Soft, neutral tones can be seriously striking when it comes to wedding and event styling. We love a pared-back palette using simple earthy shades inspired by nature.
To help you bring this look to life, keep reading as we share some of our top tips on styling with neutrals, from furniture suggestions to mood boards and real-life event inspiration!
Neutral Tones: Furniture and Decor
It’s all about layering neutral shades like timber, beige, sand, cream and oatmeal for an effortless natural look. Keep things minimal with a monochromatic palette, but add contrast using different textures and materials.
For a sit-down reception, we love our oak cross back chairs or natural Indie dining chairs paired with our solid timber feasting tables. Create a lush layered tablescape with soft oatmeal napkins, rattan charger plates, grey or white dinner plates, gold cutlery and crystal glassware.
For cocktail styling, be inspired by timber and rattan furniture with a hint of white for a striking neutral look (go for pale timbers as opposed to darker walnuts). We love our round timber dry bars paired with white bentwood stools, styled with our Indie and Dune lounge furniture. Or, opt for our Bahamas dry bars, bamboo cafe tables and white director chairs for a more coastal/tropical feel (perfect for a beachfront wedding venue). Complete your neutral styling with a statement bar and luxe backdrop in timber, white or gold!

Neutral Tones: Florals and Styling
Continue your monochromatic palette through to your floral elements too – we love oversized dried foliage installations in subtle earthy tones along with soft, creamy blooms. Use neutral vases in shades of white, grey, oatmeal or gold for statement table arrangements. We also love rattan, basket or shell pendant lights for a lush textural look. Neutral tones can also be incorporated in everything from your stationery details to your cake design – keep things simple, soft and effortless for the perfect neutral setting!
