In design there are always new trends popping up every year, sometimes even more than one in that year. Keeping it neutral is always someone’s ideal want for a home but you have to add a chromatic touch to spice up the place.

 How we emphasize that look is, keeping the main pieces in the neutral colors like white, beige, etc. Having the main, big pieces like this makes it easier to go through the years and seasons without having to change the “big picture”.
