Neutral Color Palettes = Glamour & Sophistication
I often blog about color, bold prints and patterns and dramatic ideas for creating impactful interiors. Sometimes I get so carried away my love for color, I overlook neutral color palettes, which can be just as dramatic and beautiful! One way to keep a neutral color palette fresh and exciting is by mixing together different textures and finishes (like an off-white nubby area rug paired with a sleek espresso cocktail table). To keep things from looking boring and stale, contrast is a must! You'll notice in several of these photos that the light fabrics, paint, etc. are mixed in with darker furniture and accents. Although all of these rooms are timeless, classic and very chic, I find myself wanting to add a pop of color here and there! What are your thoughts on simple, neutral color palettes?
