Back to basic with neutrals

Paring things down to the basics may be clean and uncomplicated by design, but this sharp, sleek looking doesn’t simply fall back on flat whites to achieve a minimal effect. Warm tan tones are popular thanks to the style’s reliance on natural wood pieces, and other nature-inspired colors like sage green pop up. The uncluttered nature and brightness evoke a sense of calm that many people are missing from their daily lives. After having a tiring day at work, the idea of returning to a home devoid of bulky furniture and clutter feels particularly appealing. The clean but warm design, which focuses on sharp contrasts, whites, naturals and grey makes you feel happy, but not in a kitschy way.
