Balancing the Neutrals
We’re seeing a lot of greys in homes lately, which we like. Grey is a wonderful neutral. But it’s important to bring in other colors, which is why we relied on a variety of woods in this space to create balance.
The unique texture of the reclaimed wood coffee table compliments the smoother fabric textures nearby. An equally stunning, low, block-like rectangular table along the back of the sofa provides another surface, areas for storage and several shades of wood. This versatile piece could be used in other areas of the house, as well.
As a showcase piece, a small chest of drawers with a metal top—all reclaimed and unfinished—brings in yet another kind of wood, along with vintage character. A contemporary lamp in polished black stone atop the dresser picks up the black in the artwork behind it and creates a modern-retro contrast.
A modern, block-like wood chair brings in a variety of woods, accented with a light cushion. And a smaller octagon-shaped table features a detailed wood top and metal base and holds a lamp with a round wood base.
In a corner near the bar, an elegant wood-topped pub table and matching stools provide a cozy and stylish gathering space. A metal and wood lamp hangs above the table and a large print accents similar colors and helps shape the space.
Green and white floral accents and accessories pick up the light colors and create a suggestion of early spring. To change the look, simply switch out florals, throws and pillows appropriate for another season.
