Inspiration

Decorating with White

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you! It’s been a rough few days with an entire family down with the flu, ugh! Luckily I’ve escaped contagion. #fingerscrossed

I thought I’d ease back into blogging with some winter white inspiration today, continuing the color series started last year. When I refer to color I do consider gray, black, and white as part of the decorating mix, they play a powerful role.

White spaces have been popular for years and instead of being trendy are proving to have staying power as we’re influenced more and more by contemporary looks and Scandinavian design. I’m a huge fan of spaces decorated with a white backdrop or furnishings, the palette is uplifting and soothing at the same time. Here’s a peek at a few favorite looks and why they’re so successful.

White is grounded when partnered with wood, and we’ve all fallen in love with rustic surfaces in the past few years, from floors to cabinets to countertops. Go ahead and mix wood tones, no matching required. Take a cue from these spaces that pull it off well.

Joining the Club: Sheepskin Rugs

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

I find the simplest accessories bring great comfort and this time of year it’s all things furry and fuzzy. We have a small collection of faux fur blankets to drape over the beds or sofas for chilly nights. I do love my Mongolian lambswool pillow cover, and recently I succumbed to the lure of the sheepskin rug.

I originally bought it for the floor but it has made its way to the tufted sofa. This is the spot the kitty prefers now but I love just as much for catching up on magazines or a great read. Ubiquitous? Sure. But I couldn’t care less given how soft it is.

I absolutely love the feel of these rugs, I bought this one a few weeks ago and I’m thinking of one more for my bedroom, they add such a cozy and warm layer in winter.
