Embrace natural tones and surface details for a modern take on magnolia…

When it comes to textiles and flooring, beige and neutrals can easily be brushed aside ? accused of playing it safe. But dare to differ and you will be happily rewarded.

The key to getting magnolia right is playing with different tones; from the rust-brown spectrum to cool grey shades ? mixing things up with a variety of finishes and materials along the way. If sticking rigidly to a neutral palette is just not your thing, introduce some indigo blue through accessories for a fresh summer finish.
