The Do’s & Don’ts Of Decorating With Neutrals


It can be difficult to decide on colors and styles that work best for your home. This can be especially true when we talk about decorating with neutral colors. It can be easy to overwhelm a room and/or leave it feeling cold and empty because of a decorating imbalance.  Luckily, we have gathered some of the most important do’s and don’ts when it comes to decorating with neutrals!

Do Start with a strong base neutral color for your room such as a grey, cream or white.  This will give you a blank canvas to work from and will help you see the room in a simple way before you start decorating.


Don’t Be afraid to experiment once you have a base color in place for your room. For a modern effect, consider creating an accent wall in a complimenting strong color to give your walls their own personality.

Do Try out different textures when you are bringing in furniture and comfortable seating. Try to find a common texture or pattern within the items you purchase, but make sure they will still stand out on their own up against your base color. Bringing in wood and natural wood items is a great way to accent this palette.


Don’t Stray away from bringing bold artwork or brightly colored decor pieces into your room. Not only will this help your neutral scheme stand out, it will also help showcase your custom style personality.


Do Be wary of overwhelming your room with all neutral colors, try to use only 2-3 colors out of the same family. It is easy to go overboard with one color scheme, so make sure to break things up by adding accent colors that mix together well.
