I've always gravitated to neutral colors. Sometimes they can be boring, but I've lately punched it up with a black patterned sofa and a few black accents here and there. My front door is black and I have some wrought iron pieces and an absolute black marble surround on my gas fireplace. I'm planning on a stairway re-do with iron accents and hardware. Seasonal decor can be quite lively. Spring lime greens, summer aquas, autumn oranges and golds, and winter reds and pine greens keep the interest and can be easily changed out. I scatter colorful pillows, throws, and ceramics, to keep it balanced. About the time I tire of one set of stuff, it is time for a seasonal change.
