soft with sepia


I am in a bit of a neutral mood today, first the cream ensembles and now sepia tones in rooms. Sepia touches add such a warm and inviting quality to a space. It is one of those earthy and natural colors that is just the perfect touch when you want to add a little bit of cozy to a room-whether is just a couple little touches on the bookshelf or the dominate shade in a room.

I promise my next post will be more colorful!

I can never get enough of pretty neutral spaces. I was just reading in this new interior design book that there are few complications when rearranging a neutral space. It makes sense because you don't have to worry about color balancing. Beautiful post!

I absolutely love the way how Sweedish furniture can make one feel instantly comfortable and at ease. This is the feeling I feel when I look at those pictures. I just want to curl up on that white sofa with a book. Completely delightful!

I don't know if I'll ever be able to completely commit, either way. Maybe I'll settle it one day by having an amazingly-neutral and serene bedroom!
