Sophisticated Neutrals

For a sophisticated interior style, go for neutral colors like cream, beige or greige, contrasted by brown or black. Keep the background and larger surfaces neutral, with the darker contrast confined to smaller pieces of furniture like coffee tables and furniture framing. Choose few larger quality (or what looks like it) pieces rather than a lot of small ones. Go for texture rater than pattern. Here are a few examples:

Creams, soft beige and dark wood. I find it a bit quirky they have used the fire place to store wood in. Curtains hung real high to emphasize the height of the room.

Layering seems to be key here; layered mirrors, maps on wall and stacks of books. Even so, it manages to stay simple and sophisticated, due to the simple choise of colors.
