Any amateur interior decorator can follow. Soon, you’ll be the envy of that on-fleek effortless look; others will wonder what design school you went to!
Keep it neutral
First rule is to keep it neutral. Neutral tones provide a sense of calmness and tranquility through opening up spaces and offering respect to the natural world. Whites, greys and browns never retire from our palette. Look towards accessories made from natural materials themself, like this amazing concrete pendant which remains pared down despite its dramatic over fall, or marble vases with such beautiful natural veining!

Small pops of color
With a neutral foundation now in place, it’s always fun to add a small pop of color. These pops are a fun accent to show off your personality and are easy to change as the seasons come and go. For the spring/summer, pastels like these shades mint and blue compliment the neutrals tones of bright grey walls and white furniture. This mint vase is particularly fun!

Cushions and throws are a small item to that make a big impact on the coziness of a home. It’s so simple, and with the plethora of prints to choose from, cushions can be that double pop of color in your neutral base home.

Layer and use multiples
It’s basically art. Get creative with these two key words in mind. Once stacking books, laying wood boards has become a very stylish trend in the kitchen compiled from functional practical objects. Multiples of three is a personal favorite. This looks particularly nice with varying heights, and is great with mixing flower pots or vases and candles.

Flowers add freshness
Lastly, you can never go wrong with flowers. Add a spring bouquet to a simple marble vase or bring home fancy foliage for a more authentic rustic feel. Succulents and cacti are always a good choice, whether planted in a small terrarium or large planter. Trees and large plants can add so much character and life to a home. You just can’t go wrong with green!
