Neutral colors (such as
white, taupe and beige) give you a beautiful canvas to
work upon when it comes to home décor. Limited use of
colors and patterns help you to create a sophisticated
environment along with interesting focal points in
rooms, garden and living area. Natural fibers are
available in these colors too and have quite different
textures for experimenting.
The variety of texture in
neutral natural colors infuses peace and calm in the
home environment. Here are some tips for home décor
in neutral colors:
Simple peaceful homes mostly use off-white or
beige colored furniture.
To create a warm comforting rustic look, use
dark neutral colors such as shades of brown, rust and black.
Natural tones are the strong points of a
neutral color scheme. Artificial tints can be disturbing to
the overall effect.
Simple yet sleek homes prefer to use single,
multi-purpose and versatile item rather than many small
Natural fibers in neutral colors can add
texture and character to home in the form of curtains, window
draperies, slipcovers and pillows.
Use simple and few accessories that are
chosen prudently and in moderation.
If you are sick of an item that is no more
useful to you, dump it boldly. Clutter makes home look messy.
Ivory, black and gray also come under the
heading of neutral colors but be sure to understand their
undertones while choosing their combinations. These undertones
of colors can be pink, tan, gold, yellow, blue or even peach.
Remember, red is a warm color that attracts
attention and represents energy, passion and healing. It can
be used as accents to add instant life to a dull neutral
colored home decor.
