Things To Remember When Using Neutral Home Décor
  • Opening Intro -

    Neutral home décor offers a sleek style that beautifully celebrates understated class and minimalism.

    That said, it's a tough look to pull off if you don't know where to start.

    After all, flat beiges and off-whites don't do much for a room independently.


However, when you know how to properly incorporate textures, accents, and intriguing silhouettes, the neutral home is one of accentuated elegance. Delve into some key elements of this interior trend and give your rooms the chic and subtle pop they deserve.

Add Variety With Textures and Wood Tones

Textures and wood tones are two essential things to remember when using neutral home décor. Neutral style requires depth and complexity to become something breathtaking.

So pick out a handful of your favorite wood tones and use them as a baseline for how you’ll decorate your space. It helps to include a healthy mix of dark, medium, and light colors in your pallet.

This way, you have plenty of variety with colors that naturally fit together. Perhaps some beige throw pillows with a light lace pattern would be ideal. Or maybe a plushy area would do the trick.

Either way, using colors and textures will give you that dynamic, neutral look you’re after. This is especially true if you want to achieve a mellow, minimalist home design that doesn’t compromise style.

Mix Neutral Shades

How you plan to incorporate neutral colors into prominent features like walls, window shutters, and lighting is also a crucial thing to remember when using neutral home décor. Think of these more notable aspects of your space as the foundation for the look you’re trying to create.

For instance, you might decide to make all your walls a crisp white. Then, bring in a creamy-beige sofa, wood shelving, and shutters to create some warmth. Follow that up with a toffee area rug and some throw pillows to match, and you have the foundation for a genuinely captivating pallet of neutral colors.

Having this foundation will help you understand how to incorporate minor details, like accents and artwork, that bring a room to life.

Create Interest With Black Accents

A touch of black is always a welcome addition to décor design, regardless of the style you’re going for. It adds depth and dimension to any space. Plus, it draws the eye, especially in a neutral-colored room.

Imagine walking into a fresh, warm room teeming with beautiful beiges with an all-black fireplace sitting front and center. That’s a pretty elegant and exciting visual. If you’re styling your kitchen, you can get the same effect by refacing or painting your cabinetry with darker shades.

Use Shapes and Silhouettes

When working with a neutral pallet, you must do everything you can to create visual intrigue. Otherwise, your space will continue to feel one-note.

Sure, black accents and textures will play their role. But if you want to up the ante and give your décor an edge, use shapes and silhouettes to spice things up.

For instance, a uniquely shaped coffee table or eclectically sculpted artwork could add a lot of interest to your décor landscape. You don’t have to have a multitude of original artwork and designer furnishing to accomplish this, either.

Two or three unique pieces can work wonders for a space.
