One advantage of a neutral-dominated palette is that it’s easy to use in unconventional ways throughout your home. A living room ceiling in a watery blue and trim in a frothy gray-beige rather than white shades usually selected for these surfaces is an unexpected surprise.
Use decor to refine your room’s palette. Neutral curtains and table lamps coordinate with a woven, patterned rug. Pillows featuring bursts of blue tie in a bold accent color. Fruit, flowers, and accessories provide avenues for fine-tuning your color scheme with pops of color and crisp whites.
