Love it? Share it!

I love two things in my home: a neutral color scheme and modern farmhouse style decor. However, so often I find that people think white is boring. Thankfully, neutral design doesn’t have to be lifeless!

It can be an amazing backdrop to allow certain elements of design to shine. Learn how to create a modern farmhouse neutral spring decor design plan that is interesting and cozy!

Who else loves the calm that neutral decor can bring? It literally soothes me to be surrounded by earth tones, whites and creams. That is what is best for my home and the haven that I’m creating!

On the other hand, I love the warmth and life that subtle pops of color can bring. So, this year I’m mainly using a neutral color palette for my spring decor with very subtle pops of pink and green.

How to Make Neutral Feel Cozy

One of the common misnomers of neutral design is that everything must be white to be considered neutral. This is what I call the Hospital Effect.

All white everywhere is certainly neutral, but it also creates a very sterile feeling environment. It’s also one of the most common mistakes of home makers who think that any dose of color will ruin their neutral color palette.

So, rather than focusing in on “only whites” for my neutral design, I keep a “natural over neutral” mindset.

Natural Over Neutral

The overarching colors in my spring living room decor are whites/creams, green, and earth tones (aka wood & natural color baskets).

In short, if you can find the color in nature, then it can be a neutral!

Nature v. Neutral

The neutral design style is less about the absence of color and more about feeding off of natural textures and colors.

Green or blue are common accents in neutral design because of the natural hues they offer. They are a perfect splash of color that can stand out in a sea of white and create a statement.

I love incorporating live plants for that very reason. It literally adds nature to my design to break up whites and creams. Plus, plants are a natural decor accent that go with any design style or accent color. Green always matches!

Pink and Green

Take a minute and think about the natural colors. Green is always among them. Flowers are a great resource to see how colors pair together.

I personally tend to gravitate towards pink flowers in my own garden, so it’s no surprise that my pop of color in the living room is pinks!

Blankets and baskets.

Now, think about what you prefer in your own garden. Maybe it’s purple or yellow. Both of those colors, or any other you love, are great additions to a neutral color palette to bring life into your spring decor.

With minimal and strategic placement of these spring colors, you can easily warm up a space and add a little boost of color to your otherwise neutral spring decor.
