Neutral colours provide the perfect palette for creating an inviting atmosphere to any room in your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia dwelling.  Polycorp suggests you check out these eight tips for decorating with neutral colours throughout your home.

  1. Use neutrals to create the basis of your scheme, and then it’s easy to add a splash of colour and change it from time to time to keep things fresh and interesting.
  2. Select beige or off-white coloured furniture to create a peaceful environment in your home.
  3. When using neutrals, mix variations of light and dark, and try arranging one in front of the other for balance and to increase the sensation of depth.
  4. Generate pizzazz and interest to your room by bringing in different textures and patterns into your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
  5. Add slipcovers to instantly change the look of your furniture.  They can produce a wow factor to your living area or den/flex space and are relatively inexpensive. Neutral-coloured slipcovers are great for calming bright rooms or adding elegance and sophistication.
  6. Consider gray. It’s the perfect neutral colour, it looks sophisticated and goes well with most other colours.
  7. Lighting is important!  Keep your overhead lighting soft but add table lamps or accent lamps to draw attention to the accessories and artwork in your room.
  8. Establish a focal point in your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia residence by adding a burst of colour to go along with your neutral-coloured space. This could range from adding a colourful accent wall to throw pillows to window coverings to painting the doorframe.
