The neutral colour palette is notorious for being comprised of gentle, earthy and soft colours that are very pleasing to the eye. But using such understated colours can make a space look very subtle and boring in the long run, which is why you always have to put in some additional contrast if you want to make them look interesting. So here are a few simple tricks on how you can add a touch of bold to your neutral palette:
1. Lighting accents
If you want to emulate some dramatic lighting effects to enhance the mood of your neutral themed interior designs, then going for sheer curtains is a nice option. During the day, they can help diffuse the amount of natural light and create a soft, opaque background for your interior design. During the night, they can be used as a beautiful screening measure.
2. Lattice-work accents
Using door and window frames along with laser-cut screens to introduce bold accents in your neutral interior designs is also an excellent option. Aluminum door/window frames in stand-out colours can complement your understated colour schemes while bold designs from screens can introduce an interesting stylistic aspect!
3. Furniture accents
Using furniture to introduce a bold statement in otherwise neutral interior designs is also a great venture. You can use sofas, coffee tables and sideboards in different styles and materials to create a contrasting effect with the rest of the colour scheme. You can use wooden accents, or upholstery in unique materials to emulate this technique.
4. Accessory accents
Aside from furniture, using decoration pieces and accessories is also a good way to bring a little bit of contrast in your neutral themed interior designs. You can even choose bright colours like fresh greens or reds or even yellow in the form of small accessories to create an interesting visual dynamic in your neutral themed interior designs.
5. In-built carpentry accents
In-built carpentry is one of the best ways to introduce some bold accents in your interior designs. You can use the finishes of your carpentry to complement and contrast with the rest of the ambiance. It can be as large or as minimal as you want it to be.
