Neutral colour schemes can be used for a range of interiors looks, and are easy to live with. What is a neutral? Essentially, neutral means without colour. Neutrals such as beige, ivory, taupe, black, grey and shades of white appear to be without colour, but in many applications these hues often have many undertones that need just as much thought as when decorating with colour. Here we pick our favourite neutral spaces, and explain how to create the look in your home.
Get a high end feel with key pieces from different eras. Shades of linen and taupe gently blend with a wonderfully ornate stone fireplace and period coving in this subtly extravagant living room. A pair of elegant armchairs catch the light of the bay window which highlights their feminine paisley-print upholstery. The mid-century chair with iron frame makes a fashionable juxtaposition to the more traditional pieces.
Curtains are the perfect way to add visual depth and functionality to a window. Having curtains allows you to control the amount of sunlight you allow to enter through the windows. This could help protect your furniture from fading. Curtains also add privacy to your living by preventing people from seeing into your home. With the many models of curtains to choose from, there is no shortage of options when improving the elegance of your living room.

While banishing clutter might help a smaller living room feel more open, if you’re a fan of the cosy, lived-in look such a pared back scheme will do little for you. But small doesn’t have to mean bare and characterless. Try the classic combination of dark leather armchair and traditional fireplace – there’s nothing like it for creating a warm, cosy environment. Add much-loved items and accessories – in an interesting, character-filled scheme, no one will be thinking about how small the room is.
