Smart neu­trals

COLOURS

Don’t think neu­tral has to mean bor­ing – there are more nat­u­ral colours out there than just cream and beige. con­sider mink, taupe, mush­room, oys­ter, and warm grey. add black-and-white touches to bring the look up to date and add some def­i­ni­tion.

FAB­RIC

Geo­met­rics are the key pat­tern for this type of scheme. sim­ple graphic stripes and spots, plus tex­tu­ral linen fab­rics will in­tro­duce depth and drama.

FLOOR­ING

the warm non-yel­low tones of oak lam­i­nate floor­ing suit a neu­tral or mono­chrome room. Wide planks pro­vide a more con­tem­po­rary feel.

LIGHT­ING

Pick floor lamps and ceil­ing lights in cool metal­lic finishes to add de­tail to a sub­tle scheme. cop­per arc lamps look sleek and stylish within a neu­tral room and pro­vide a fo­cal point in a pale in­te­rior.

FUR­NI­TURE

Go for pieces that have black metal frames, clean lines and mod­ern shapes. scandi-style chairs and ta­bles in pale wood and gloss black finishes also per­fectly com­ple­ment this con­tem­po­rary look.
