Keeping your interior design scheme neutral does not necessarily equate to being boring. Far from it really, as while neutral furniture is practical, the biggest benefit of a neutral base is that it allows you to work with any number of different colours to lift the space at hand.
Many interior specialists suggest that key pieces of furniture, such as sofas and side tables, should be neutral – think soft greys, white, latte or taupe paired with natural timbers. By keeping your key investment pieces neutral, you also tend to maximise the longevity of your interiors. You can, of course, then play with colour through the use of more changeable home décor pieces such as cushions, lamps, artworks or ceramics.
If you want to go all-neutral, you will need to factor in textural elements to provide depth to your space. Textural pieces work to change how a room feels by giving a sense of warmth, with coarse textures making a room that could otherwise feel flat, seem more inviting and comfortable.
Here are some beautiful neutral spaces that have been inspiring us lately:
Australian artist Kate McKinnon is given the perfect platform for her beautiful artworks to shine thanks to these neutral, timeless furniture choices from Satara Australia.
Salvage Road’s Montana stools and Oslo Cushions will provide a tactile, neutral element. As mentioned, when opting for an all over neutral look, texture plays an important role in providing the space with a sense of warmth and depth.
Last, but not least, here is Amalfi showing us how to expertly create an effortless neutral resort vibe in your home. This wall hanging is bang on trend and would look great in a coastal home.
