Use A Neutral Palette

Nothing helps to clear your mind better than neutrals.

Designer Grace Castanedo sticks to whites, muddy greys, taupes and black as the backdrop to every room. "Warm whites and earthy neutrals are passive colours and have a soothing effect. And in the country where you are surrounded by fields and forests, you don't want your palette to compete with the outdoors."
