Neutral Is The Name Of The Game
White, beiges, and even some shades of black are the main color palette for modern design, but it can incorporate color as an accent, so long as it leans towards earthy. Modern design has a large emphasis on natural materials, so keeping things in a more natural color palette is key.
When a bold color is used, it’s never to cover an entire wall, but rather is used sparingly to provide a focal point and help break up neutrals. “Clean lines over curves. Neutral colors and natural materials over bold hues and synthetic materials and patterns,” says Myers.
