Neutral Living Ideas

Classic, minimalist, contemporary. There are so many ways to describe neutral living spaces and so much potential for looks that can be achieved.

There is a Sofas and Stuff sofa, chair, bed or footstool for everyone as well as a neutral fabric to suit every look. Life (and children) will throw a variety of things at your furniture but even a mother of many + husband with a penchant for slopping the red wine* can have her dream neutral sofa. Oh yes, we’ve tested this theory extensivly! *Disclaimer: No offence to the men out there. We secretly know we are just as capable of a red wine spill or two!

Neutral living spaces can be the epitome of calm and cosy or they can be clean thinking spaces for those that are all systems go, all the time. So without further ado, let us show you a few of our ideas.

Our Aldeburgh sofa in a mix of Romo Linara fabrics (one of our favourite cotton/linen blends) gives the perfect example of a neutral living space that is full of winter warmth. Wood paneling is natures neutral and the brushed finish on the fabric is so super snuggly you would be happy hibernating here until spring. The texture softens the whole look, no cool minimalist styling here. Just a look that will grow with your family’s needs – loose covers are an added bonus with lighter colours!

Perhaps this is more the look you imagined when we said ‘neutral living spaces’. For us, this is a modern classic. The Haresfield has hints of a traditional Chesterfield sofa with it’s beautifully hand-buttoned back but is sleek and contemporary with it’s squared off arms. Looking fresh in a textured linen, we can see this lasting a lifetime. Pop in the kitchen as we have or snuggle up in the snug. This is a versatile design that’s perfect for a blank canvas.

A corner sofa is a great solution for family feuds. There is a place for everyone and everyone has their place on the Wadenhoe corner sofa. A family sofa will require a bulletproof fabric (see above!) and we would recommend a stain-resistant velvet, like our Portland or Rockall. Go as light as you like to tie in with our neutral living space theme, safe in the knowledge that you can wipe your sofa clean of any spills.

We love this season’s trend for charcoal greys and regency blues and think they tie in perfectly with our neutral living spaces theme. The bedroom is a great place to introduce these sultry tones, with the addition of a neutral, linen bed like the Rouen. Period design, pulled into the 21st century.

Our Pinterest and Instagram pages are full of inspiration from neutral living spaces to the whole rainbow for interior delights! Our Facebook and Twitter pages are another great way to keep up to date with the delights we are creating along with top trends and the things that are inspiring our other followers.
