Grey And White Interiors: Neutrals Are Here To Stay!

Grey And White Interiors: Neutrals Are Here To Stay!

Grey and whites are a great foundation to any interior. With endless styles and contemporary looks, the options are endless. Keep reading for more reasons why neutrals are here to stay for the summer! 

 

Layering

Layering neutrals is an extremely classy way to upgrade interiors on a budget. Adding textures is essential to add body to an open space. Incorporating accents from accessories like mirrors, side tables and plant pots are a great way to enhance the neutral tones. Throws and rugs are a great accessory to include neutrals into a living space. By using lighter accessories with darker walls, a strong contrast can be made within the room and vice versa.

 

Texturing

Lightweight textures are great in summer to give a lighter, airy feel to the interior. Using throws and lighter coloured pillowcases in living rooms or bedrooms can add more depth and a very contemporary style to the living area. Woods and other organic beige accents release a modern feel to the whole space. Texturising an interior emits a very homely vibe with a spacious feel due to the light shades of colours used throughout the room. Continuing the organic feel through staple pieces is a great idea when working with beiges, side tables and wooden accents through tables and chairs create a very natural, hygge vibe to the space.

 

Accessorising

Accessories are a great way to bring colour and added brightness to the room. By leaving walls and main features of the room neutral, accessories are easy to contrast and add a brighter feel to the room. When pairing accessories with white, faux plants are a very current accessory when thinking about a refresh for summer. Mirrors and photo frames are a great way to accessorise by matching the accents to contrast with the main colour of the room. Chromes also work very successfully alongside neutrals due to the amount of option it provides when deciding how to decorate in summer. Continuing with the minimal theme, cream shades are to die for during the summertime. Rugs, vases and other table ware is a gorgeous way to revitalise the greys and nudes used to previously fill the room. 

 

Geometric patterns

Monotone colours are a great base to start off with styling interiors. Using multiple shades of the same colour in a geometric pattern is perfect for extra dimension. Patterned rugs and throws are great to add depth and an extra boost of colour whilst still sticking to the neutral theme of the space. Other patterns may be seen on vases, mirrors, lamps and other accessories. Patterns are. Continuing with the theme of geometrics, a two tonal pattern is a great way to add another colour. Chromes are stylish and a great accent to add when sticking to neutrals and also creating natural shadows and depth to the neutral space. 

 

Lighting

Lighting is the perfect accessory to add into any neutral interior to create a sumptuous atmosphere. Warm lighting dress the room with an extra shade of neutral yellow, whilst a brighter light may visually extend your space. Natural lighting is also a great feature to accentuate the textures and layers of the living space. Natural lighting tends to give more depth to a room as well as tying the whole summer feel of the room together along with other accessories and colours.

4 ways you can add the Hygge look to your home.

4 ways you can add the Hygge look to your home.

A Hygge home is a refreshing, brightening space with a calming atmosphere to think and reflect. The environment should be a stress-free zone with a restricted colour palette to the scene. Anything with a relaxing vibe is what Hygge is all about. Read on to discover how you can transform your home into a zen place for you and your family.

Neutral Colour Scheme

A neutral colour scheme is the basics for transforming your home. Using minimalistic tones is a great way to create a natural bright atmosphere with very little clutter on show around your home. Using warm neutral tones such as creams and beiges are a great way to give the home feel a sense of Hygge. Each room could incorporate these colours with small additions such as accessories, paint, furniture and rugs. Cushions and throws create a warm feel to the space, whilst walls are white to match or contrast the accessories and extra features of the room.

Textures

Textures are a great way to introduce Hygge to your home; with rugs, throws and cushions. A geometric pattern goes great with the minimal look due to the darker patterns standing out from the white neutral tones of the room. Sofas, carpets and all lounge accessories are a soft fabric so the space can be a place of zen. The textures will create a zone of relaxation to destress the mind after a long day’s work. Throws are a great way to dress any living room or bedroom to warm to space up in the winter, or just a great feature for a quiet night in maintaining the relaxing, cosy theme of Hygge.

Lighting

Lighting is a great way to help create the perfect atmosphere in your hygge home. Increase the natural lighting in your home by opening up window frames; removing any dark or heavy curtains/blinds and replace with lighter tones and textures. Candles can dress the room for a more relaxing environment or just some ambience whilst you’re relaxing around the home! The warm lighting emits a homely and snug feel to your Hygge home and can also inject a soothing fragrance into the space. Another great way to add lighting to your home is a string of delicate fairy lights wrapped around smaller pieces of furniture or hanging around a shelf or picture frame.

Natural Elements

Natural elements such as plants and books are great accessories to include into your new Hygge way of living. Plants give the whole room a great natural, botanical feel aside with the natural lighting for a much lighter spacious atmosphere. Books are a great way to detox your mind from social media and the internet. With the additional lighting, textures and fresh plants the space will open up to create an amazing space to think and relax either alone or with loved ones. Having a Hygge home is all about how you feel and the impact it will have on mindfulness.
