Besides finding tutorials for the cutest summer French braid hairdos, I often find inspiration for home decor.
If you are super lucky, you stumble upon a professional interior stylist who is willing to share her best tips and tricks. I was drawn to a pin board with the loveliest home decorating pics of neutrals.
Here is Emma Blomfield who replied to my Q&A about her Pinterest Board and personal style.
Emma found an inspiring images for her Classic Beige board:

How did you select pins for your Pinterest board “Classic Beige”?
How do you keep neutrals from being boring when you are setting up an area to entertain?

Yes! I love beige lounge rooms. I think it’s really important to layer different textures of the same tone together, that way you don’t get a boring beige room, you add interest and character to a room with different textures.
When you’re setting up a room for entertaining that could be a knitted throw, a sisal or jute rug, woollen cushion and grasscloth wallpaper, they can all be the same tone but when they are different materials it becomes interesting.
It gives the room depth because there’s so much for the eye to look at and yet it’s soothing and calming.
How do you differ in styling philosophy from competitors who also use beige (i.e. The Elegant Abode of New York City featured in this month’s House Beautiful)?
One thing I tend to do is recommend to clients that they buy the big ticket items (like sofas, armchairs etc) in neutral fabrics so they can layer colour on top of these and they won’t get sick of them as the trends come and go.
