A major part of interior design is being able to display your personal style through your home décor. It is unfortunate, then, that neutral colors have gotten a bad reputation among certain circles as being “boring,” “builder grade,” and “generic.” Neutral colors are a critical element of any successful home interior for a number of reasons, not the least of which is their ability to support any style. Neutral colors combine to create versatile neutral color schemes that are an ideal palette for any space’s style. Neutrals are not only reliable for use in decorating, but they also play a critical role in providing visual relief, backdrops, and a calming atmosphere. We’ll take a look at each of these benefits of neutrals in this article.
Neutral colors are sometimes referred to as “earth tones,” meaning that the foundational colors found in and around the earth are neutral. It’s important to always consider, however, the undertone of any neutral color you’re wanting to use, whether or not it seems like an “earth tone” or not. Case-in-point, ivory might have pink or golden undertones, whereas white might be more yellow or even blue. Recognize these undertones as you choose the neutral palette for your space.
Neutral colors highlight texture. Similar to their ability to emphasize your personal design style, neutral colors also have the ability to effortlessly and seamlessly highlight texture. Texture is a vital element for creating a warm, welcoming, and comfortable interior design. Think of soft pillows, touchable cushions, cozy area rugs. All of these elements combine to create a really friendly space.
