Neutrals are anything but boring – if you are under that conception, we’re here to prove you wrong. A neutral palette doesn’t mean you have to stick to all white everything. And if your room tends to receive great natural light exposure, those neutrals will pop even more. Think cream, beige, grey, black and every simple shade in between. These colors can be warm and inviting, and especially so if you find that one, indispensable piece to decorate around. Follow this guide to be a few steps closer to creating your perfect neutral oasis.
Don’t let your room fall flat, add texture.
Neutral without texture is plain boring – adding layers is a must to create a more approachable and inviting space. This is one of the most important elements when decorating within a neutral color palette because it turns any room from stuffy to approachable. Texture also gives dimension so the room doesn’t fall flat, and combining patterns is much more tasteful when applying neutral on neutral. Throw pillows and blankets like this one from T.J. MAXX are easy to, no pun intended, throw on your statement pieces while still staying within budget.

Be pitch-perfect – with your wood tone, that is.
When you look around most homes, the main element is wood, from larger pieces like family dining room tables or smaller ones like accent frames on the shelves. However, it is easy to forget that various tones of wood give you a chance to lighten up a room but retain consistent elements. Accents from lighter to darker can immediately add warmth and character to any space and will never go out of style. This bench from KIRKLAND’S is less than $200 and a perfect representation that wood can be cozy and inviting.
