For years I loved the minimal or neutral look for home interiors – the black and white combination, that changed to dark grey after a few years, to greige because I fell in love with the word first, then to Scandi white with organic touches. Even my clothes were mostly black and white or light and dark neutrals. Then, a few years back I had a change of heart and embraced bold colors like emerald, mustard, deep purple, fire engine red, bright orange, teal, blush…
Change of heart does not mean though that I have turned my back on the neutrals. For me neutrals are as basic as breathing. I cannot imagine painting my home with rainbow colors because that’s just not me. I like the neutrals to be the dominant color in a space.
I wrote about my easy two-step method for choosing your palette using flowers. I’d like to extend that here to other things you see in the natural world. This time I want to concentrate on the more subdued tones of neutrals.
