There is always a time and a place for a splash of creative color or a spread of wild pattern that seeps over the corner of a couch or underneath a coffee table on an area rug. But sometimes electric colors and bright bold patterns just dont fit with the subdued personality of a space, or of that spaces inhabitants. The five homes in this post, each visualized by Stanislav Borozdinskiy, use neutral colors , natural materials, and soft textures throughout their designs. For some, this might be a perfect blank canvas on which to express oneself through art, rugs, or throw pillows. For others, the zen-like atmosphere of soft grays and creams are all the excitement they need.
