Pure, harmonious shades of white and cream are a timeless decorating theme. Mix textures and abstract patterns inspired by Nature to make a fresh contemporary living room that would be at home in town or country. Mix painted furniture in shades of milky white and Bone with touches of natural wood on shelves and table tops. Use open back shelving to show off a feature wallpaper. Layer up texture and white on white patterns on sofa cushions. Choose different tones of white and natural in relaxed country linen. Showcase art work and collectibles in an eclectic mix of box shelving and different styles of frame on walls. Combine delicate ceramics with milky glazes and the pattern of lace with smart contemporary glass andwood pieces.
A gentle palette of warm, mixed neutrals gives you the freedom to play with different accent colours and interesting textures and finishes as your room scheme evolves.
