Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue. A grey blue that is a soft by darkened historic shade of blue. It is because of its deep undertones (keeping in mind that tones and shades refer to adding grey/black to a color, while tint is added white) that the blue feels so aged and classically timeless. It pairs beautifully with popular modern greys and creates a deep, cozy ambiance, yet the color provides a lovely, stable background against which vibrant accent colors can pop. Similarly, Restoration Hardware’s Dusk is a muted, sophisticated grey-blue that leans just slightly heavier toward the blue spectrum than other grey blues. The shade is soft enough that it can work almost as a neutral. Almost. But when paired with other neutrals, the color becomes a lovely harmonious thread that brings everything together. It is fresh without feeling zesty, delightful without overdoing.
Before we dive too deeply into the merits of using neutral colors in your interior decorating, let’s briefly review what neutral colors are. Technically, in the context of interior design, neutral means without color, although even neutrals have undertone that play a critical role in their successful use. Neutral colors are not typically found on the color wheel because they include shades of black, white, grey, beige, ivory, taupe, and brown.
How about repurposing a wooden pallet? That usually works…given how versatile these things are. You can turn a pallet into a support structure for planters and since you’re eco-friendly and all you could also repurpose some glass jars or some tin cans instead of using pots. You can hang them with wire, rings or you can come up with your own custom idea. Check out stylemepretty for reference.
