I was finding this week to be a rough one. One of those where I’m not sure why, but everyone seems out of sorts. The kids are bickering, my work is behind, the chores are piling up, and the house is a mess (I guess that’s why!) Anyway, I’m trying to focus on the positive today so I put some of my favorite flowers in a pretty pitcher, poured myself a glass of iced coffee and starting looking for design inspiration, both for myself and for a house I’m working on for a client. And just looking at these inspiring spaces makes me happy:) And since I’ve never shared my love for neutrals, I thought I would do just that. I’ve seen some truly beautiful pale colored rooms, but when I say they’re pale, literally – everything in the entire room is white or off-white! I do love an all white, or creamy neutral room, but I think it’s best with at least some color. It doesn’t need a lot. But just a touch of color in some pillows or accessories makes such a difference. And definitely texture! Texture is so essential in a mostly neutral room to bring depth and add interest. These are the rooms that really make my heart skip a beat!
