Tips for decorating with a neutral palette

While colorful rooms will always be preferred by some homeowners, there are also those who find calm and serenity in a clean, simple palette of neutrals. At Knox and Panoply, you’ll find plenty of furnishings and accessories in white, ivory, beige and taupe tones. With the right touch, a neutral decor can be quite soothing and sophisticated. This neutral lamp from East Enterprises and distressed finish round table are just two of the neutral pieces we’ve had in our showrooms recently.

What are some tips for decorating with neutrals?

• Use different shades of the same neutral to add depth to your decor.

• A neutral palette in a simple, comforting pattern is one way to bring a restful ambience to the bedroom. Florals and ginghams are just two of the patterns available in a variety of neutral colorways.

• Add interest to a neutral decor by focusing on texture. Upholstery fabrics and leathers, rugs and window treatments can all feature different textures.

• Finally, even when decorating with neutrals, a pop of color can bring a room to life. One great piece in a favorite color may be just what’s needed to unify the look of a neutral room.
