How to Use Neutral Colors without Being Boring: A Room by Room Guide

Neutral colors are a good choice for home decor. They are versatile and pleasing to the eye. But if you do not carefully plan your interior design as a whole your wall paint color might turn out to be boring. Learn ways how to make neutrals classy and elegant without being boring.

Colors tend to have one of three primary behaviors: active, passive, and neutral. The word neutral, in fact, means impartial or unbiased. Because of this, the use of neutral colors in home decorating is a common and effective strategy.

For one thing, neutrals (think white, black, brown, cream, grey, and pretty much any muted earthy tone) can “go” with anything – that’s what makes them neutrals. This provides versatility in decorating over the years as trends and personal preferences change. Neutrals also tend to be colors that provide an excellent background to any other color, providing a solid foundation for decorating no matter what your style.

But sometimes this idea can be taken to an extreme in the neutral world. Entering a room that’s decorated in beige upon beige upon beige upon…wait, is that cream? Oh. Nope. Beige again…is both boring and aesthetically stagnating. In order to alleviate that risk, the following is a guide for decorating with neutrals for every room in your house while maintaining personality, life, charm, and style.
