If you thought you had to go bold with your interior colour scheme to make a statement, think again! Paring back your colour palette to a nice blend of neutral colours for home decor and textures will help you create a space that is anything but boring. Bright trends may come and go, but neutral is forever. So, to help you refresh your home, we’ve prepared a list of ways you can incorporate neutral tones into your space for a timeless interior aesthetic.
A balanced bedroom
The bedroom is the ideal place to explore a more restrained colour combo. Natural materials like wood and wool add a warmth to the space that will lend itself to a good night sleep. A whitewashed country style bed from Snooze would work perfectly alongside some crisp white bedding and a mountain of throw cushions from Adairs. Frame your bed with a wool shag rug for an elegant finish or a jute rug for something a little more relaxed.
When it comes to wall colours, anything goes! From grey and white to beige or slate, this neutral home colour palette will complement any and all décor. Layer different hues of the same colour, like a darker toned grey feature wall and a lighter version of the same colour on the other walls in your home, for a sophisticated finish. Once you’ve layered your colours, decorate your gallery wall with wall art in tonal frames from Frame Today to really make your new feature wall eye-catching.
When it comes to styling your home, neutral colour home décor always works. Use woven baskets for storage or bring that basket style into your lighting choices with dome basket pendants. Freedom has an amazing selection of woven lighting and décor pieces that add a light touch of texture to every neutral-coloured home. Plants really get the chance to pop when placed in a neutral space as well, so put a few in the corners of your space, but make sure to grab a few neutral plant pots from TK Maxx or Adairs to really keep your aesthetic consistent.
Regardless of whether you have a tiny, combined living space or multiple rooms to spread out in, a neutral home colour palette will work wonders for the flow for your home. Danish mid-century-inspired furniture works well with this palette, but for something a little different, why not try pieces with an eclectic Californian influence? Think cacti, tan leather, lots of layers and one-of-a-kind vintage finds. It’s a look that is inviting and relaxing without trying too hard and Nick Scali’s selection of tan leather furniture would be the perfect way to inject a bit of California cool into your neutral home.
If you’re wanting to elevate your space and make it look luxe without too much effort, then opting for neutral colours for home styling is definitely the best way to go.
