The trick to a really classical base like this is to create a whole but not like stepping inside to Louis the fourteenth’s. It’s important to siginificantly add some bright colours as a counterpart to the many dark wood (floors and paneling), for example with a light wall, quilt and rug. Cool whites give an extra contrast and are very fresh.
The best in addition to the neutral shades of wood and sand white and taupe tones is to choose one spot colour. Blue is a beautiful classic colour because it is very nice with warm woods such as cherry, oak and mahogany. By playing with different shades of blue and for example to mix pillows with different patterns together, you will get a contemporary atmosphere.
