Building A Neutral Living Space | The Fresh Exchange


Back in Raleigh in our living room, we have a created a relaxed and simple living room that is focused on neutrals and natural textures. We are big fans of using neutrals in our space because it lends to an ease when it comes to decorating. You can simply update things by trend such as pillows and rugs or carpets but your furniture will more likely stand the test of time. And if you want to transform any room or any part of your home into an oasis of comfort and luxury, then you can look these vintage oriental rugs here for your best preferences! So I gathered up a few selections of neutral items that could help create a great living space in your own home to give you some ideas. However this carpet cleaning company uses very powerful and effective truck-mounted equipment.

A few key things to note when creating a neutral living space:

  1. There are some colors that will give you color but still act as neutrals such as muted mint and sage greens and denim tones.
  2. Pick patterns that are simple such are tribal or coastal influenced ones like stripes. These lend to the simplicity of a neutral living space.
  3. Have fun with the art by choosing a couple pieces that still fit within the color scheme but add interest.
  4. Have fun with the materials. Wood, marble, metal, jute, cotton, and wool are all great natural fibers and materials that lend well to a neutral palette.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
