Neutral interiors are just as popular as ever, and there are several good reasons for it. Neutral rooms are elegant, classic, and they never go out of style.

Decorating with neutrals is such a decor classic. A gorgeous neutral palette is a joy to live in and plays nicely with any color added to it! Today let’s talk about doing neutrals right!

When we think neutrals we should not just think “white”. Neutrals run from black to browns to taupe and beige and grays and whites and everything in between! We all love the calm and uncluttered look of neutrals working together and the clean serene feel it gives us!

Neutrals are anything but boring… if done right! There are a few easy to follow rules for keeping

Now let’s talk about decorating with neutrals. Make sure you think about the following…

Embrace Modern Styling

If your decorating style leans towards modern or contemporary, a neutral color scheme is something you should seriously consider. Black, white, beige, and gray lend them well to the simplicity of the contemporary and mid-century modern decor. As always, remember to include a variety of textures and tones to keep it from falling flat.


Add Comfort and Warmth

Every neutral room needs some warmth. There are a few ways to accomplish this. One is through the use of soft textures that feel nice to the touch. Think about using velvet, wool, etc. Another is through using neutrals with warm undertones. For example, if gray is your neutral of choice considering a shade with brown undertones instead of blue undertones. And finally, to add warmth, include some wood tones. Wood adds depth to any space so pop in some wood tables or side chairs with wooden legs. A little bit can go a long way. If the wood isn’t your style, metals such as brass and bronze can also help add warmth.


Create a Relaxing Atmosphere

If you want to create a relaxing retreat, a neutral color palette is a way to go. In this neutral living room from “Income Property,” a large linen-colored sectional fills one corner and is enhanced by a collection of throw pillows. Notice that the pillows are all different shades of similar; light neutrals–just enough to create interest without causing visual clutter. Even though there’s blue in the room, it’s soft enough that it reads as neutral, a clever trick that can be accomplished with almost any pastel shade.


Include Architectural Details

Great shapes and architectural detail get noticed in a neutral color palette and they can really bring a room to life. To add interest to a neutral living room, think about including architectural details such as ceiling beams, wainscoting, decorative columns, and even crown molding. These elements have a dramatic impact on rooms with neutral color schemes. Remember, too, that neutral doesn’t have to mean white––the reclaimed wood beams in this room provide contrast to the all-white decor, making the room visually dynamic.


Decorating with Neutral Colors

Neutral living rooms can be calm and relaxing, but they can also be fun, energetic, and full of life. The key is to use a variety of complementary tones, mix materials, and play with patterns​—just like you would with any other color palette.


Use Pattern and Texture

When decorating with a neutral color scheme, it’s important to bring in a variety of patterns and textures. By offsetting roughly with soft, shiny with matte, and course with smooth, you create depth and interest, making the room more dynamic. Think about using textures like linen, velvet, cable knits, and sheepskin. When it comes to using textures in a neutral living room, you can almost never have too many. Patterns are similar; you need some to create contrast, but try to stick with the regular rules for mixing patterns.


Create a Luxury Look

A neutral living room does not have to be bland. In fact, all-neutral rooms can be super chic and glamorous. This room uses a combination of elements to create the effect. Applied molding on the walls, button tufting on the sofa, and the use of reflective surfaces such as glass, mirror, chrome, and silver all combine to create a luxurious atmosphere. Just because a room has a neutral color palette doesn’t mean it can’t have a little sparkle!
