Ask most designers for a quick, easy, and affordable way to completely change the look of any room and the answer you’ll get is the same: paint! Choosing a color is when things get a bit tricky. To help you navigate those paint decks like a pro, we asked some of our favorite design insiders to share their go-to paint hue. From white to dark gray (and even green!), these designers gave up the goods. Rollers at the ready!
