You must have heard about neutral color palettes, and their popularity in fashion and home decor. Neutral color palettes are a good base while giving your home a paint make-over for a classy, soothing, elegant ambiance. Though their meaning is ‘no color’, technically they do have some color. The definition of neutral colors says they are colors that are very light and not overly bright. These colors do not catch your eye, but rather blend into the background. White, beige, tan, brown, gray, taupe, and black are considered neutral. These colors appear to be very light and work great as background colors. In home decor, such colors have great importance since they serve to highlight the brighter and more vibrant colors. The correct neutral color palettes go with everything, giving a beautiful canvas to work upon, making it possible to create extremely chic, versatile rooms. They can be spruced up with colorful accessories and are easy to match with furniture.
Subtle, neutral color palettes provide an excellent backdrop for walls and ceilings. White is the perfect backdrop for bold artwork and contemporary furniture. Colors look great against a background of white. Even a tinge of color will make a difference in the overall look. To give your home a warm, comfortable rustic feel, use dark neutral shades of brown, rust and black. While opting for browns and greens, choose a lighter or softer shade of these colors that have a touch of earth tone in them, for instance a more faded or antique olive green.
