What Colours Go With Neutral Painted Furniture?

What Colours Go With Neutral Painted Furniture?

High end, neutral painted furniture is hard to beat as an investment in your home. Whether your style is cottage-inspired rustic, industrial chic or Scandinavian minimalist, neutral tones of painted furniture will complement your interior décor. A neutral colour for your furniture also allows you to change your style and adapt it to each room, providing it with its own character. Whilst interior design fashions come and go, your trusty neutral painted furniture will remain a reliable constant that has been around for many years and is likely to remain popular for many more years to come. Here, we can offer you some ideas to create the ambience you desire by using different colours with your neutral painted furniture.

1. Mellow Minimalism

Creams and greys are perfect for those who have pared back their homes and are looking for a calm, serene and simple interior. This palette is particularly effective for bedrooms when a fuss-free, uncluttered environment is desired to aid a good night’s sleep. The look can be adapted to create a warmer, rustic feel alongside natural materials such as wooden floorboards and brick walls or by adding a combination of other neutrals such as darker hues like dark grey or brown. These simple base colours can be adapted to suit the occupant of a bedroom as we will see later in this article.

2. Bold Beauty

Using neutral painted furniture as a base, wildly bold and interesting colours can be used as a backdrop without appearing shouty. If you tire of the bold background, you simply change it for a different one at minimal cost. Grey goes especially well with lush reds and pinks, accenting your space and giving it a warm, cosy feel whilst maintaining an ultra-modern look. Deep blues and greens offer a luxurious ambience with cream and white painted furniture. If you’re not sure whether you’re ready to take the plunge and paint each wall in a bold colour, try painting one statement wall and put pictures or mirrors up on the other walls that pick up the main accent colour either in the frames or in the detail.

3. Notes of Nature

Darker greys in particular work well with shades of green, creating an earthy undertone that can be added to with throws, cushions and curtains in sage, mustard and burnt orange. These hues generate a warm, cosy appeal ideal for living areas. Try alternating chairs in different shades of neutrals for extra interest. Green is known to create a sense of balance and introduces a hint of nature to your home. Pot plants or a vase of flowers complete the look.

4. The Male Zone

Colours can of course ‘belong’ to anyone but if your aim is to achieve a traditionally ‘masculine’ look, blue is always up there as a colour of choice. It goes beautifully with grey and other neutral furniture but to avoid a cold, bland look, introduce browns and shades of maroon for warmth. This can be achieved with throws, cushions, pictures and other soft furnishings. Take care to provide cosy lighting using table lamps rather than relying on ceiling lights which can create a stark appearance.

5. The Vibrant Spring Touch

Neutral painted furniture is ideal in any room because as we’ve mentioned, the look and feel of the room can be vastly altered by means of changing the colour of the walls or accessories. An ever-popular theme is to utilise cheerful, springtime palettes in either blocks of colour or floral themes. Depending on which part of your home you’re revamping, duvet covers, rugs, table cloths or any other soft furnishings in bright hues bring vibrancy to your home.
