Neutral interior palettes are always in fashion. The simplicity of this aesthetic also makes it easy to add a unique touch to your home.

As we move towards 2022, you’ll also find a variety of trends to incorporate into your neutral space. A top contender that works beautifully with muted tones includes Japandi – an east meets west vibe. In contrast, pops of colour and texture always win for added character.  

The beauty of neutral interior themes is the versatility they bring. You might feel at home in a traditional space with a tonal palette bringing extra warmth. In addition, bright neutrals steal the show in contemporary and minimalist settings. 

When adding colour to a room, think about how you want it to feel. Colour and mood are intrinsically linked and create a different ambience in the space. Adding colour doesn’t have to involve splashing paint on the walls either. There are many ways to experiment. So, let’s take a look at how to add colour to a room.

How to inject colour into a neutral room

1. Add soft tones

There’s often a misconception that adding colour to a room needs to involve bright hues. However, softer tones are perfect for a subtle yet chic pop against neutral décor. Our Florence range is an excellent example of this. Our truffle and sage shades are perfect colours to make a room feel warmer, while our navy blue furniture offers a sophisticated injection of colour. Alternatively, why not choose your own colour with our custom paint service? That way, you can tailor your furniture to suit your personal taste and décor.

2. Embrace Mother Nature in your home

There’s nothing better than soaking up the outdoors, so why not bring it inside too. Indoor plants and succulents create a fresh and vibrant aesthetic, which breathes life into neutral rooms. If you don’t have the greenest fingers, opt for low maintenance blooms or artificial ones – who’s going to notice the difference?

3. Accessorise your neutral room

Adding colour to a room can be as simple as accessorising your current space. There are plenty of ways to bring in different shades, including using cushions, throws and artwork. You can also incorporate colour into light fixtures and mirror frames.

Another benefit of adding colour to your accessories and soft furnishings is that it’s interchangeable. So when you feel like sprucing the place up, just switch in items that match your new colour scheme to refresh the space.

4. A pop of luxury

If you’re looking to add a luxe vibe to your neutral space, metallic finishes are an ideal choice. The texture of metallic shades creates a unique touch and reflects light and colour into your room. Getting the balance right with metallic colours is essential, otherwise, you may overwhelm the space. To create a statement look, opt for furniture such as our Juliette Gold collection. Alternatively, our Juliette Shabby Chic Champagne range with crystal handles adds a more subtle sparkle.

5. Paint one wall

To experiment with a new colour in your neutral room, why not try painting one wall? Back in the day, feature walls were a big trend, and this is a similar vibe with a modern twist. You can opt for a bold, contrasting shade or choose a subtle accent to brighten the space. This can be a great option if you’re looking to create a lighter feel. For example, some of the best colours to brighten a dark room include white, warm greens and blues, such as Graham Brown’s Colour of the Year 2022 – Breathe.
