Neutral Color Interior Designs And Choosing Soft Neutral Rugs
There is something to be said about the timeless looks of a neutral palette in interior design. That is why neutral rugs are so popular.
If I could, I would live in colonial Spanish castle full of wrought iron and rich velvety red curtains. However, this post pays homage to the neutral looks that interior designers have stuck by and continue to do so in order to create looks that are simple, clean, and withstand the test of time.
Yes, modern designers are all about creating spaces that add pops of color ranging from vibrant teals to shocking yellows, but palettes of tans, beige, and browns are still the rage for the social elite. Having visited some of the most prestigious homes in New York City, I was drawn to these simplistic monochromatic designs.
The neutral palette is undoubtedly inviting and adds a classic chic quality to home design. Where color lacks, detail thrives. That attention to detail is what designers and homeowners seek out in creating looks that work today and will carry on into the future.
Class, especially for the elite, is best showcased in style and design that does not flaunt but rather, shows precision and keen attention. The foundation of a neutral palette makes a home look elegant, yet effortless.
Homeowners who lean towards this design spectrum know that their looks are classic and timeless. Thus, the neutral palette is hot and here to stay. Not to mention, with a neutral palette, one can seriously spice up a room with just a subtle pop of modernity in color or decor.
Using Neutral Rugs To Create Vibrant Or Chic Neutral Color Interior Designs
When it comes to interior design, there is no “one size fits all” approach. Some prefer their spaces to include calming neutral tones, which are perfect for creating a chic sense of tranquility, while others prefer dramatic, colorful spaces that are vibrant and inspiring.
Both colorful and neutral approaches have incredible impact. In addition, both approaches can be used in traditional or more contemporary home designs.
Decorating Neutral Rooms With Neutral Rugs
Use large neutral-toned antique Oriental carpets from Persia and India to create an elegant feel. Vintage Moroccan carpets in smaller sizes are a great way to add neutral textures and details to your area. Use multiple small rugs to create a unique layering effect!
Subtle tone differences in neutral colors are a great way to add interest to a neutral interior. Neutral rooms tend to feel calm, tranquil, and relaxing.
Neutral Rugs To Balance Vibrant Colorful Rooms
Antique rugs from China and Persia, which have bold patterns and vibrant colors, are a great way to add depth and dimension to your home. Cheerful vintage Scandinavian rugs add a happy and bright touch to any space!
Limiting your accessories to one color family (blues, reds, etc.) helps your space feel cohesive. Colorful rooms tend to evoke feelings of luxuriousness, opulence, and energy.
