5 Neutral Rooms You Can Recreate At Home
Beige, tan, white and light gray—these photos prove subdued tones are anything but boring
When it comes to paint, decor or accessories, a lot of homeowners like to go for neutrals or a variation of toned-down hues and we can't say we're surprised. Aside from not having to go through the trouble of matching colors, there are a lot of other elements to play with at your disposal—textures, contrasts and patterns to name a few. If you've grown tired of brights or you just find yourself drawn to earthy tones, here are some ideas you can experiment with:
You can't go wrong with a combination of white and wood—it's not that hard to achieve, it's timeless and it's easy on the eyes. For a symmetrical display, try sticking to white for the big ticket items while adding the touches of wood through smaller pieces (as seen in photo.)
Another no-fail combination is khaki and wood—mixing cool and warm tones together makes the perfect color palette for a relaxing space. If you're willing to go the extra mile, a touch of navy through pillows adds a little bit of depth to the room, too.
If you get the right shade of pale yellow, it can also be considered neutral. Pair with sheer fabrics and cream accessories for the perfect summer-inspired space.
If you are set on adding a pop of color but don't want to do it through decor or painting the walls—you can do it through plants. These green wonders aren't just aesthetically pleasing—they can help keep the home a healthy haven, too.
For those who would like to go for a slightly monochromatic look, varying tones of brown work, too. If you'd like to add a focal point, consider adding a single black piece to draw the eye to the center of the space.
