This living room, styled by the husband and wife blogging duo behind New Darlings, proves that you can create an inviting space just by using neutral tones. Complementary wood finishes and leather pieces lend warmth and texture to the room, while black and white accessories in mud cloth-inspired patterns add in a subtle dynamism. And to round out the overall laid-back aesthetic, a small collection of plants accessorizes and colors the space. It's far from boring.

Opt for this leather couch as your splurge piece to create a similar neutral aesthetic.
