A Neutral Retreat

I think I’m on sensory overload. Viewing multiple sites for new items for the store almost daily, plus scouting the web for blog ideas, updating our lookbook, not to mention all the online summer sales I’ve been personally stalking…Today, I’m craving quiet spaces and tones.  A muted color palette in a house can really create such an inviting oasis. Soft colors and textures seem to work together beautifully, giving off a vibe of comfort and calm.

  10. I am definitely a neutral person at heart – a little pop of color is ok, but give me primarily creams, taupes, and soft soothing colors and I am happy!
