“So in other words, it looks like winter.”
This was the response I once received after I got done saying that I don’t like to decorate with a lot of color in my home. I tried to explain that I like neutral colors, wood accents, lots and lots of texture, and that my walls are all shades of white, gray or beige…
White. Gray. Beige.
I suppose that does sound a bit like winter, doesn’t it? 😀
But unlike the cold, bleak, and dreary days often associated with the winter season, I think a “winter” color palette can create the exact opposite of cold, bleak and dreary when used indoors. I feel like our house might even be looking its coziest right now.
For whatever reason, I’m loving old book pages at the moment – is there really ever a time when old book pages aren’t fabulous? – so I left the open books that I used for Christmas in our farmhouse plate rack, and added a couple textured throw pillows and a soft plaid throw to the bench to warm up my favorite little corner of this room.
The birch bark votive holders and simple green wreaths that were on the table for Christmas stayed put too.
I’m so glad you all loved our cute little farmhouse cabinet as much as we do. I may or may not have sat on that bench and just stared at it for a while (a very long while) when we moved it into the room. 🙂
A rustic lantern, wood candlesticks and a small pop of green brighten the top.
Did I mention I love cotton stems for winter?
I did, didn’t I?
Such a great contrast against that rusty old ale pot. Gives me all the heart eyes.
Winter, spring, summer or fall – I can’t help but think that a winter color scheme suits this house quite well. 😀
Stay cozy, friends!
