For your bachelor or bachelorette pad, experiment with a palette predominantly showcasing shades of grey. This neutral palette is the ideal base for smaller spaces like apartments and also for any kind of decor pieces like sofas, curtains, vases, blinds, rugs that you might tend to change often based on season or trends. Sticking to shades of grey allows for versatility with décor. Go bold with bright, contrasting colours for your décor pieces if you long for some colour.
