Depending on the style you’re going for, neutrals can be considered monochromatic as well. Add a cozier feel to your living area without destroying your color palette by adding a large rug in a subdued hue. 

Wooden elements paired with large, white furniture make for a statement like no other. If you’re going for this look, avoid anything black or gray to keep the room clean and crisp.
