Neutral Room Decor

The Trick to Keeping Neutrals Far From Boring

Although it's often the bold colors and trendy details that catch our eye, it's layered neutrals that have our heart. At their best, neutrals are layered, textured, and elegant — in other words, anything but boring. Follow our guide below to learn how easy it is to make an understated impact inspired by the one below.

  • Choose the right hues: When it comes to creating an airy space, the right hues are key. To keep your room bright, set the tone with cream-colored paint ($68 a gallon), that will act as the foundation for your neutral pallet.
  • Opt for crisp linens: The right linens and textures will give your space an effortless look. Rather than choosing patterned bedding, opt for a classic white quilt ($51-$394, originally $64-$474) and layer with a light brown throw blanket ($395). Use metallic linen pillows ($7-$36) to add even more texture and a cotton ruffled pillow ($8-$24, originally $8-$36) for subtle detail. Sheer curtains ($40) are an essential that favor natural light.
  • Style earthy accents: To prevent your space from looking too curated, choose earthy pieces that are timeless. A "vintage" glass vase ($8), gold dove ($60), and light wood tray ($69-$89) make simple statements.
  • Embrace clean lines: To prevent your space from being fussy or formal, choose decor with clean lines and soft colors. This side chair ($2,995) is perfect because its mid-century design is softened with a driftwood finish and cowhide upholstery. Although understated, a white glass lamp ($588) can be a glamorous touch.
