Luxury in Neutral

By Kat La Mantia | November 8 2023 | GiftBlogAdultsGeneralAll

When it comes to high-end interior design, neutrals reign supreme. Prominent in popular décor trends ranging from organic modern to Scandinavian to minimalism and more, neutral tones create a soothing palette that lends a sense of calm to your home while also providing a background for pops of color and style to make maximum impact. Unlike Kim Kardashian’s notoriously stark California home suggests, you don’t need to go full paper white void to harness the power of neutrals. Warmer beige and taupe colors are pulling ahead of cold whites and grays that can feel too clinical. Warm neutral hues mimic the tones of natural materials like wood and stone, fitting in nicely with the trend towards more eco-conscious and organic interior design styles.

Beautiful, large-format coffee table books are the perfect accent to a thoughtfully designed home, adding a luxe finish to any table or shelf. The right coffee table book is an easy way to add style and personality to your space while creating a conversation piece for guests. With our curated collection of luxurious books featuring neutral covers, you can add a unique touch to your home without worrying about clashing with a color palette. Explore some of our favorites from Dior, Kelly Wearstler, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tom Ford, and more!
