It may seem like a strange decorating idea to consider neutrals a great decorating color palette, but in fact, they are. Neutral colors offer a unique look that bold and bright colors simply cannot give a home. If you are thinking about redecorating that living room filled with wine wall decor and rich crimson coloring, consider a neutral palette to give your room an entirely different feel.
What is Neutral?
Neutral colors are those colors that go with just about any other color. In decorating, they are usually whites, creams, and tans or beiges. While the variations between the different colors may seem minute, they are actually very different in their undertones. Whites tend to be cooler colors than creams and tans are always slightly darker than their beige counterparts. Understanding the different variations and how they work together can make a big difference in the success of decorating with neutral colors.
Eco-friendly and easy on the wallet, found metal can be the foundation for a unique decorating style. While images of soda cans mounted on the wall may rush to mind, instead think bold and crafty when creating a one-of-a-kind look. By manipulating found metal and shaping it into different designs and patterns, you can create metal wall sculptures that dramatically change the look of a room without altering the state of your bank account.
Tools of the Trade
If you have never worked with metal before, it is a good idea to invest in some heavy gloves that come to the elbow, as well as a knee-length leather apron and a pair of safety glasses. Metal is extremely sharp and it can pierce cottons and other non-leather materials very easily. A high-quality pair of metal snippers is also a great investment, as it will make any project go more smoothly. If you will be bonding pieces of metal together, a small soldering tool is necessary.
