Interior Tips For Neutral Obsessed Homeowners

There is nothing wrong with being obsessed with neutral hues and having them be the main focus in the room instead of it simply being a contrast color. Doing so doesn’t mean you have to conform to neutral walls, boring décor and/or both instead it gives you the freedom to work with a large spectrum of colors that are easy on the eye and even easier to work with. Here are interior decorating tips for the neutral obsessed homeowners that will bring that classic beauty to your décor.

Create a Balance

We love the idea of mixing hues and texture to bring hue that may not seem to work as well together such as cool and darker tones. Pair them using a bold sofa, and in a daring seating arrangement to bring it full-circle.  Add in a rug to break down the color palette a tiny bit. 

Creating a balance is important in any décor. Especially when you are working with cool tones or earthy hues. As an alternative use both hues to create an even palette that is stimulating to the eye and beautiful to incorporate. Mix and match both hues for that perfect display that upgrades the area in a neutral manner.

Large Scale Art

Having an obsession with nudes does not mean you can’t include a nude palette as part of your wall art. Instead, it means you can get creative with your art and select pieces that have a neutral aesthetics that draws the eye in. If you are not keen on having one large statement piece consider having smaller artwork that has the same bold impact.

Large art pieces are excellent ways to break down the nude aspect of the room without the need of adding unnecessary color. You may want to add a large art piece with neutral hues that have a pop of color in a simple manner. The idea is to have the art piece be the main focus without using added color.

Let there be Light

Light fixtures are extremely important to any space, especially in a mostly neutral space. However, the light fixture you choose can brighten or even cast a shadow in the room. The key is working with a light fixture that is close in hue as the neutral shades you have already incorporated into your decor.

Sculpted lights are excellent accent figures that add beauty without adding color if you choose to go the natural route. However, if you choose to add color this could be an excellent way to do so. Simply add a bold light fixture that brings your entire décor together.

Add Accessories

The beauty of adding accessories to a mostly neutral setting is how personalized the area will feel almost instantly. If you want to keep an area mostly neutral consider having textured accessories that pack a punch themselves.

Adding accessories will add texture to the space. The key is working them in slowly with neutral hues that complement each other in a seamless manner. Think about adding bold patterns in a minimalist manner by incorporating unlikely objects in vignettes to bring your personality to the forefront of your décor.

Add Hues of Camel

Camel comes in numerous different hues which is great when you want to add the shade without having that stark heaviness a camel color can have in a mostly neutral space. Add hints of camel color in your decor for an essential twist that brights a brightening effect.

If you want to add color to your home without adding bright shades or patterns, camel is the perfect hue for you. The shade itself is a perfect elevated neutral that adds a brightening effect to the room in a simple manner. Consider having it become the main hue of the room for a put together appeal.

Pastel Bits

Adding pastel bits in the decor is the perfect way to add color in a less daring manner. Instead, of using bold hues that can create a large contrast in the decor use softer colors that have that pastel undertone. You may even want to consider adding pastel patterns for a perfectly rounded appeal. 

Neutrals can be considered a part of the pastel shade range due to their softness. However, if your ideal décor setting is a neutral space, adding a few bits of pastel throughout can make a huge difference in revitalizing the room without the need of integrating daring hues.

Statement Pieces

When you want to create a statement piece without using bold hues or patterns a neutral wallpaper is a way to go. A neutral wallpaper with a soft pattern adds that statement in a softer manner. Whether you use a colorful wallpaper or simple nude wallpaper having some sort of pattern will give your decor a soft charm.

Every room can make great use of having a few statement pieces. They not only expand the size of the room, but they bring a focal point. Do not be afraid of having a bright statement piece in a neutral room, the essential key is using darker, richer hues such as gem colors, and/or even rustic hues. These two shade ranges will bring a softer form of a statement.

Textured Walls

A textured wall can be numerous different things from a patterned wallpaper to an exposed brick wall. Whether you choose to use wallpaper to create that textured feel or you choose to have an exposed brick wall the texture will elevate the room and bring an elegant vibe.

In order to bring some sort of appeal that has an intricate touch a textured wall could be exactly your room needs. The texture from the wall will bring a different focal point to the area that is not as obvious, yet does pack that punch you want in a neutral space.

Shades of Blue

Shades of blue are perfect in any setting, especially in the kitchen. It has a grander effect when you are using different shades of blue in a neutral setting due to that hint of deniable color. 

Blue may not seem like a neutral that you may want to use, but using a diverse range of shades of blue will help break up the neutral hues. Additionally, it is a softer way of adding color, instead of using an all neutral space or incorporating daring colors.

Unique Touches

Adding a unique touch is perfect even in the kitchen space. Having an intricate glass tile wall in the kitchen is the perfect unique appeal the space might need. The key is keeping the rest of the decor simple

When it comes to neutral décor adding unique touches that brighten up the décor is very important, the ability to seamlessly add those unique pieces to create a personalized area regardless of the hues that are used. Consider having tidbits of daring pieces that bring your personality directly on display while allowing your décor to remain your main focus.
