Gold Leaf Glam
Start with a khaki-toned piece of furniture. Then, get inspired by gold-dipped leaves and greenery. Because khaki is a mix of green and gold, you can pull both of the sleek shades and use them separately throughout your space. This will highlight both the green and gold undertones in the khaki furniture/décor.
Black and White Details
Black and white are the perfect addition to a khaki-tinted space. These two classic neutrals will keep your space looking modern, and matte black metallics are ultra-popular for 2022. A white base is the perfect clean slate to add gold and green details without overwhelming your interior. A minimalist space will keep the focus on your trendy tones.
Just because you’re using khaki as a pop of color, doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate other shades of green. In fact, monochromatic spaces are slated to make a massive comeback next year. Make a statement with a green accent wall, and accessorize with gold accents. Your khaki furniture and décor will still remain the star of your space as long as you choose cooler green shades for contrast. 2022 is all about taking chances and being bold with your interior choices.
Earthy and Sophisticated
Even though green is technically a cool color, khaki has enough warmth to warrant a cool neutral base. While designers are slowly moving away from all-gray interiors, that doesn’t mean you have to stray from gray and taupe all together. Try placing unpolished, gray furniture next to organic textiles like wool and wicker. Matte metallic tones are the perfect finishing touch for a perfectly imperfect aesthetic. The classy color palette will make your space look sophisticated, while the carefree feel will enhance the earthiness of the khaki.
Vetiver and Velvet
Khaki has an almost herbaceous appearance. The muted, green color goes with live greenery like a match made in design heaven. There’s nothing richer than velvet in a golden, khaki tone. This antique look is ideal if you want to make your space look rare and refined. Hang a piece of wall art with a gold backdrop, and make sure your room is well-lit to show off your sparkling décor. Be intentional with your surrounding accessories as to not pull attention from the khaki colors in the center of your space.
Serene & Symmetrical
Khaki tones and symmetrical spaces work seamlessly to create an earthy, balanced look. From lighting to seating, make sure your space is well-proportioned. Hang a piece of wall art in the center of your space, with khaki, nature-inspired shades. Surround your artwork anchor with furniture and accessories in khaki colors. Wood is the perfect finishing touch for a Scandinavian-inspired space that still looks unique and refreshing.
