Neutral Territory

I love this outfit that was photographed by Facehunter during fashion week.  The color combination makes a lovely ensemble and also decorating scheme.  The pop of black adds a little punctuation to neutral shades like camel, brown, ivory, and white.   The best part of using these shades in a room is that you can add Zebra rug. I think I’m going to have to resume my hunt for one again.  Sigh.

    I just purchased a white cowhide rug for my apartment and it’s absolute perfection! I adore how mixing a neutral, natural element in a room can immediately make it warmer and more interesting. Gorgeous pic choices, HC!

    Who knew a zebra or black and white rug was a pre-requisite for designing a neutral room!? I can see why–it’s a perfect counterpoint…

    Heather Clawson is an outstanding editor/curator! What a superb selection of interior details that cohere aesthetically yet each remains so distinct. Many thanks.

    I could incorporate something from each room into my house. They’re all unique and interesting. If I were in one of these rooms I’d have to touch the merchandise. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

    I try , really try to go all neutral and then I just throw in an apple green velvet pillow or fushia flowers or a burnt orange bangle bracelet. Can’t help it. No control. 🙂

    Monochromatic rooms are so peaceful and elegant.
