Nuanced Neutrals

Comfort is an essential part of everyday life in the home, even more so with the pandemic. As we continue to spend more time at home, we’re seeing design trends  reflect a warm neutral color palette that inspires a sense of comfort and well-being while encouraging rest and relaxation. Whether you opt for classic beige or modern grey, one thing’s for sure: 2021 is all about soothing spaces.



Neutrals Don’t Have to Be Boring

Forget the old cliches of clinical white and drab taupe. Today’s neutrals are sleeker and more sophisticated than ever before, thanks to the variety of shades and textures that add dimension to a space. Neutrals are also extremely versatile, making a space more dynamic by mixing warm and cool neutral tones.

To create a sanctuary that doesn’t feel stark, start by layering different textures in neutral tones. The more texture you add, the more depth and interest will be added to your space.

Besides acting as an anchor to your design, neutrals can also play with the natural light of a room, subtly shifting hues at different times of the day when the light changes, adding a new perspective on your space.
