Decorate with neutrals
Whether you are decorating for spring, or starting off in a new place, there's no denying that neutrals offer the perfect canvas for any style of decorating. Add a splash of bold colour for a modern look, keep it plain and simple for minimalist style, or work in earthy tones for a natural setting that works with contemporary, modern or minimalist.
We take a look at two decorated homes: A fresh white setting with the barest hint of colour, and a modern home that puts colour on display.
ABOVE and BELOW: Colour is personal. It's a way of expressing who you are and reflecting this in your home. Light grey walls and shades of white keep this living space airy and fresh, while white walls with pops of bold colour make a colourful statement in the living room below.
ABOVE and BELOW: With neutral walls you can bring in almost any colour or texture to add interest to a room. Organic or natural fabrics and accessories gravitate more towards country or rustic, while reflective and glossy finishes shine through in modern and contemporary rooms.
ABOVE and BELOW: Accessories make all the difference. Whatever your style, you are going to choose a decorating scheme that ties in with your unique personality. Accessories not only complete the look, they add the finishing touch to any room.
