Is one of your goals this year to craft rooms that relax and renew? You certainly don't have to stick to neutral colors to keep it calm in your home, but if that's a direction you're willing to go, a perfect room to inspire is the elegant, clean, neutral living room seen in Kim and Kyle's Graceful Home tour.
Filled with textures and subtle patterns along with clean lines, it makes the best combination of styles. It just feels so relaxing. It also looks like the kind of space where you can let the important things in a home — like people and pets — be the stars. If this isn't enough color for you, you could use this palette as a jumping-off point for bolder accessories and as a place to come back to if your room's style seems too cluttered or fussy.
