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.
Geometrics are the key pattern for this type of scheme. simple graphic stripes and spots, plus textural linen fabrics will introduce depth and drama.
the warm non-yellow tones of oak laminate flooring suit a neutral or monochrome room. Wide planks provide a more contemporary feel.
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.
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.
