Neutral décor is a time-honoured domestic go-to when attempting to solve many different interior design dilemmas at once. Not only does a muted or neutral colour scheme offer a simple, changeable and easily stylish aesthetic, but it also ensures there is still the chance to personalise and alter after the fact. 

Additionally, decorating with neutral hues provides a host of unique ways to add individuality to your rooms, demonstrating that neutral décor is anything but dull. If you are considering a neutral colour scheme, but require a few tips or tricks, read on below and update your home with confidence and style!

1. Gorgeous neutral timber tones

First up, we enter a timber home that oozes a welcoming and inviting aesthetic. The neutral wooden tones help inject a feeling of simplicity and an organic practicality, while the addition of white walls bring a cleanliness and modernity to the room. 

2. Scandinavian simplicity

Too much colour in one's bedroom can often present issues when sleeping. Ensure your space is neutral, serene and tranquil by sticking to a monochromatic or duochromatic colour scheme.

5. All-white, with a hint of colour

This all-white interior utilises a few bursts of bright colour to break up the monochromatic space. The warmth of the timber flooring is effortlessly cosy, while the white walls and ceiling are wonderfully sleek. 

6. Serene coastal vibes

Employ a coastal aesthetic in your home with the inclusion of neutral colours and plenty of whitewashed furniture. Here the sleeping quarters are truly welcoming, with peach cushions breaking up the muted colour palette. 

7. A neutral and welcoming interior

Next up, we enter a corridor and entryway that has a neutral palette, and embraces copper fixtures to impart an artistic ambience and air.

8. Pairing neutral hues with bold contrasts

As we spoke of earlier, the use of contrast within a neutral space is essential in creating an attention-grabbing and characterful room. 

In this design, the all-white aesthetic is broken up with a black table and chair as well as an inspiration board that can be changed regularly. 

9. A magical monochromatic bathroom

Coming to the end of our list we take a quick peek inside a majestic marble bathroom that utilises neutral grey hues to offer a feeling of 5-star spa luxury. 

10. Brightening up the neutral shade with plants

Last, but certainly not least, this neutral designed interior has one special and surprising inclusion. Symmetrical green walls coordinate with the impressive and welcoming palette, adding organic vibes and improving the overall softness of the space.
