Who doesn’t want classy digs? The key is to make neutrals prominent without being boring. A simple way to do this is by selecting a neutral base for either the furniture, a main décor piece, or even wall color to start. Favorite color choices for me are white, cream, charcoal, or camel on key upholstery pieces and rugs. If you have an active household or any high-traffic areas, use performance fabrics to extend the life of your investment. If you are excited by unique fabrics or specialty textiles that require more care, then place those items in areas with less use so they will stay looking like new.
It’s not likely that you’re going to want to change out your sofa or repaint your walls every quarter, so having a strong base of classic neutrals is so valuable! Then it’s easy to rotate smaller seasonal design elements such as pillows, throws, artwork, accessories, lamps, and even rugs.
