With the new year around the corner, designers are warmly welcoming a new decade in home design and, with that, a new love for serene combinations of softly muted neutrals. This human and earthy palette creates the perfect clean canvas for energizing pops of color, sophisticated matte blacks and unique architectural elements. Texture takes on an important role within this mood board, blending natural aesthetics, Nordic simplicity, rounded forms and warm metals. Today’s neutrals are transitional and hearty with undertones like pewter, mauve, stone, charcoal, lilac, blue and rust. Layering these colors, along with rich textures and natural elements, can help people feel engaged, included and healthy in a serene space.
