Whether you like bold designs or soft, whimsy styles, we believe a monochromatic palette can serve you well. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself what going monochromatic can do for your home. Today, that means taking a look at your neutral options.

Monochromatic palettes for your mobile home: neutral

According to Empowered by color, neutral denotes safety and security. It’s part of a conservative mood. Beige, ivory, and cream are some of the colors included in the neutral category. 

The writer goes on to explain that if “90% of the room is neutral, then the mood will be neutral. However, if you have just used a couple of neutral items mixed with other colors, the room isn’t predominantly neutral.”

If you’re a little intimidated by matching and mixing colors, a neutral palette is a safe bet. You can accent neutral colors with just about anything. 

So neutral isn’t just mentally safe, it’s decoratively safe too.
