is always a safe color, it reminds me of the 90's and early 2000's. Plus I'm getting tired of looking at it. That said I'm leaning towards white doors, trim, and ceilings while painting the walls a light gray.

Well if that's the case one room needs to be painted red.

I like blue-whites and blue-grays. A nice light yellow also works well in certain rooms, especially basements.

I was thinking a light blue-gray like shaker gray from BM.

That looks pretty nice. You gonna do the whole house one color, one color for the hallways, living room, kitchen, and then a different color for bathrooms and bedrooms, or some other variation?

Pretty much. Bathrooms in some shade of white.

I dislike rainbow colored houses for some reason.

Look up Sherwin Williams Knitting Needles. I just know the color because my wife just had me paint our common areas this color.

If you want to use a modern color for your interior design, I suggest that you use Turquoise color because it is the best and trendy color for 2016/2017. and it can fit almost all home styles.

Black. Hides the dirt and it looks sleek too.

Grey is not a lively color. It would work for people who want a box to come home.
