Whether you are remodelling a space in your home or a new office, the first thing to consider is your paint colour and tone.

Choosing the right paint colour sets the tone for the space. Where do you start on your colour wheel?

As an interior designer, I look at different neutral color palettes to enhance the space by using lighting to create focal points and elevate the design. What are the most popular neutral colours?

Accessorize with Colour :

A neutral color paint gives you a blank canvas for creativity and allows you to add color in decor and accessories.

This creates depth when decorating a space, allows you to create focal points in the room with bold accessories and gives you more flexibility and options with a design.

A good quality paint in a neutral tone also adds to the feeling of being lavish in a room or space. Creamy tones of paint with pops of color in black and accessories in cognac leather
create a modern and luxurious feel. Using neutral palette cushions mixed with these color tones gives the overall feel of the space more dimension and texture.

Using a neutral tone rug to mimic the paint color will create a tranquil atmosphere and yet give the space some warmth.

Flexibility with Design :

As the seasons change and your desire to decorate a neutral paint colour allows you to make those changes easily. A few minor changes with art and cushions and decor now gives you
a brand new look without breaking the budget. It also allows you to go bold or subtle whatever your style is. It allows you to write the narrative with design and acts as a tranquil backdrop to any space. Bringing in some new art and matching cushions and throws allows a fresh design in your space. Adding drapes in the room in a neutral tone as well will add warmth and texture to the space.

Brighten Up the Space :

If you are looking to brighten up a room or space and make it look more spacious consider using a neutral paint color. Light colors with the appropriate lighting will create that look and feel of a more spacious home or office.

It also allows you to play with different lighting options to create more dimensions in the space. Colors like grey and cream are great options when trying to achieve this. Neutral colors are timeless and they allow you to adapt easily to changes in trend as decorating trends change.
