Colorful Home Details

Colorful Home Details

It’s funny how when you start your decorating process, you think you know exactly what you want (or at least I did!) And then you start actually decorating and things don’t necessarily turn out how you expect. I started out wanting our home to be all white, but when we started to fill our space with only white, I changed my mind. It felt too cold and boring. I want to keep a majority of our furniture in light, neutral colors and add some pops of bright colors as well. We decided on the base colors white, tan and light grey and bought this white cowhide rug but then returned it and got this one. I’m constantly sourcing inspiration on Pinterest (images above here, here and here) and am also getting help from my friend and local interior designer, Caitlin (her blog is Sacramento Street). We have some upcoming DIY projects and will be showing you guys the process of our home decorating journey!

  1. I am excited to follow along. I think we are going to be relocating on my husbands company’s terms, so I won’t be able to decorate. Doing it vicariously is always fun! xo

  2. I love those three vertical striped throw pillows~
    I bet they will go with just about anything and everything.

    I am holding a Soprano Racerback Tank “GIVEAWAY” on my blog.

    love from the bay area!

  4. I’m seriously going through the same thing right now haha. I wanted all white but then I didn’t like how blank everything looked so I’ve been trying to add pops of color here and there. Can’t wait to see the DIY’s you have planned!

  5. I’ve been going through a similar thing with our home! We didn’t move, but we got new couches and now all I want to do is redecorate! I feel like the minute I think I have it figured out, I change my mind :) Can’t wait to see the details of your new place, lady!

  8. I agree! i thought I knew what I wanted but now going through the process it’s turning out quiet differently from what I thought it would. I love pops of color too… My base color is grey so i’m filling in with lots of purple, orange and teal…

  9. I think cowhide rugs are abhorrent and shameful. Walking on a dead animal is beyond tacky.

  10. Definitely had that same plan of attack when decorating my first apartment. Color is a scary thing for me. I’ve had my eye on that book for my coffee table (neutral cover yay). Hope everything goes well!!

  11. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! Would you like to follow each other? If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)

  12. I know exactly what you mean! We’ve just bought a house and I’m about to go through the same process…

  13. That’s so funny you say that about the all white. When I moved to NYC, I wanted to do my room in all white. Bought a white comforter from West Elm, but ended up returning it for a gray one at Anthro. Isn’t it funny how things look so differently in your head?! :)

  14. Very nice blog. Thank you for sharing this to us. Now I have ideas on how to redecorate my room. And probably can share these ideas to my friend who just moved in her new house! Keep it up and I’ll keep posted! Thanks!
