Although the interior design trends are headed toward bolder, more vibrant colors, neutral greys and tans are always in style. Neutral doesn’t necessarily mean boring: here are three different ways to make a room with less vibrant colors still have a bold impact.
1. Dynamic Lighting
Although rooms with neutral colors can be warm and inviting, it can also end up being boring and dull. To prevent this from happening, look toward dynamic light fixtures. Avant-garde light fixtures like the chandeliers in this space offer a bright and eye-catching design. The additional brass fixtures diversify the textures in the space. Although almost all of the colors are neutral, the design of the room is anything but dull.
Don’t count out natural lighting, however. Bright sunshine can bring the neutral colors to life. The high glass doors allow for the natural light to shine through, and create a more lively and vibrant room in the process.
2. Contrast of Colors
The trick with designing rooms with neutral colors is a variation of those hues. Too much of one shade can make the entire space blend together, creating a boring look. Different shades of the same tones, however, can create a more vibrant style while also keeping a calm and comfortable atmosphere.
3. Varied Textures
To allow more variation in a space without getting too busy with the colors, look to diversifying the textures. Include different fabrics, tiles, stones, wood and more to add a more attractive style. The leather couch, painted mural on the wall and glossy wooden floors add variation to this space. But no matter which are used, the diversity of the textures will always give the room a beautiful, elegant design.
