Layering neutrals through fabrics, paint and furniture creates an elegant and timeless feel to any room. Designer Shelley Johnstone Paschke of Shelley Johnstone Design, designed this incredibly chic and stylish dining room, shown above.
“Fabric-adorned walls, linen-printed drapery treatments and vintage Chippendale-style rattan chairs add warmth and a more casual feel to the space. I chose these elements to create a timeless room that is inviting and beautiful,” says Johnstone Paschke.
Personally, I like to design neutral spaces with pops of color through accessories are anything but boring. The end result is an elegant room that will never go out of style.
Small doses of punchy colors and bold prints add an unexpected layer when paired with classic neutral patterns.
Manchester Tan, Benjamin Moore (HC-81):
A favorite go-to soft neutral, this color is an easygoing beige that works well with many undertones.
Revere Pewter, Benjamin Moore (HC-172):
This paint remains a top pick by designers because of its warmth and adaptability in a space.
Borrowed Light, Farrow & Ball (#235):
Complement your neutral walls with a painted ceiling! Dubbed the perfect light blue, this color works well in rooms with natural light and is hands- down a favorite for interior ceilings.
