We LOVE neutrals, but lets face it, sometimes they can make a space feel a little drab. To keep your design from falling into yawn territory, try mixing in a cool neutral with subtle hints of blue to balance your other neutral surfaces. Blue on its own can easily overwhelm a space, but when de-saturated, it becomes a classic, near-neutral that will feel modern, fresh and current.

Cool neutrals lend themselves to monochromatic designs. To recreate this look choose finishes with varying tints and shades of the same cool hue while playing with texture to add interest and dimension.

For a little more contrast try one of our darker, more dramatic cool neutrals such as Skipping Stone and pair it with bright whites and warm woods. This cool hue will stand out without overpowering your space.

Or you can opt for a more masculine design by pairing a deep cool gray like Flint with rich wood cabinetry dark floors and countertops, and sleek stainless steel appliances.
