Nude Neutrals

Whilst crisp white and grey is timeless and still very much in vogue, I couldn’t resist a peek at nude and natural interiors for inspiration.

Think flesh tones, biege, sand, taupe and even warm mushroom. Subtle tones of pink create soft elegance in nude hues.

Pair with pastels or leave the natural textures to do the talking. Combine luxurious linens, knitted threads and smooth surfaces for a layered effect at home. Select a nude base for kitchen cabinetry and give a modern update with brass tapware and a marble splashback. Or source loose linen bedding in different shades of biege, paired with taupe walls and white accents in the bedroom.

There is really no limit to where you can use this palette – it’s versatile, timeless, sophisticated and more. Pair with Danish furnishings and sheer drapes for a contemporary look that won’t date or opt for a classic scheme with a traditional style sofa and armchair, mixed in with a tiered coffee table.

My go-to rules for nude neutrals;

1. Combine different shades of nude and pair with crisp white to break it up.

2. Add texture to layer nude pieces. There is no such thing as too much texture in a cohesive space.

3. Let the neutrals shine and avoid too much colour. Leave the brights for another day.
