How to work with two-toned neutral colour schemes

The neutral palette is actually comprised of a lot of colours, including but not limited to brown, taupe, beige, tan, greys, and more. So, when you have such a vast palette to work with, it can be hard to create a visually balance space. If you’re struggling with this choice, then why not go for a two-toned neutral hued scheme? Let’s take a look at how you can do it:

 

1. Between furniture and backdrop

The furniture and backdrop represent two of the most important parts of any interior design. You can use these two aspects to implement your two-toned neutral colour scheme. For example, if the furniture is a certain shade of grey, the backdrop can be a certain shade of cream. You can even intersperse it with texture to get a more qualitative look in your spaces.

 

2. Choosing the best tones

When you have just two hues to work with, it can be especially challenging to create an interesting space. But even harder than that is locking down the two colours that you’ll be working with in the first place. The trick is to create a personal mood board and keep experimenting with what works best until you feel like you’ve got it. Or you can trust your designer’s instinct and get their expert advice.

 

3. If you want high-contrast

Yes, it’s definitely possible to get a high-contrast aesthetic even when you’re working with just a two-toned neutral hued palette. You simply have to select a darker hue of one of the shades. Brown is usually the best option for this purpose, because you can execute it in various textures of wood to get the right look.

 

4. Experimenting with materials

Two-toned neutral colour schemes are best for experimenting with different materials. Since you’ve already gotten the colours down pat, you can focus on making the ambiance more attractive by choosing the right materials. The floor, walls, window treatments, and furniture all need to feature the best material textures for a truly interesting look.

 

5. Or you can be simple

Two-toned neutral colour schemes are the best when you’re a minimalist at heart. You don’t even have to experiment with materials in this case. Just be cohesive with your visual balance to get the right effect.
