whoa neutral nelly…

Neutrals have always been 'in'.  So have rustic elements.  That's why these rooms are killin' it for me today!


Jessica Helgerson


I can't find out, for the life of me, who the designer is, but I found the image on Cote de Texas.


The fabulous Paula Coldiron at Two Ellie.


I could stare at these for hours, dissecting what I love about them.  Has a lot to do with the feel they both give me in my gut. Warm, welcoming, sturdy and great scale.

  1. I agree Bethany!! They are so soft and clean, add the rustic elements and the texture and they become envelopingly warm! xo
