6 Gorgeous Neutral Decor Ideas for Your Home

I’m a fan of a good dose of color in the home. Though lately I’ve been gravitating toward neutral tones. I find the low-key hues comforting to chill in after being out for a while in this sometimes way overstimulating world. So I’ve rounded up 6 beautiful examples of how to do neutral decor, if you’d like to see. There’s a real specialness to a soft mellow kitchen with a vintage French vibe (above), don’t you think? And this vanity space…Oh my gosh. Just a hint of color really does the trick without the overkill. And this darling nursery… A dining nook ripe for Sunday morning newspaper reading over a pot of coffee and pastries, yeah? There’s no way I could feel anything but calm in this peaceful bedroom… For an added treat, these charming ceramics well suited for an extended brunch among good friends and conversation… Calming as heck.

Dream Home / The Dreamy Paris Apartment of Sézane Founder Morgane Sézalory

I’m just about excessively drooling over here after having a peek into the dreamy Paris home of Sézane Founder Morgane Sézalory. It’s styled in such a way that is exquisite while also mastering a low-key effortless vibe. Light, airy, welcoming, and the loveliest art so nonchalantly displayed that it can’t help but become a part of the life existing around it. And vice versa.  And get a look at that lamp, bedside (above). I’ve never felt like I’ve needed something as much as I do that beauty. Sigh. And the thoughtfully orchestrated kitchen/family room layout is so wonderful, don’t you think? But really what I most adore about this home is the love that seems to emanate from it. I encourage you to read + see the entire home tour over on Cup of Jo. It’ll make your day, I promise.

I like mixing metal features into the home, but too much of it bums me out. Balancing the elements with a touch of gold, silver, or copper can give a room levity, however. It’s just a matter grounding the space with a clustering of metal without being too overbearing. And then, voila! You’ve got yourself a perfectly happy dose of reflective light. Thought this copper edge mirror DIY would be a good project to get you started (you can also try gold or silver). Plus it’s super easy… [ full diy via the makers society ]
