Neutrals? This is for you Meg.

I'm not afraid of color.  Our last 2 houses were full of it, and I loved them, but as time has gone on, I'm really beginning to love and appreciate neutrals, with pops of color.  Here are some examples I have found really inspiring.

 I love how people are warming up modern, clean spaces with natural elements, and those grey bookshelves are amazing!  I would have styled them out with some color, but the neutrals really work in the space, and the pop of orange  in the fruit bowl is just what the space was calling for.

Again, neutral chalkboard paint, with the graphic striped rug, punch of orange and the natural wicker basket.  Really pretty.

I'm really into turquoise at the moment!  This space speaks for itself.

Gotta love that yellow door.  I have my brothers house all planned out whenever he'll let me re-do the exterior!  :)

 I really like how neutral, natural elements are the pop off of a black wall.

A collection of vintage textiles can be just what a room needs.  I love this.

Love how she hung the picture on the textile.

White as the pop of color!

The orange and blues still seem neutral in this space, but add a lot of warmth.

The fluorescent in the very classic space are really attractive.

This space really speaks to me.  The antique armoire reminds me of a Chinese red one I have, the desk and placement of it are beautiful.  All the stars placed throughout, and of course the pops of color are just lovely.  I might throw a punch of color on the floor.  Such a beautiful space.

Nice dressing area!

I hope you enjoyed a look into how neutral doesn't have to be boring!

Get your hands dirty...

I love this new interactive art poster via Roland Tiangco for quite a few reasons.  I love the message, and if you click on the link you can see how the poster comes to life.  But I love hands, my little girls hands are so sweet and say so much about her day, and as she grows older, her life.  My husbands are worn and rugged from his willingness to get his hands dirty.  I could go on and on (I won't as to not seem ridiculous), but I love hands whether it is a surgeon or an artist they are all beautiful and contribute so much to our lives. Thanks hands, for all you help me do!  :)
