These timeless colours will stop any neutral interior from feeling flat

When it comes to your neutrals for 2018, off-whites are anything but banal. Think Out Of Africa, sun-baked dunes, all the romantic beauty of the desert. Paired with a palette of forest greens and safari-esque khaki, finished with hints of copper, gold and ochre, it’s an adventurous way to add tonal variation and bring warmth to your home.

How to get your neutral pairing right

+ Take inspiration from nature’s earthy tones and bring in shades from the beach, bush and desert to create a palette full of warmth and life.

+ Resene wallpaper adds both tone and texture to living spaces, whether used as a feature wall next to a complementary Resene paint colour or as a statement throughout the room.

+ Opting for neutral-toned yet lightly textured furnishings such as linen, suede and velvet will help to balance a printed wallpaper.

+ Whitewashed woods help to bring light into your living areas and pair well with almost any colour palette.

+ This light and white neutral is the perfect base on which to add earthy colour pops such as forest green, cedar and dusty tans.
