Neutral colour hues include: black, white, gray, brown and tan/beige.
Here are a few things to remember when using a neutral colour scheme.
A neutral space can be very boring unless you inject some texture into it. Some examples - faux furs, woven fabrics, seagrass or wicker, ornamental woods or metals, rugs and throws. Shiny objects such as glass or stainless steel also add interest to the space with a bit of "bling".
Add some visual interest, change your decor to reflect your mood or compliment the seasons by adding colour with flowers, pillows, throws, or art. This is also a great way for people like myself - the "continuous decorator" - to change a space without a lot of time and expense.
