Three weeks ago, we did a palette on Gentle, and Warm Neutrals. This week, we’ll be focusing on the genuine monochromatic neutrals: black, grey and white, showing you how these seemingly drab colours can still be fun to play with.

Orange is NOT the new black
Often, many perceive Black and Grey as sombre colours, which need the diversion of other hues to be visually palatable. This mood board, however, reveals how distinctive and alluring the neutral scheme is, such that bright colours might distract viewers if they exist in such a landscape.
Too much black – your home would be the latest funeral hall in town.
Too much white – you can basically name your home ‘plain Jane’.
Instead, why not try injecting a delicate grey into the picture, as an alternative display of creativity – neutral grey occurs when all the light rays of the spectrum falling on an object are absorbed to the same degree. Regardless of its decorative scheme, greys constantly provide a practical note of incongruity.When you’re conscientious in positioning your monochromatic elements to colour your interior, you’ll achieve a visual balance between both black and white components.
That’s all for this week, folks. Stay tuned to this space for more!
