Are your neutrals fading into the background? Contrary to conventional belief, they don’t necessarily have to. Make a statement with your neutrals with these three contemporary ideas. 

 

Blue Is The New Beige 

Does beige upholstery put you to sleep? Us too. In that spirit we say: out with the beige and in with the … blue? A blue couch may seem daring at first blush, but considering that blue is one of the most prevalent colors in the world, we predict this sophisticated new neutral is here for the long haul.  

 

Green Is The New Grey  

It’s far from new news that we love green, whether it’s the color of the year or otherwise. Green also wears the “new neutral” title well, as it was nature’s neutral long before Pantone dubbed it so. Pair green with contrasting wood accents for a fresh look that’s will keep your spirits high over the gloomy winter months ahead.  

 

Black Is The New … Black 

In the past, you may have veered away from decorating with black for fear of making your space feel small and stuffy. In recent years, interior design trends seem to be encouraging homeowners to face their fears, with bold hues such as charcoal and Black Flame becoming major players in the interior and exterior paint game, via big names such as Pantone and Benjamin Moore. And low and behold, when used correctly, black and shades of black can do wonders for your space, lending communal rooms, such as the dining or living room, a sense of intimacy.
