15 Proofs That Neutral Colors Are An Excellent Choice For A Stylish Home

We have already mentioned how certain colors in the interior affect the mood and can visually reduce or increase the space. But this time we consider the neutral colors and the effect they have in the interior. The neutral color palette is composed of white, black and gray. Here, we will include also the brown and all their mutual combinations. If you want to achieve “softness” in your home, calmness, unobtrusiveness, comfort and harmony, then choosing a neutral color palette is ideal for you. This implies the decoration of the entire interior in a neutral palette, both for wall and floor coverings, as well as for the choice of furniture and other decorative elements.

A neutral color palette can be used in all rooms at the home. Brighter neutral color tones in the bedroom will help you to rest and relax easily. Since the bathroom is usually a small room and does not tolerate visual chaos, with choosing a neutral color palette, you will achieve harmony and ease in the space. The living room decorated in a neutral color palette will be the right choice for all those who do not like to experiment with the colors. Moreover, by choosing neutral colors your living room can be decorated very effectively and glamorously. So, the final conclusion is: neutral color palette is the right choice if you seek elegance, harmony and pleasant feel in the home!

Fraser Residence by Christopher Simmonds Architects

The Fraser Residence is a compact modern home situated in Ottawa, Canada. This elegant looking home boasts strong, linear lines both on its exterior and in its interior areas. The former consists of brick in an earth-toned shade combined with cedar siding, broken apart by dark bronze aluminium glazing.
The interior is not left to lack natural light. All of the common areas are blessed with sunlight that comes through the enormous windows which also help to make a seamless transition between the outdoor and indoor living spaces.

Juxtaposed volumes define the exterior appearance of this modern home while interweaving special volumes define the expansive interior.

The house takes advantage of its sloping site by inserting the garage into the lower level. This allows the elongated porch and glazed projections of the living spaces to define the home’s character in the streetscape. Subtle earth-toned brick, stained cedar siding and dark bronze aluminum glazing systems form the neutral exterior palette.

This project won Best Custom Urban Infill in 2011.

“Chris carefully listened to our needs and created a space that was exactly what we had envisioned, balancing aesthetics with functionality. The process was exciting and the end product is truly a dream home that is very contemporary but blends well within the community.” – Homeowners
