Classic, timeless and never boring. A neutral colour pallet will not only stand the test of time, but can create a luxury feel in any room. Variety is key when it comes to this popular but minimalist pallet, so get ready to embrace mix and match textures, seasonal motifs and contrasting tones with our top tips for making your neutral decor pop!

Texture: Keep your neutrals exciting by experimenting with different textures – think soft velvet throws and fur cushions, or luxury rugs on a polished wood floor. Mixed textures will inject variety into your decor for a simple theme that makes a huge impact.

Contrast: Mix warm shades with cools tones and pair glossy surfaces with muted accessories. Stunning, dark wood furniture often works well with neutral accessories, creating a beautifully luxurious contrast.

Seasonal: Neutral tones will go will almost anything, so don’t be afraid to spruce up your interiors for the season ahead. A minimalist theme provides the perfect foundation for periodic updates, so stay in style all year round with soft furnishings and seasonal accessories for a quick and effective home makeover.

Accents: If you’re feeling a bit fatigued by your neutral decor, then consider spicing up your space with an exciting accent colour. Keep it simple with new cushions and candles, or go bold with a brand new feature wall.

Contemporary: Neutral doesn’t mean 50 shades of beige, instead opt for colours that are rich and earthy for a modern, contemporary feel. Mineral tones, such as grey-greens or stone gray, are also very popular and will blend seamlessly with a variety of accent colours.
