Thankful Tuesday, everyone! How are you all doing this week? Even if it’s still pretty chilly over here in West Virginia, I hope all of you are pumped for the work week now that spring is right around the corner! Anyway today I thought I’d share with you guys another interesting home decor tip from BHG.com regarding neutral colors.
Neutrals might be the last colors a person would consider when it comes to decorating, but don’t underestimate this palette! Here are some tips and examples that you might draw inspiration from if you are thinking of changing up the look of your home.
1. Blank Canvas
All painters begin with a blank canvas, and white may be the most basic–but it is also the easiest color to start with. It literally goes with anything. There are many accents of primary colors in the room above, but they all go together. Time and again I’ve mentioned in my previous interior design posts: neutral colors act as the calming agent when it comes to decor. Not to mention if you feel like changing the colors again, you don’t have to worry about what goes well with what as long as white is your main backdrop.
2. Pattern at Play
More than just the colors, neutrals make it easier to add patterns to your designs. While beige or white are the most common neutral shades, gray is also becoming a popular choice for many designers. In the room above, the gray walls provide the ideal backdrop for patterns that create life and texture in this simple but classy room.
3. Design Utopia
Arguably the best thing about neutrals is that they are limitless. Because they go well with anything, you can change the mood or theme of your room in an instant. The above picture mixes whites with blues, giving it a calming, aquatic theme. Neutrals also make a room look brighter, cleaner, and spacier. Who doesn’t want to have all those attributes in their home?

Have a great week, everyone!
