I love white rooms. However, with the cooler weather finally upon us, I've been craving a little bit of warmth in my mostly white house. I already have dark brown wooden floors which is a huge help in offsetting all of the white. However, I wanted a bit more. So, I decided to bring in some more brown tones and wood. It still keeps my rooms feeling soft but adds more dimension I think.
The first thing I did was to add stacks of old brown books in a large wooden tray to my coffee table.
I'm liking it already! Then, I moved a few of them up to my mantel (sorry, white books that I just added recently).
Then, I brought in a burlap pouf. I like the look of burlap and the texture. Plus, it is functional as well as stylish.
Over in my sitting room, I added a rustic wooden tray with rope handles.
I'm loving these changes and the warmth it brings to the space. It keeps these rooms from feeling "too sweet". I like the juxtaposition between the feminine and masculine too.
It is supposed to be beautiful here in GA this weekend. Do you have any fun plans? I will probably help my son with a school project and go to the movies to see The Martian. Has anyone seen that yet?
Thanks for stopping by!
