~adding easy color to neutral rooms~

I'm sure you all know by now that I love me some neutrals.
What you might not know is that I also love color, and every now and then I crave it.
Not wanting to do anything drastic or permanent, heres a easy way to add color to your neutral decor for next to nothing.

Colorful books. Here I mixed new decor books with colorful bindings with vintage books with a more toned down palette.

Look no further than nature for a little bit of color. My grandpa used to grow dahlias and every time I see them, I think of him and smile.

Here is my whole coffee table set up. Loving my new velvet pumpkins from here!

And lastly, pillows. I am a pillow hoarder. It's such an easy solution for updating a room on a dime. All of these pillows {grain sacks} are from my friend Maria at Dreamy Whites.

On the other side of the sectional there is a red striped grain sack. Love them all, and this little bit of color makes me so happy!

Yes, those books look gorgeous on your table. The muted colors are so pretty.

I'm going to try my hand at making some velvet pumpkins. I need to get started! I love the pillows as well!


Love the vintage books added in....any news about your baby? Can't stop thinking about you.

Love the colors of the books. You have an old copy of My Book House. We have a newer old set that is white with pastel colors on the side and even though my kids don't read them any more I can't part with the beauty of the books.

With our two dogs, black cat and two kids, I don't think we could ever pull off as much white and muted colors as you have. It is lovely. Thinking good thoughts for you and your dog.
