A Quietly Colorful Home

Some of my favorite spaces incorporate one general color scheme: neutral with a few pops of color. And rarely have I seen the look executed so flawlessly as when I stumbled upon this beautiful family-friendly home at HousetoHome. Care for a peek?:

By far, my favorite space in the home is this bright and cheery kitchen, which is perfectly balanced with white subway tile, industrial elements and vibrant pops of candy-colored hues. It screams style, but also feels lived-in, comfortable and loved. The perfect combination!

In the bedroom, a serene, neutral space is elevated with a quirky photograph and muted neon pillowcases. Proof that even minimalism can showcase a maximum amount of style!

And although I’m always a sucker for subway tile, I love how daring this bathroom looks when paired with bright pops of orange and fuzzy textures. It’s fun and kid-friendly, but will be easy-to-update for years to come should the kids ever tire of the fuzzy navel phase.

So lovely, yes? What do you think of the small doses of color? Too much? Too little? Spill it below!

A Perfect Home

Friends, I do believe I’ve found my perfect home:

From the consistent use of reclaimed wood to the minimalist concrete floors, I’ve fallen hard for this gorgeous Skona Hem home. What’s not to love about wide-planked white ceilings and the perfect blend of rustic and industrial?

Of course, the kitchen is indeed a sight in itself. A soothing, monochromatic color palette is the perfect background for architectural layouts and a singular art piece. (I also have an unhealthy obsession with that sweet little trash can.)

And if you’re not completely convinced that this home is worthy of applause, I present a tiny corner loft with natural light and optimal space planning.

What do you think, friends? Could you see yourself in this stark home?

Dark Walls in Denmark

As much as I love clean, pure, white walls and furnishings, my heart tends to skip a beat when faced with dark, cozy homes. Exhibit A: This comfy getaway in Denmark, as spotted on My Scandinavian Retreat.

Paired with faded patterned textiles, worn leather furnishings and white trim, dark walls seem to rejoice in the lazy days. Can you imagine hibernating here during the dog days of summer or cold winter nights?

Of course, when working with dark walls, warmer elements tend to play nicer — try rustic wooden floor boards, lightweight artwork and minimal furnishings like the ones displayed above.

What do you think, friends? How dark would you go?
