Neutral Colour Palette

An important thing to remember when working with a neutral colour palette is incorporating texture. This can be done with different fabrics (cushions, curtains, rugs, table runners etc.) and different materials for furniture such as wood, stone and glass.

Here is an inspiring picture I found. The cornice molding and cage light fitting helps greatly adding interest to the room.

The image above shows to can add a little bit of colour to stop the room from looking bland.

At Ikea you can buy textile products quite cheaply and if you're going for a neutral theme then the Swedish is perfect.

Light is also very important! You can add simple tea-light candles (could be LED ones), fairy lights or just a decorative chandelier or ceiling light fixture. The image below shows a pretty set up using some tea light candles. Also the dark flowers and stove make a beautiful contrast.
