Rooms from the Runway: Neutral Layers
While color is always a wonderful thing in a room, I have to say that layering neutrals in different textures and tones always creates such a soothing space, which is why I’m loving this look from Celine’s 2010 Spring Collection paired with one of my very favorite dining rooms scanned from an older issue of Elle Decor.
Those worn in campaign chairs get me every time! Celine’s runway looks consisted of layers of neutral leathers, suedes, chiffon, and more – this ensemble was just one of many with a similar style. The dining room does the same, layering different wood tones with those leather chairs and neutral accessories to create a simple palette that is all about shape and texture. Without too many colors to distract the eye, the lines on the floor, created by the chairs, inset in the table, the bookshelves, the cabinets… all the way up to the ceiling. We see it all, just like the shapes in the runway look stand out without being highly contrasted. Don’t you just love going back to basics?
