Neutral Accents

In Decorating, Fashion on April 12, 2010 at 7:45 am

Lately, I’ve been really into neutral fashion accessories, especially shoes and purses. So it got me thinking about neutral accents for the home. I usually post on bright and colorful interiors, but boho-luxe can be done in earth tones also-the trick is to vary the textures of the accessories. Here I’ve compared a few accessories for the home to their closet counterpart.

I love Moroccan Poufs-they add such a fun layer to a room. This particular one in Neutral with Olive Stitching is a great accent. The leather adds an element of edge and masculinity-just like your trusty leather bomber jacket.

This striped wool pillow adds a soft touch to any room. These would look so great on a leather sofa. the wool although soft, still adds an interesting texture-this would be like a great scarf in your wardrobe.

I love these African baskets. The patterns are so intricate that they add enough pop to a room even without color.  Think of the basket as a great Bottega handbag.

Boxes are also very versatile accessories. I love anything in horn. I liken the horn boxes to a great pair of glossy neutral strappy sandals that go with everything.

These agate trays are like the jewelry of the room. A wonderful neutral with the slightest hint of color and smooth texture.
