Neutral is a colour palette that always looks neat, elegant, and understated. But, what if someone feels that’s too boring or dull for them? Well, there are certainly a lot of ways to make such a theme as interesting as possible, and below we’ve listed a few of them. If you’re a fan of natural colours, you’ll definitely love them. Let’s take a look:
1. A solid variation of neutrals
There are many shades of neutral hues and one of the best ways to make such a theme interesting is to feature a mix and match of these in a single space. It’s the perfect way to add some visual dynamism within your spaces without breaking theme. If you’re looking for some inspiration, just take a look at this image. The use of different shades of brown, tan, taupe, etc. totally stand out.
2. A stand-out furniture piece
Having a single statement piece in the most bold neutral colour that you can manage is a great way to make your ambiance as interesting as possible. The couch makes the perfect translation of this idea. The trick is to make sure that it’s placed in the center and is visible from all parts of the room. This way, it can capture the essence of the theme while delivering an eye-catching aura.
3. Material accents
A great way to make your neutral homes fully interesting is to emulate interesting material accents. Of course they have to be used in moderation and have to seamlessly feel like a part of the space. The stainless steel chrome strips used in the media wall in this image are a great example. So are the vertical mullions used at the sides.
4. A high-contrast wall
Sometimes, you need to break the monotony of the neutral colour scheme and a bold accent wall is just the way to do so with flair. The trick is to keep the real estate of this wall as minimum as possible without reducing its impact. The electric blue feature wall in this image is an excellent example of such a venture.
5. Material diversity
Lastly, you can make your neutral themed homes as interesting as possible by playing with different neutral coloured materials. These include several shades of wood, laminates, floor tiles, and more. Just take a look at this image for inspiration.
