Pick your NeutralsWhite. Ivory. Beige. Gray. Nude. Blush. etc.
They go with almost anything, and I recommend using a lot of them. You can even create your entire palette using only neutrals!
If you would like to add color keep this ratio in mind; 80% (or more) neutral tones and 20% (or less) color.
Patterns + texturesLinen. Leather. Corduroy. Floral. Plaid.
Although it can be difficult teaming up textures and patterns, it is so worth it! A general rule of thumb is, avoid repeating the same pattern. Depending on the size of your family, try having one pattern (shapes), or one print (florals), and throw in some texture like a linen or a chunky sweater material.
