Colorful neutrals. Hmmm. Isn’t that an oxymoron? In a recent redesign, color was needed to break up the SW Repose Gray walls, brown floors and end tables, and ivory couch. Colorful books in muted tones give a needed pop while still keeping the feel calm and cozy. Using a candle the same tone as the table allows the books to take the show.. but the sparkle of the glass adds interest to the many matte finishes. Finally, something earthy green is always a win. Can’t deal with real plants? That’s okay. There are plenty of faux grasses and succulents out there to help achieve the same look.
