A Paint Color Family to Avoid Like the PLAGUE when Staging!

A funny and clever twist on how NOT to go neutral.  The phrase "pantyhose colors" really demonstrates exactly what to avoid.  Thank you so much for putting this together, Michelle Molinari.

Pantyhose Colors. That's what I call them and I see them in houses all the time.

If it looks like flesh... a flesh-colored crayon, baby-doll skin, or silly putty, 


I know builder beige is boring. Go yellow-er, gray-er, or greener. But whatever you do  - DON'T GO PINKER!

It's gonna look bad. Real bad. Very very bad. Nothing is going to tone it down once it's up, and nobody really wants to move into a pink living room or a house painted entirely with this color.


These colors are fine for accent colors, but on the wall, they are simply overwhelming.

Ok. I'm getting off my color soapbox and going to go try and find some floor tile for a very pink house on my staging docket this week.
