Layer with the same color, but in different tones.
Don’t give yourself a headache trying to find the same exact color you used to paint your wall for the bed sheets, rug, and toss pillows. Stay in the same color, but explore with different tones. The variety will turn the boring ol’ beige, into an elegant and stylish design.
Wood furniture adds character and creates depth to a neutral color palette.
You can’t go wrong pairing wood furniture with your neutral colors. The natural characteristics of wood automatically adds depth and gives the right amount of contrast without skewing the neutral tone of the space.
Invest in furniture pieces that will last longer.
If not done correctly, a neutral color palette can easily turn out boring and dull. Investing in well-made furniture enhances the look and feel of a neutral palette. You don’t need to empty out your bank account, but investing in one or two pieces can go a long way.
