Sepia-Toned Decor: Natural, Neutral, & Never-Boring

Sepia-Toned Decor: Natural, Neutral, & Never-Boring

My tastes tend to err toward bright colors and eye-shocking patterns, but lately, I've been drawn to rooms filled with soft creams, ivories, coppers, and browns. Even with a limited palette, these rooms still delight, upsetting an adage that I had come to accept: namely, that beige is boring.

The key to decorating in such a restricted palette is in the mixture of shapes, textures, and styles. These rooms are all eclectic, despite their adherence to a single part of the color spectrum. These interiors also show just how much style diversity you can have with a single palette.
