When selecting furniture for your home that complements this design style, opt for pieces with clean lines and more modern silhouettes. Light and bright neutrals in the above color palette work well on upholstered items such as your sofa, accent chairs and bedroom furniture. Introduce various textures and fabrics to bring in more interest and warmth. Lighter wood tones can be used throughout, especially for all tables–from the dining room table to your coffee and console tables.

Highlight various features of your home and don’t be afraid to add in various points of interest. Grasscloth, raffia and rattan textiles work well in this design scheme and bring in extra textural elements. Wallpaper an entire room, like the powder bath or dining room, in a neutral patterned or textured wallpaper! If wallpaper isn’t your favorite, another way to enhance your walls is to incorporate wood trim wall accents or an arched design, like the photo below.

Now it’s time to add in the finishing touches! Elevate your light fixtures by utilizing a brushed brass finish on pieces like your chandeliers, sconces and lamps. Bring in interesting and textural artwork and don’t be afraid to think outside the box–try hanging raffia wall art and framed textiles. Don’t forget to bring some of the outside in with various potted plants in wooden pots and vessels.
