Neutral decor and primarily beige-based interior design has become incredibly popular over the years. Beige is one of my favorite colors because it’s so calming and, well, neutral! It doesn’t scream for attention and it fits in with most pieces of furniture and decorative accents.
What is Considered Neutral?
Neutral colors are colors that are not typically found on the color wheel. Colors like beige, ivory, cream, off-white, caramel, brown, white, gray, and black are generally considered to be “neutral” though, for the purpose of this article, we’ll focus on my favorite: beige and white!
Neutral Decor Ideas
Pretty much every piece of furniture you need for your home can be purchased in neutral colors. It’s just a matter of finding the right style and form. Personally, I love neutral furniture in a really basic, mid-century, minimalist form. It helps create a pleasant, relaxed, and casual yet chic atmosphere in a home.
Because neutral colors can easily blend in, it’s important to consider texture and patterns when picking out your neutral decor accents. This is the key to ensuring that neutral decor isn’t boring or uninteresting! Secondly, you want to use many different neutral shades. You could have white, beige, and dark brown in one room to make sure there is a lot of contrast between pieces.
