Put It in Neutral

In the design industry, we spend a lot of time talking about color, especially bright and bold hues. But interiors can be just as fabulous when they enter neutral territory. In fact, I’m partial to those quieter statements that can be made. Designer Rafael de Cárdenas designed the contemporary room below and he says he loves neutrals because they remind him of the colors that were popular in movies of his childhood.

There’s no better room for neutrals than in a kitchen, like the one I designed for a modern farmhouse below. The neutral colors give it a fresh and classic look.

Neutrals love to dress up, too, like in this glam room from Amy Morris Interiors for the Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens presented by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.

In the interior design world, the queen of ethereal neutral style is Suzanne Kasler. I love her quiet but impactful interiors!
