(Elle)What's great about these colors is that they're easily mixed and matched. Depending on the style of the room, they can feel crisp and tailored with cottons and twills in soft grays, white and tans, or rustic and comfortable when used in materials like leather and sea grass.
I like to add unexpected pops of color like orange or yellow to a neutral room.
Luckily, there are a wide range of options in neutral colors. Here are a few of my favorites (If I had room, that leather settee in butter yellow would be mine)...
