I love this interior for its simplicity, calm, and timelessness. It is styled with natural and sustainable materials, a neutral palette, tactile surfaces and textures that create a harmonious design scheme, as well as with an enviable collection of design pieces.
Here, I am showing you how to recreate this beautiful look at home.

Notice the restrained palette of colors and materials – This provides strict but clear guidelines when deciding what to add or remove in the interior. It’s then easier to layer textures and to effortlessly combine furniture and decorative accents.
The key to making such limited palette work is to go all-in for textures. Take a look again at the interior and pay attention to the numerous tactile elements: Linen, paper cord, jute, wool, paper, wood, stone, cork, etc.
A few black accents add contrast, depth and balance to neutral spaces like this one. To do this Pella chose design pieces that have a timeless appeal; they will never go out of style and will blend in beautifully no matter how her style evolves over time.
And you’ve probably noticed: The place is uncluttered and everything is carefully curated.
Editing down is key to make any home look better instantly. You likely already have nice things around your home, but in a busy, crowded place, they probably don’t have the precedence they deserve. The goal is not to throw out everything, but to make space for what matters.
