hello! it's the seventh of the month, which means it's time for a new papertrey ink color ambassador post. today i thought it was a good time to take a look at neutrals. gray, black, white, tan, brown and off-white are typically considered the basic neutral colors. browns, tans, and off-white tend to make color schemes feel warmer, while black and white and greys can look warm or cool depending on the surrounding colors. while neutrals are an important component to almost any color scheme, today we'll take a look at them as the main component.
currently, papertrey ink has three inks in the black/gray color family (with one on the way!) and four basic browns - a nice range for monochromatic neutrals. adding a single bright or bold accent color to either of these neutral palettes is one of the most basic color schemes to try. the idea is somewhat similar to designing with monochromatic colors but even easier to pull off. It's also one of the most visually striking color schemes.
so head on over to the papertrey ink blog to read more about neutral colors, including two examples of each neutral palette with a pop of bright. i always love to hear your thoughts. leave a comment and let's discuss...
have a colorful day!
