Working with a neutral color scheme can be tough. How do you pull this look off without coming across as boring or bland? The key is keeping the color palette lively while maintaining neutral shades in the combination. It also doesn’t hurt to add a pop of warmth with an accent color in the room.
This masculine living room from the TRNK furniture catalog is a great example of this. I love the gray walls with black and white accent pieces and the rustic oak flooring is simply stunning in this setting. The cool tones and sleek finishes of the room contrast beautifully with the rough texture and warm tones of the oak. I’m totally in love with the modern side chair in this design. But, that modern white sofa is also a beauty.
These are the pieces I used to create the Masculine Living Room mood board above…

Now that I’ve talked about my favorite parts of this design, let’s take a closer look at the details. If you’re a fan of dhurrie rugs, you’re going to love this woven rug in ochre. The black coffee table, bronze pillows, large glass vase and framed wall art all come together to create a beautifully curated interior design.
