The perfect neutrals, off-whites, shades of gray, creamy pale tones, the ultimate crème de la crème. you’ve might of heard it all in the design world. And truly let me tell you it’s these beautiful '‘neutrals” in which most people yearn to live. It’s the sense of calmness that this color evokes. I love the ability to layer shades of one color successfully, finishing with a flourish of accent color that highlights the overall scheme.
The key to creating a successful perfect neutral room scheme is using the correct accent color or colors, in just the right amount and combination. Accent colors are used to provide visual interest, so they need to catch the eye in a delightful way, without overpowering the overall scheme. Color accents can be introduced in a variety of different ways, in plain colors or pattern, through display of ceramics, decorative objects, vases, flowers, rugs, throws, and furniture.
I’ve attached some of my favorite neutral rooms that I’ve styled and am enjoying right now. I love to get my hands on organic earthly textures such as; wood, cotton, straw, rock, stone, flowers, paper, linen, cotton. These creamy, buttery colors are the warmest and mellowest when displayed together.
