How to make neutrals more interesting? Remember a neutral palette will make a small room look bigger, a dark room lighter and pretty much go with anything. However, if not used correctly neutral schemes can look bland and boring. Here’s a few simple tips to remember……..

  • Use complementary neutral tones together on wallpaper will create a quiet impression. This will allow you to add pattern and texture without the worry of it being overbearing.
  • Introducing natural wood in furniture adds detail, warmth and ensure the design does not look flat.

  • Add texture to walls using wallpaper mimicking concrete and natural finishes. Dress the walls with accents of natural finishes which vary enormously, and their imperfections only add to their simple beauty.

  • Define with black accents adding structure and a statement without clashing or overpowering the room.

  • Add a feature wall in a darker shade this will ensure the room doesn’t look washed out. Avoid playing safe as a bland room lacks character and interest.
