Overview

Think neutrals are beige, cream, taupe, white, and black? Think again. In a new world of color and design, neutrals go beyond these basics to embrace real colors that real people can live with. In Perfect Neutrals, Stephanie Hopper showcases the vast variety of new neutrals—from sage green to soft lilac, from cool silver to whispered gold. With her help, anyone can put these tones together and add accents to create dramatic effects. Rich photographs demonstrate how to balance colors, how layering works with different shades of color, how to add texture with fabric, and more. Case studies feature paint and fabrics that are widely available from such national brands as Restoration Hardware, Benjamin Moore, Farrow & Ball, and other companies. In the past, choosing just the right neutral to suit a room or a mood was hard. Perfect Neutrals makes it easy.
