Calming and sophisticated, natural-inspired neutrals impart a sense of balance within a room, especially when paired with visually interesting textures and smaller pops of vibrant color. At SLHL, we understand the power of neutrals, and we can’t get enough of these soft, soothing shades… so don’t be afraid to break out the beige and tan! Here are our staff’s picks this week.
1. Louis XV Three-Seater Sofa from Wisteria. “Generous curves and an intricate attention to detail make this neutral sofa anything but boring. The natural tones in the fabric leave plenty of room for creativity with throw pillows and accent pieces, and the hint of ambiguity in its coloring allows it to transform from a hint of gray to a hint of beige without changing color schemes.” – Jenna Dunbar, Marketing Coordinator (Photo courtesy of www.wisteria.com)
2. Kikar Balestro Lamp from Williams-Sonoma Home. “I love that this lamp has neutral coloring. But with its edgy, global vibe and rough texture, it has eye-catching style.” – Lauren Schrader, Art Director (Photo courtesy of www.wshome.com)
3. Raleigh Camelback Bed & Headboard with Nailhead Trim from Pottery Barn. “In the spring and summer, you could dress this bed in fresh whites, and in the fall and winter, you could dress it in rich, dark colors – even velvet!” – Denise Candice, Account Executive (Photo courtesy of www.potterybarn.com)
4. Bordered Indoor/Outdoor Rug from Ballard Designs. “Every room could use a little animal magnetism, especially an outdoor room. This neutral indoor/outdoor rug with the classic zebra or leopard print border will bring a sophisticated chic to your alfresco living space.” – Judy Uelk, Editor-in-Chief (Photo courtesy of www.ballarddesigns.com)
5. Vintage French Cane Round Upholstered Armchair from Restoration Hardware. “I love pieces that are inspired by the past yet are still stylish today. Despite the fact that this chic Louis XVI chair has been reproduced from those that were popular during the French Colonial period, it would look perfectly at home in my dining room right now.” – Katie Underhill, Managing Editor (Photo courtesy of www.restorationhardware.com)
