Using a neutral colour scheme inside your home is a surefire way to add depth and sophistication to your spaces. And best of all, the theme only grows richer with tasteful styling and furnishing. Neutrals are also a great way to refresh your space seasonally, when you’re looking for a change of pace without breaking the budget.
A Classic Comeback
Craft a classic look pairing neutrals in tonal combinations or contrast with soft whites. Rich neutrals can add depth and mood to traditional spaces and lighter neutrals can create a comforting, friendly home full of character.
The simplicity of a neutral hue is the base to contemporary looks from Scandinavian to minimal and modern. A single neutral shade works well in open plan living, creating an understated neutral backdrop for your furniture and other finishes.
Create texture and interest throughout your exterior spaces by layering neutral hues. Taking a palette inspired by nature, create a base tonal colour scheme that is further complemented by natural textures like timber and stone.
A Timeless Revival
From soft milky beige to taupe and tan, neutral colours work beautifully with timber, leadlight details and traditional architectural features. Highlight trims with lighter or darker harmonious colours to create a timeless exterior look.
