2. Natural Woods. Create a light and neutral touch with wood surfaces.

3. Layers of Neutral Textures. Textiles over coverlets, sheepskins on chairs, Moroccan rugs over jute. You can break up the beige canvas with other textures and shades so the eye is never bored. 

4.  Earthy Coastal Accessories. Go neutral with  nature-inspired accents, earthy accessories bring warmth to the room.

5. Muted Master. Creamy white coastal covers and bedding always create a luxurious feel. Keep your master bedroom neutral with just a simple pop of color in an accent chair, throw pillow or lamp.

6. White Slipcover Seating. A white slipcover sofa provides a blank canvas for patterned pillows. If neutral’s the goal, don’t go overboard with bright prints. Stick to quieter tones. Going neutral doesn’t have to mean boring walls. Search for colorless art such as this natural framed ship print or a driftwood seahorse.

8. Off White Walls. Off-white walls can absorb a lot of art without looking chaotic. This is the perfect canvas to display a collection of art or your favorite seashell specimens.
