A Neutral Palette Mixed with Colour

I love to create a neutral canvas to start in a home and then add accents of colour throughout. This Atlanta home featured in this month’s edition of House Beautiful is a stunning example of how a neutral backdrop can sing when you add colour to it.

Check it out:

Colour is not the only element that makes this space special. The designer, Kay Douglass, plays with scale and proportion particularly in the light fixtures and furnishings. Attention to the architectural details is also shown in the ceilings and windows.

How do you like colour in your home? Do you use it as a dominant feature or as an accent in a neutral space?

  1. Very pretty. Love all the orange!

  2. I like a neutral color palette with pops of color. Love those inspiration pics- just stunning!

  3. The orange with white is fabulous! I use accent pillows and accessories to bring color into a space. That way when I get tired it is an easy switch to another color palet. I am working on having the GUTS to paint my living room all pure Cloud White to freshen it up then incorporate hits of color with accessories. Who knows maybe someday I will have the guts to paint the currently Dijon yellow hallway white too as it looks so fresh in photos!
