Quick Color Confidence: Neutral Colors

Chromatic neutrals are nature's tones. They have a grounded uncomplicated style. Authentic, natural and never gaudy. They are functional workhorse colors and combine easily with so many colors. ~Margie

Palettes of neutral chromatic tones like those found in Japanese art and many interior-design palettes can be the epitome of understated elegance. They can also be bland and boring if not handled properly!

In this class, you'll learn what comprises neutral colors and how to combine them to create beautiful strong palettes. By the end, you'll be able to have your neutral color schemes say what you want and make an impressive impact.
