Elle Decoration: The New Neutrals

The September 2012 issue of Elle Decoration featured eicó paints for their feature entitled The New Neutrals.

The Elle Decoration team always have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest interior trends and styles. Our classic ‘Bone’ coloured emulsion was chosen for a double page spread that depicted white, beige and grey hues for this season’s must-have palette.

Neutral colours are favourite choices for designers because of their versatility and ability to work well with most other colours. They provide a good background and clean canvass, giving any designer or homeowner more room to play with furniture and accessories in bold colours and exciting patterns. With neutral paint colours, it’s easier to layer textures , add splash of vibrant colours and experiment with other design materials. Instead of competing with the room’s decoration, neutral colours allow your treasured accents and precious arts to take center stage.

Neutrals are also timeless and elegant, creating an appeal that never go outdated no matter what the season is. By simply updating few room accents like the window drapes or couch coverings, you can shift the mood of the room from one season to another.  Also, using neutral colours balance an otherwise busy and overwhelming decor.  They make a room very soothing to the eye and evoke a sense of calm and lightness.

If you are the type of person who is more adventurous with furniture choices and needs the freedom to be able to change the entire look of the room in a day by merely changing furniture and accessories, painting in neutrals is the way to go. Without having to repaint, you can change the look and feel of your room.
