Neutral but Not Nondescript: The ABCs of decorating with neutrals

March 22, 2018

As a company that makes soft furnishings and deals with a gamut of colors every single day, we have our own favorites. If you have been following our work, you’d know that we have the softest of soft spot for neutral colors.


We love the tranquility and unassuming vibe that neutrals ooze. They also make the perfect visual break in interiors and are used to throw prominent pieces, patterns, colors, furniture, etc. to sharp relief. Neutral colors are synonymous with minimalistic set-up owing to their subtle, pared-down appeal. We can go on and on about neutral colors without batting an eyelid but we’d more than like to show you how you can decorate your interiors with them.


The Undecorated Look

It’s true that we are fortunate to work with a diverse clientele which enables us to widen our understanding of design and the unique thought processes that lead our clients’ to the design schemes they choose for their spaces. One trend that we’ve been observing since the beginning of this year is the growing preference of our clients to decorate their interiors in a way that doesn’t scream ‘too worked upon’ or strain for a grand effect, in other words, the ‘undecorated’ look. If you want your furniture or an architectural detail of your space to be the cynosure of all eyes then a simple neutral color palette will aptly support your creative vision.


Working with a versatile neutral

If you don’t want to introduce a bright pop but at the same time don’t want your space to look wanting of a color, then working around one versatile neutral will serve the purpose to the T. We love how olive anchors the living room. It ties and pulls off other colors like beige, off white, and gray seamlessly. A versatile neutral color will work up understated elegance and interest in interiors.


Bringing in subtle patterns and textures

Going neutral doesn’t mean you can’t play with patterns and textures. Soft furnishings featuring delicate embroideries or prints will add subtle charm and quiet drama to the mix thereby salvaging things from getting too tame or boring. This bedroom of a client has all the things that we personally love – a neutral color palette with subtle metallic tones and luscious embroidery to add textural depth and richness to the room.


Harnessing the power of white

This is our perennial favorite! White is a true neutral – you can make it look whatever your heart desires – from serene to glamorous to sophisticated; it’s one color that allows for easy integration of diverse elements and facilitates cohesion. Look at the dining room here, the white upholstered dining chairs against the neutral curtains lend a crisp, modern, and airy feel to it.


Neutrals are easy to work around with and can transform any space into a space of serenity. If you are looking for timelessly chic and classic neutral soft furnishings to accessorize your home, connect with us today!
