Today I have for you a casual and neutral home tour. Sometimes casual and neutral is more soothing than bright and colorful. I love this home.
This is a family that doesn’t want to sacrifice their sophisticated style in order to accommodate children. So they found a compromise.
French Colonial chairs and a beige couch and ottoman sets the neutral tone for this home. They prefer an eclectic mix of furniture and use accessories for a dose of color.
They chose off-white neutral walls and added patterned throw pillows and artwork. Their furnishings echo a traditional but somewhat eclectic style.
They have two living spaces, having converted a bedroom.
Straw floor pillows/cushions are a casual but portable seating solution. It also hides an imperfect fireplace.
When something is distracting and ugly and you can’t remove it, I say cover it up!
The small round table in the living room is flanked by two rattan chairs. A window seat provides extra seating.
This is a great way to style a small space. The window seat was a perfect way to add seating to the table without taking up more room.
Wood-toned furniture gleam in the light from the window.
A dark book shelf displays white pitchers for contrast and interest.
They also eschewed white kitchen cabinets for the original wood, and chose black for their counter tops.
A table has been brought in to use as an informal island for extra storage as well as a work surface space for preparing food.
This is the extra bedroom they’ve turned into a living space. This room was chosen because of its sunny exposure.
The pop of green perks up the small room, and is the soothing color of nature.
I hope you enjoyed this home tour.
