Neutral Colours

Strictly speaking the only true neutrals are white, pure grey and black. They are referred to as achromatic – meaning “free from, or without, colour”.

The term neutral, however, is commonly used to describe natural colours like cream, beige, taupe, stone and brown. Unlike the achromatic colours these relate back to the colour wheel as they display undertones of a spectral colour and will be warm and cool accordingly.

Neutrals work well as colour schemes in their own right, yet, they can easily play a supportive role, becoming backdrops for stronger and more saturated colours.
