If there’s one thing you’re probably not going to see me do too much of in my designs, it’s use a neutral color palette. 
Neutrals are something I generally shy away from because I never feel like their fun enough for me. It’s always too old, too quiet (as in, “shhh, be quiet in here”), and too “don’t look at me, I don’t wanna be the star”–totally not my style. So this week I challenged myself to come up with a neutral color palette that I’d rock…and here’s what I picked. Even though the palette is pretty creamy & calm, there’s only one solid fabric in the bunch (and it actually has a silver sheen to it, although you can’t see it in the photo)–everything else has visual interest. Abstract prints, graphic prints, geometric prints & stripes, this match up has all of my favorites! 
Greek Key geometric: Duralee 36104/15
Small scale woven tan & white: Magnolia Liana/Lincot
Abstract polka dot: Suburban Home 71047/209
Brown & white tribal print: Brunschwig & Fils BR-79771-874
Linen: Jaclyn Smith Home 02133/Linen
Velvet stripe: Kasmir Paoli Stripe/Sable
The one thing I’d add that you’re not seeing? Grasscloth wallpaper…it’s the only way I’d pull this off!
Which one is your favorite??
