You know that colour rules my world. But I really do admire and appreciate spaces that are beautifully decorated in a more neutral manner. The Scandinavians do neutral so well. With black and white they bring contrast, but the most important thing when styling a neutral space, in my opinion, is texture. Texture brings life and interest, mix it, layer it, lots of it.
Lotta Agaton is one amazing Scandinavian stylist. These photos are all part of her portfolio. This is how you do neutral! Remember... contrast and texture.
I couldn't resist adding these last two photos, with the shot of fresh green - doesn't it look brilliant?! I love the rug, it looks like lush green grass.
