Neutral Colors

Decorating with neutral colors offers a multitude of ways to add personality to your rooms, proving that neutral decor is anything but dull. Soft hues, such as beige, khaki, and rain-cloud gray, create a calming atmosphere, while the contrast of a black-and-white color scheme introduces drama and flair. Go bold with splashes of rich neutrals, such as chocolate brown or slate gray, or go sleek and subtle with tone-on-tone white. Learn how to use furniture, accessories, and design principles to achieve a gorgeous look using neutral colors, whether you're decorating your bedroom, living room, dining room, bathroom, or kitchen. Introducing pattern and texture, via fabrics, wood grains, window treatments, tile, wall coverings, accessories, and more, will also make your neutral room stand out. Adding the right lighting will give dimension to the neutral hues in your spaces. Plus, get inspired by dozens of different neutral color schemes, and get tips on how to put together your own neutral palette.
