The Fine Art of Balance
The best time to invest in neutrals was yesterday. The second best time is today. That’s because you’re ten steps ahead of the interior design game when you have a neutral palette upon which to build.
A light grey sofa, taupe walls and a wood floor form a neutral foundation. This allows you to fall in love with an item like an amazing blue velvet chair and be confident that you don’t have to redo the entire room to accommodate it.
In this setting, the reclaimed wood coffee table, with its lovely variations in color and visual texture, functions as a neutral. A basket on the table introduces another neutral with a unique texture.
The hammered plated-nickel drum table and hammered nickel beverage table also function as neutrals with delightfully different textures.
