Ginnie Leeming of Hello Little Home found creative, money-saving ways to create her layered neutral decor. That tablecloth? An inexpensive drop cloth cut to fit her table. Those texture-rich placemats? “The placemats were created from a large piece of burlap that was intended for gardening. I cut out rectangles, then pulled strands of burlap off the edges to form a simple fringe,” Leeming says. A golden-wrapped box topped with a buffalo-plaid ribbon adds a bright pop at each place setting.
Similar to the color in his dining room, David painted the cabinet of his big-box vanity cabinet a moody blue that really pops in the all-white bathroom. Keeping the space monochromatic allows the painted cabinet and the wood tones of the wall décor to shine.
If your favorite dryer sheets' package clashes with your color palette, transfer the contents into a container that's more in line with the decor. Stacy Risenmay of the blog Not Just a Housewife chose an old metal box that adds the perfect patina to her laundry room.
The lower charcoal gray section of the two tone walls adds texture and color to the simple design of this bathroom. A mounted oval mirror and black and white hand towels finish the vanity space. Coastal shadow box displays add depth and decor to the room.
Black carpet with a white logo sets the stage for a stylish black and white bedroom and lounge area. A loft bed sits over a sectional with alternating black and white cushions. Speaker throw pillows and a boom box picture add a music themed decor to the room. A striped ceiling brings a tight pattern to the design.
Of all the people on your Christmas list, the little ones are sure to be the most excited when it comes to unwrapping gifts around the tree. Give your wide-eyed tots the biggest surprise by leaving plush animals unwrapped and interspersed with gift-wrapped boxes. This adds a youthful touch to your decor and gives the little ones something to run and grab the moment they wake up. (Plus, there will be less wrapping paper to clean up!)
