Project pop of color

There's no denying that when it comes to decorating I'm a lover of neutrals.
Sometimes it is me playing it safe because I have a fear of investing in brightly colored pieces only to grow tired of them too quickly. 

But mostly it's just that I find a neutral palette soothing and timeless. 

That's not to say I don't love color. 
I swear I do!
In fact, while recently helping a friend who isn't afraid of color decorate a few of her living spaces (most recently her kitchen nook), I've become inspired to add some pops of color in our kitchen nook.

I'm realizing that it will be easy to do without making drastic expensive changes.
Here's my plan...

1. Add new colorful throw pillows to the built-in seat.

These are in my shopping cart. 
I'm just waiting for Chris to look the other way before buying them (shhh).


2. Add color to the large jars on the built-in shelves.

Wasabi peas will add some green to the area.
Now, where to buy enough wasabi peas to fill my gigantic jar?


3. Throw some cloth napkins with color into the wire baskets on the built-ins.

I like these ones (and they're on sale!):

West Elm

 4. Frame a print with color in it.

I can swap out the chalkboard monogram print currently on the shelf with a print with green in it like this one below.


I hope to share these changes with you soon!

  1. I totally get what you mean. I tend to stick to the same colors all throughout the house. It's fun to switch things up with a few colorful accessories.

  2. I love white houses! They look so neat and clean!


I appreciate all of your comments! If you have a question, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
