American singers and songwriters Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have impeccable taste when it comes to choosing color schemes for their homes. Their Nashville home is a calm, subtle palette of warm neutrals, while their Bahamas property is awash with a coastal-inspired blue and white palette. It is abundantly clear that the long-married couple knows exactly what they want. 

Borrowing inspiration from nature's dazzling colors is one of the simplest ways to choose room color ideas for any space. Offering myriad hues that sit harmoniously together, you cannot go wrong with a modern organic color scheme. In other words, a predominantly neutral palette of beige, cream, taupe, and greige. 

A soothing combination of two opposing interior design styles, modern organic is classified by its simplicity. Think calming colors, and organic materials that originate from nature. The modern organic trend thrives on a base of neutrals, allowing other elements to shine.

The power of a neutral color palette to add warmth, sophistication and refined elegance to a room should not be underestimated, especially when selecting the perfect entryway color ideas. A soft scheme of harmonious neutrals creates a reflective backdrop to the ever-changing light of the seasons.

When putting together a modern organic, neutral scheme remember that warmer shades, such as creams, work well with cooler ones, including light grays. The beauty of a neutral scheme is that it provides a wonderful scaffold upon which to hang accents of color, adds Deborah Bass, founder of Base Interior. 

‘This is especially true in an entryway where a neutral wall or a textured plaster or wallpaper wall finish creates a background for mirrors and art, both of which can take the decorative center stage.’ She recommends grounding subtler shades with a deeper, richer natural timber to create a balance.

Finally, when decorating with neutrals, in a similar way to Hill and McGraw's home, a key element is the importance of layering with textures and tonal shades. Touch and comfort are key sensory triggers. Introduce plenty of visual interest, such as metallic accents, patterns in the form of art, and invest in vintage or antique furniture to add a final flourish to a modern organic look.
