3 Ways to Embrace Neutrals
It’s all about the style you bring into the room. Ryan and his design experts will work with you to create a space that truly expresses your style.
1. Like a little black dress, neutrals are timeless.
Neutrals endure with a classic appeal that stands the test of time as other color trends come and go. The soothing palette can shift with the seasons and stay feeling fresh and inviting. “This holiday season, try switching your cushions to soft reds and muted greens,” Ryan says. “You could also use baby blues, whites, silvers, or layer various shades of a single color.”
2. Neutrals make the details pop.
When decorating with neutrals, bring in as much texture as possible. Texture creates interest and layers. Selecting different textures in fabrics also adds depth and visual interest even if every piece is a neutral tone. Ryan says this allows the lines of your furniture and architectural details to be seen and appreciated.
The easiest way to add color is with cushions or throws, and lampshades or accessory pieces like footstools or side tables. What you choose largely depends on how warm your room feels already. “If the space needs cooling down,” Ryan says, “coordinate neutrals with pale blues and greens; if it needs a little warmth, spice shades work beautifully.”
Keep in mind, changes don’t have to happen all at once. That’s the beauty of decorating with neutrals. They go with everything.
