Warming up the Family Room

Hello everyone!

Since most of my rooms are white, it's hard to warm up the spaces without adding some color.  But, I still love neutral colors, so I found these cute ikat pillow covers on Etsy that did the trick. I placed them on my sofa in the family room and love the contrast.





I think this is a fairly popular pattern as I have seen it around before.  There are several Etsy shops that carry it.


Not surprisingly,  I changed up the centerpiece on my coffee table too.  



I have a  set of these wooden crates.  I used the smaller one to hold flowers.  I like the contrast of the dark wood against all of the soft whites and grey's in the room.  


I moved my orchid to the side table instead.  I just love white flowers, if you can't tell by now!

In the meantime, I'm working on re-accessorizing the cabinet next to my fireplace.  I've had it the same way for awhile, so I'm ready for a change.  I'm still tweaking it, but when I'm done, I'll share it with you.  This cabinet gives me fits trying to get it the way I want it.  

Thanks for stopping by!

I always stand amazed at what you can do with a neutral palette! It never looks cold - just cozy and inviting!

I am a new follower on GFC. I love your home. I also love the whites and neutrals, unfortunately I am the only one in my house that does. One day, I will have it. Nice to meet you and I look forward to your posts.

I love that centerpiece! I'm a big fan of white flowers too. They just seem so fresh and clean and brighten up any room. Those pillows are very pretty too. I love that we can find pretty much anything these days on Etsy (or Amazon) :)
