Neutral Accents

In Decorating, Fashion on April 12, 2010 at 7:45 am

Lately, I’ve been really into neutral fashion accessories, especially shoes and purses. So it got me thinking about neutral accents for the home. I usually post on bright and colorful interiors, but boho-luxe can be done in earth tones also-the trick is to vary the textures of the accessories. Here I’ve compared a few accessories for the home to their closet counterpart.

I love Moroccan Poufs-they add such a fun layer to a room. This particular one in Neutral with Olive Stitching is a great accent. The leather adds an element of edge and masculinity-just like your trusty leather bomber jacket.

This striped wool pillow adds a soft touch to any room. These would look so great on a leather sofa. the wool although soft, still adds an interesting texture-this would be like a great scarf in your wardrobe.

I love these African baskets. The patterns are so intricate that they add enough pop to a room even without color.  Think of the basket as a great Bottega handbag.

Boxes are also very versatile accessories. I love anything in horn. I liken the horn boxes to a great pair of glossy neutral strappy sandals that go with everything.

These agate trays are like the jewelry of the room. A wonderful neutral with the slightest hint of color and smooth texture.


Friday Favorites

Fridays make me happy and so do these… It’s time for Friday Favorites- an ever evolving  inspiration collage of what I’m loving, craving, reading, seeing…

Steven Alan’s Ella Skirt in Ikat-my new favorite purchase-makes me feel like I’m on vacation.

Monica Pean‘s Pink Tourmaline Bib Necklace-such a beautiful bold statement piece. Imagine it with a crisp white button down and boyfriend jeans to keep it casual.

Love the rustic beams, the fireplace, the different patterns, and the global feel of this room.

Cy Twombly‘s New Ceiling Installation in the Salle De Bronzes at the Louvre.

Not typical Twombly, but still  beautiful
