Simply Neutral Decor

I don’t know about you (but I’m feelin’ 22 – ha! jk that Taylor Swift song popped into my head while typing that). Seriously, though… I don’t know about you but I cannot wait for Spring! I feel like I just mentioned that in my previous post but really the snow scene is getting old and I’m sick of being cooped up. (Coop-ed! Haha that’s an inside joke between my husband and I because our little beagle pup’s name is Cooper and we often call him Coop for short.) 🙂

Anyways, I’ve been cleaning and organizing a lot around here so am keeping things pretty neutral around here with my decor.

These pinecones add a natural touch.

I added a boxwood wreath and twigs for more natural elements…

and faux cotton stems because… well, just because I love them! I’ve been seeing them a lot on my favorite HGTV show, Fixer Upper. That Joanna Gaines sure does have fabulous style! 🙂

Winter Grey

This month has been crazy! We’ve gotten around 6 feet of snow in the last month. I’m so glad we’re halfway through February because we’re that much closer to Spring!

As if there wasn’t enough grey outside, I decided to change out our curtains in our dining area with grey and white stripes. I’ve been really liking the striped curtain trend I’ve seen in several retailer’s catalogs lately. Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, West Elm to name a few. They looked beautiful. But price… well, not so much. I was wandering the aisles of HomeGoods one day and spotted these beauties! There they were at a much more reasonable price and looked just as good as the ones at the other stores.

What do you think? Here’s a photo from my Fall Home Tour with the plain white curtains. I like how the grey and white stripes give a little extra added interest to the space.
