No matter how much interior design changes throughout the years, one constant remains in that neutrals are always in style. Click through for our neutral designs and ideas to incorporate these reliable hues into your home.
Neutral colors have an instantly calming effect and work well in nearly any room. Think about when you step into an all white bathroom or master bedroom filled with shades of tan and cream. Soothing, right? With so much going on in our lives, relaxing in a room of minimal colors is a necessary retreat.
While most consider white, black, grey, and tan/brown family of colors to represent neutrals, others believe shades of blue or the palest pink also work. Some hold firm that metallic colors such as gold, silver, or bronze are neutrals, too. Whatever you decide to qualify as a neutral shade is ultimately up to you.
The biggest misconception among neutral interior design isn’t which shades belong so much as that it’s boring. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Neutral interior design makes putting an entire home together easy and cohesive.
Sticking with neutrals means you can incorporate large, colorful artwork or captivating photography. Darker neutrals like browns and blacks can be really helpful when living with kids, as stains and messes are easier to clean up and hide.
Neutrals also allow for endless pattern opportunities in the form of accent walls, decor, bedding, and area rugs. Whatever pop of color or pattern is used will truly stand out instead of just being one more busy thing in a house full of colors.
Whether inside or on exteriors, in the kitchen or guest room, used on walls or for furniture, or in a starter home or multi-generational house, neutrals work. If you’re feeling intimidated by working with neutral shades, or simply want a whole home makeover to allow for a more peaceful living environment, we at HHC Living can take all the guesswork out of it. Give us a call today and you’ll be one step closer to the house of your dreams.
