Using neutrals in your space is a great way to create a calm and peaceful environment, while being stylish and modern at the same time. I think a lot of people must feel like they don’t know where to start when it comes to incorporating this lighter palette into their home. But it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

White is not boring
White is certainly not dull when it comes to interior design. First of all, there are all different hues so definitely look into these options before starting. Second, having white walls can really make or break a room, but it all depends on the other colors in the space as well. Think of white as a color that blends with everything else around it, so it depends on that support to really shine.

Playing up textures
When you truly want to design a space with neutrals, and I mean whites and creams, considering texture is a huge factor. Each will bring a special characteristic to the room and help evoke a feeling, which will really bring the whole design to a new level.

That seamless feel
In the end you want a space that is warm and inviting, so make sure you keep the hues at a minimum. Having 10 different whites fight the spotlight isn’t cool. And I can guarantee the design will really look off. Decide on a few and go from there. You want them to blend but stand out on their own so stay within the same tone. Otherwise, you will have one that doesn’t seem to fit the puzzle.
