Urban, earthy & au naturel, these stunning spaces accomplish their balance and sophistication through the layering of textures, keeping color scheme to a minimum and incorporating organic and monochromatic accents. If you are designing a monochromatic color scheme based on neutrals, it works well to tailor your neutral scheme to harmonize with the neutral colors that already exist in the room. Think natural furnishings, monochromatic accents, wood furniture, burls, sea-grass planters, cane Hoffmann dining chairs and an influence of the outdoors.

Alex Reid of One Kings Lane Top Tips to Get the Look
- “Keep your color palette to a minimum, and bring in details through texture.”
- “Use contemporary light fixtures juxtaposed with more-traditional furnishings—it creates that cool mix.”
- “Layer your rugs. I do this in every project—it’s comfortable and chic.”
- “Pop your neutral upholstery pieces with black. We used this in the art and lamps, and it helps give a stronger edge to your design and keeps it fresh!”
