WHITE....I feel like for a long time white got a bad rep of being “boring” or “not creative enough”, but let me tell you, when done right, white is ANYTHING, but boring. Trust me! There will still be the people that ask if the exterior of our house is being primed (lol). And when I told our interior painters I wanted everything white they looked at me like I had a 3rd eye!
But when done correctly white gives you room to breathe, feels clean, calm, peaceful, etc. You learn the beauty of mixing subtle patterns, various textures & creating a neutral palette for your entire home.
I think the “secret” is to have a variety of textures, patterns that compliment, but don’t compete with each other. So I’ve broken it down to some of my favorite things to pair together to create the perfect serene & calm living room or bedroom.
BLANKETS. Soft blanket with subtle texture- There are so many good options out there! Fur, fringe, ones made from chunky yarn! You can drape this on the back of a chair, put it in a basket or fold it at the end of the bed!
BASKETS. I love baskets- they are an easy and inexpensive way to add interest & dimension to a room. You can get them in a variety of sizes! I got THIS ONE from one of my favorite home decor shops- House of Margo! It comes in 2 different sizes. I also have this one from Amazon that I use to coral (hide) all sorts of things throughout the house! PILLOWS. I know you are shocked lol. But really, pillows really pull a space together to put the “finishing touch” on any room! I have gathered some of our favorite neutrals to create different combos! Including THIS fur one (Pre-order now!). We combine mud cloth with our swiss dot and subtle herringbone texture- it’s just all SO fun to see how well they compliment each other and can also compliment pillows you already have on hand!
ART. I’m not going to lie this is one I struggle with A LOT. Art is so personal and subjective and like pillows really does tie a room together. I recently discovered that LINDSEY LETTERS does beautiful abstract paintings! You can customize the size, frame, etc. Lindsey’s family recently had a horrible tragedy with her daughter Eva that you can learn more about on her Instagram. I love being able to support another mom boss especially during such an emotional and financial taxing time. I bought THIS piece from here last month, and can’t wait to add this piece to my collection too!
POUFS/ OTTOMANS. These are a perfect addition to a room! They can double as a foot rest or extra seating. Plus they are an easy and affordable way to be “trendy”! You can score these pretty much anywhere from Pottery Barn to Homegoods to Amazon! Here are a couple of Amazon favs! MISC. DECOR: These little pieces are what can help put a finishing touch on a room. Here are a few affordable and fun accents that I’m loving on shelves, tables and styled around my home!
