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.

And plants in earthenware pots reinforce the earth tone color scheme while adding to the nature-inspired feel of the room. Amy’s ability to layer neutrals helps bring pieces from various periods together beautifully.
