Blending warm neutrals is a wonderful way to add warmth to a large open-plan space. Choose a creamy shade of off-white for your walls such as linen or natural calico, and use softer browns like mocha and caramel as your feature hues. You could create an eye-catching feature wall or simply use these darker colours as accent colours through accessories and furniture.
Besides layering colour, bringing together different textures and finishes – such as matt walls, glossy floors and sumptuous leather – will help you build up layers of comfort in the room.
Contrasting your pale walls with furniture in rich, dark tones is a clever way of defining the different areas of your open-plan space. Anchor the look with textured soft furnishings, like a sisal rug or soft cashmere throw.
