Neutral interiors can create a calm and tranquil vibe at home, where natural light bounces around the room and fills the space with effortless elegance and warmth.

Today, homeowners are gearing towards neutral colour schemes as they offer a classic and timeless feel, evoking a sense of space and creating the perfect blank canvas to build upon. There are many ways to create neutral interiors, a lot of designers use several shades within the same hue and mix finishes to create visual interest.

If your neutral look feels a little lack lustre, you may be overlooking basic interior design principles such as scale, balance, and texture. Often an afterthought, Texture is one of the most important elements of interior design, a room without texture can often feel shallow and two-dimensional.

The easiest way to inject texture and warmth into your space is by rolling out a rug. In this article, we explore rug options that can rejuvenate your abode for winter.



White rugs
