Before I began this post, I looked up the definition of neutral just so I could be sure of what I thought I already understood. After all, beige and grey (or gray) are both colors, right? At what point does a room stop being neutral?
The definition of neutral (as referring to color) is: (a) gray; without hue; of zero chroma; achromatic. (b) matching well with many or most other colors or shades, as white or beige.
I've selected the above images of neutral rooms that I like because they use textures, patterns and shapes to add interest. Beige does not have to be boring!
