How to use neutral colors like a pro

Neutral color palettes are especially effective with floral designs and nature-inspired decoration patterns, like branches and leaves. Multi-layered decorative fabrics of the same smoky gray, cool-beige, and off-white tones work beautifully for fresh and modern interior design and decor. Using delicate materials, like veil, lace, sheer fabrics, and clear or frosted glass are excellent choices for decor accessories that perfectly complement the seasonal joy.
