When it comes to interior design color trends, neutral colors are still paving the way for all things chic, but there are a few wild cards in the mix. The main idea is to add texture and pattern for that extra punch, but there are some horses of a different color making their way up to the finish line.You already know that white, gray, and beige fall into neutral territory. However according to a "My Domaine" survey of interior designers, this year they will be joined by darker forces. Sixty-six percent of the designers polled agreed that black is now a neutral tone, while 44 percent named sage green, and 42 percent navy blue as neutrals. Though not dark, even blush pink was considered a neutral by over a third of designers, indicating that neutral is being redefined as something much more pigmented and bold. And at JAC we absolutely love pigmented and bold colors.
Natural woods in wall treatments, cabinetry or furnishings are also considered a color, and these can add texture too. Of course we love wallpapers that have wood veneers in all colors to add both texture and color for extra pizazz, but the earthy tones of natural woods win over our hearts.
Some of the best pigmented or even pastel-ish shades can go so well with these colors we have loved for so long, simple whites and grays, and yes even charcoals and black. They are neutral enough and can be pared with richer and deeper colors for a more striking look, or used with grays, whites, and naturals for a neutral look.
And believe it or not, beige is coming back into fashion. It's a more organic take on the usual neutrals and pairs nicely with natural woods for a classic but modern feel. Use it in a dining room as an all around color or in an entry to offset almost any other color.
