So Real Homes: creating a neutral, Nordic living room

It's not all about colour and pattern – Instagram influencer Dee Campling explains how a transient decorating scheme using neutral colours can be highly successful

living room with neutral scheme

We are so used to seeing dark moody colours and maximalist interiors that we forget how beautiful simple, neutral schemes can be. What's more, a neutral scheme allows you to update your room over time, and acts as the perfect backdrop for eclectic accessories.

If you love a white living room but want to make sure you create a room that feels cosy and interesting, you have come to the right place. As part of our So Real Homes series, looking around the homes of Instagram influencers, interior designer Dee Campling talks Sian Astley through the style choices in her living room. She also explains how even in a family home, pale colours can be a safe choice. And, shows how the design works perfectly in a living room with wooden floorboards.
