We love color. You know we do. Vibrant oranges and daring reds, soft lilacs and pretty pinks. Ocean blues and vivid greens. And pretty much everything in between. But day after day, year after year, post after post, neutrals capture our hearts again and again like nothing else. (Well, except maybe those puppies…) Neutrals are dependable, stable and always chic. And, while it’s good to mix it up, it’s always good to know that you can land right back in neutral territory.
Erin Martin Design We can’t think of anywhere we’d rather stash our towels and toiletries.
And for keeping kitchen necessities at arm’s reach, baskets are a winning choice.
Brooke Gianetti For us, they are one more great way to sneak in a fantastic neutral with great texture.

Speaking of being basket cases…
We’re moving into the Beaufort house this week! Woo hoo! If we’re a little slack on our posts this week please forgive us. We’ll keep you updated with lots of progress pics. We hope your week is wonderful!
When designing the rooms where we live the most, it’s all about a fabulous sofa.
For a sleek, room-defining look that’s the ultimate in sophistication, nothing beats a tufted couch.
We love the open legs and compact look of this beautiful loveseat.
But for a room where you plan to do a lot of living, something deep and comfortable fits the bill!
William Hodgins Design We generally think of tufted tufted couches for manly, hunt-inspired rooms like this one…
Phoebe Howard But a sweet shape and precious pleated skirt give this staple a totally different look!
Greige Design So often, tufted sofas are featured in dark leathers, but this light, juicy eggplant is a fun, fresh take that is oh so springy!
Thibaut Design A neutral is never finer than in this tailored, constructed look. The fantastic shape adds loads of interest to a simple fabric.
Decorpad Tufted sofas are better when they’re L-O-N-G! We would love to pile the whole family on here with a little popcorn for a fun (and sophisticated!) movie night!
This room is made for getting ready in the most leisurely fashion! We think Audrey would totally approve!

Change the fabric and change the look. This comfy fabric tones down the glamour for a place we would love to curl up in front of a roaring fire with a good book! Would you like a tufted sofa, or is the look too — well — buttoned up?!
A light, crisp, beachy feel for a light, crisp, beachy day! Open yet warm, modern yet refined, we think these pictures from Tracery Interiors offer plenty of inspiration for any home. We hope you’ll agree that all of their picks are in good taste.
Happy, happy Monday, friends! We hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!
