My personal design esthetic definitely leans towards traditional lines with a touch of glam and thoughtful pops of colour. But I must say, there is something beautiful and elegant about a room layered in neutrals. They are fresh and crisp, creating a relaxed and comfortable vibe. But without careful intention, it’s easy to slip into ho-hum beige on cream on beige. So I’m sharing three keys to creating a captivating neutral interior.
This year I made the conscious decision to work through summer, I have a number of exciting projects slated and wanted to give myself permission to put everything else (think: travel, lazy afternoons spent on patios through out the city, and getting out to the mountains) on hold. I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been challenging, but the fruits of my labour so to speak have been worth it and I have some amazing content and project reveals coming soon.
But until then, if like me you’re working through the summer, let’s live vicariously through this weeks Inspired Interiors feature, a stunning lake house on Ontario’s Lake Rosseau. Tunneling hallways covered in beadboard, a boathouse that is literally on the water and a colour palette that if you read last week’s Colour Crush post, you’ll know I love.
I’m often asked about the Prosecco in the name of this blog (and my now company) – simply put it’s a representation of joy and celebration. A gentle reminder to follow and nurture our bliss and celebrate, not just the extraordinary, but the seemingly ordinary moments in life as well. It serves a symbol for one of my greatest joys: travel, while conjuring memories of one of my favourite places: Italy.
Fruitier, lighter and less scary to open (it’s bottled at a lower pressure) than Champagne, it’s a humble representation of what I hope to inspire here.
