This has been the trend in interior design for a long time to give the illusion of space and openess. But lately, a lot of people started adding a different color on one of the walls to make it more interesting, some introduced yellows or different shades of yellows to give the illusions of cheerful sunshine. Some went for a very light hint of green. Between the yellow and the green (hints of them)
you are actually bringing the outdoors in. The idea is to make it neutral but not boring.
As far as the exterior of a house, different shades of grays and a faux bricks in the right places especially around the garage will make it look more expensive than it really is.

Many home exteriors are vinyl or aluminum and can't be painted. But they can be power washed. Clean up all debris and landscaping. Cut back trees and shrubs.
