It is no secret that color can affect moods, feelings and emotions. Greens can create feelings of comfort, shades of orange may inspire enthusiasm and reds might ignite passion. On the other end of the spectrum, white generates a sense of peace, black denotes strength, while gray is the color of independence. A color palette focused on shades of blacks, whites and grays can be incredibly calming, sophisticated and overwhelmingly elegant.

The home below, located in Sweden, was designed using a Scandinavian style and a phenomenal combination of muted color. This type of design style is so simple, relaxed and enjoyable with traditional charm. The rooms are clean and calculated with groupings of frames casually leaning again a radiator, plain single lightbulbs strung above a black farm-style dining room table and chunky unfinished wood blocks serving as a minimalist coffee table.

Overall, color does not always have to be bright, bold and over the top to be inviting. It can be as simple as black and white (and gray).
