There is no denying my love of neutral spaces has grown over the years. There is something so timeless and elegant about a space layered in neutral tones and textures. Add beautiful worn elements, like wood, stone and antique pieces and you’re likely to see me salivating. Today’s Inspired Interiors feature, Neutral Love, is just such a space. Designed by homeowner Sheila Bouttier, this home is a lesson in working in a neutral palette with black accents that keep the home from feeling boring. Truly one of my favourite home tours to date.
2020 has disrupted the way we live in so many ways, from how we socialize, work and learn to where we live. For some of us, the shelter in place mandates had us re-evaluating the space we call home. For many the lack of outdoor space or a functional workspace became glaringly obvious. For others fluctuating markets and employment uncertainty had us putting plans to upgrade our homes on hold. Given all of this, it wasn’t entirely shocking to see so many people take on home improvement projects to enhance the efficiency and function of their home.
I don’t typically decorate my place for Halloween. Mostly because I’m a chicken and don’t like scary things! But I can appreciate the creativity others bring to their homes during the season. Especially those that create spaces that still feel elegant and elevated. I’ve rounded up some of my favourites in case you’re looking for a little last minute inspiration.
