Nature is a great place to look for interiors inspiration – natural, neutral colours are the perfect choice to bring a calming influence into your home, and can make your room feel dreamy and luxurious.
In the Spring/Summer ‘15 runway shows earlier in the year we saw an influx of designers using these beautifully subtle tones to create simple and sophisticated pieces for the catwalk. Whether fashion or interiors, sharp tailoring and clean lines ensure it stays on-trend, rather than looking drab. Our Fifty Eight’s elegant tailored appearance works particularly well with fabrics such as Brush Rose and Brush Chalk. These tones are complemented by warmer woods and create a living space that’s calm and welcoming, the perfect place to unwind after a busy day.
Natural tones will add warmth to the surroundings and when reflected around the room using high sheen accessories can make the space feel hazy and ethereal. This juxtaposition between the soft neutrals and hard gloss is pleasing to the eye and adds tactility. Dim lighting will complement natural shades and enhance the mood for a truly relaxed atmosphere.
Incorporate a number of diluted shades by layering scatter cushions and throws on a neutral sofa. Mixing colours and textures will add interest and bring a natural feel good factor. Choosing soft natural fibres including wools and linens and textures such as knitted or felted fabrics will give a soft and feminine feel. Then bring in contrasting textures like smooth marble, warm cork and basket weave to add depth and reflect natural colours in accessories like textured ceramics, in fragile pastel shades.
We adore this look so much that nature-inspired neutrals are one of our mini trends for 2015. Head over to Pinterest for inspiration and ideas on how to incorporate the trend in your home and create the perfect space for escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life. Our upholstery fabrics Brush and Blend feature subtle shades that lend themselves perfectly to the look and you can order a free sample here.
