No fuss neutrals are words to live by! Quite simply put, neutral means ‘without colour’ in the interior design world, encompassing shades of white, beige, ivory, taupe, grey and black. When looking to redesign your home, we must admit, they make the best focal point with minimal fuss!
This year, we’re seeing a shift away from cool grey tones with an emphasis on yellow based neutrals such as oatmeal, beige and natural buff. This comeback makes for a perfect base colour to build upon, setting the tone for a soft, peaceful and uncluttered aesthetic.
If you're a little unsure of how you’re going to work with muted shades - have no worries! To keep your space interesting, think texture, contrast and even more texture. You can easily create something special through layers of warm neutrals, contrasting finishes, and hints of your favourite cool colours!
One of our favourite aspects of warm neutrals include the use of wood tones, but it’s important to never go too matchy-matchy. In order to maintain depth and complexity in your neutral space, embrace varied wood tones and distressed texture. Going two-tone is a great option for maintaining the classic elegance of white while enjoying the natural charm of warm wood. This creates undeniable visual interest and depth to your space!
When your palette is pared down to embrace a more neutral side, something has to provide the wow factor. This is where your accents come into play, and don’t be afraid of taking some risks! Texture, interesting shapes and striking silhouettes is all you really need. Try mixing unique neutral pieces with hints of your favourite bold colours to give your space some much deserved pizzazz.
