Today I’m sharing 20 neutral home decor items – from teak barstools and chunky jute rugs to wooden hamper baskets and textured pillows – that can add brightness and style to any room.
If you’ve been following KERF over the years, you may remember that my previous decor style included much more color. (I painted my first living room bright orange! All four walls!)
But, what I’ve come to realize is that I really love a neutral, natural home.
My style ranges from black and white modern, to shades of gray and coastal blue to accents of gold, I’ve decided for the base of my home, I love natural, textured furniture and decor through and through.
Natural is usually neutral and textured, the perfect combo for a muted palette that changes with the seasons.
The entry table that looks good with all decorations from spring to holidays, and the light woods that add richness to the room.
I love natural wood mixed with rattan and seagrass and seaglass and marble and burlap. I’ve realized that, just like a good salad, texture is what brings out the best in decor.
I’d say my home style is a melody of modern farmhouse with a touch of mid-century modern and coastal accents.
These light colored eco-chic baskets would be perfect for so many uses: laundry, toys, blankets next to your sofa, extra pillows. I love that they come in a set of three for continuity.
This classic 100% cotton throw goes with any neutral couch and keeps the neutrals going itself.
Not only are these trays useful for serving food, but they can even be used in the bathroom or living room as efficient storage decor (you know how much I love efficiency!).
This is our living room rug – people ask me all the time where it is from! It’s easy to disguise dirt and dog hair and very comfortable for sitting and playing.
These versatile barstools have some rustic/beachy charm; I love the combo of the graywashed teakwood and woven seat.
If you don’t have a green thumb, but like the freshness that plants add to a room, this faux fiddle leaf fig plant, in a natural basket, makes any plant seem cozy.
I can see Mazen and Birch playing at this table now. It’s light, bright, and the white powder-coated metal hairpin legs add a fun retro look!
You can never have too many baskets!!! These water hyacinth bins or cubes come in a variety of sizes and are so versatile when it comes to storing all the things – think toys, books, winter hats and scarves, you name it!
A great price for a farmhouse table! This dining table is simplistic and rustic; since it’s a large piece of furniture, it adds a bunch of brightness to your eating space.
I love the warmth this console would add to an entry. It’s almost like a workbench – I love the shape!
These light oak picture frames with white matting are clean, classic, and would add lightness to a photo collage on your wall.
This modern chair definitely says mid-century modern. I love the warm distressed finish on the wood and light upholstery – great for a reading nook or guest room.
This one is a bit darker than the rest, but I like that it combines wood and a textured front. Hide all your devices or entertaining pieces inside!
This square ottoman pouf combines a unique variety of textures – from tufts to tassels to beads – to create a lively look. Yet, I love that’s it’s very light and natural in color so you can move it around from room to room.
This beautiful white marble and wood cutting board would be great for appetizers on the our porch – it’s perfect for serving small bites with happy hour! (I wouldn’t want to chop onions on it – too pretty!)
