Creating a Neutral Haven

Colours are brilliant at creating moods in a room, but keeping colours in neutral hues can create a beautifully relaxing and sophisticated haven. By mixing textures, tones, and materials you can create a timeless soothing atmosphere you’ll relish coming home to unwind in.  A neutral colour pallet includes not just white, but soft greys, indulgent creams, and can be contrasted with brown or black accessories.  One big advantage of having a neutral colour scheme is you can always add splashes of colour at a later date without having to redesign your room.

The cool grey sofa and glass accessories in this room create a fresh and relaxing environment.  The clash of patterns, textures and old and new help add interest to this simple yet sophisticated design.

Creating a neutral living space can seem quite daunting, especially if you normally choose dark forgiving hues that hide any mishaps.  However, by incorporating rugs and throws you can create a sumptuous and comforting environment that’s also practical to live in.

This simple yet stylish Luxury Ravello fabric in Rich Vanilla has completely transformed this vintage piece of furniture and would help to freshen up any room.  When accessorizing think about how much white or black you want in the room, as an imbalance can be stark and heavy.  By adding accessories with light wood and foliage/floral wallpaper you can add a natural influence to the design.  Lighting helps to add warmth, and softens the cool colours of a neutral room, think big lamps, and simple candles.
