How to do Neutral Well

How do you do neutral well? How do you achieve a cohesive space without it being bland? The simple answer – layers! Neutral can be very calming, inviting and warm. Here’s a couple of expert tips to get you started:

1.MATERIALS The selection of material plays a huge part. The ‘handle’ of a material is how it feels to you and how it behaves. Do you want a cosy feel? Look at velvets. Would you prefer a refined yet coastal feel? Look at a fine Belgian linen. Use both on a leather lounge, and you have another layer of materiality. This mixing of materials creates depth both visually and to the touch.
