50 DecorBook Ideas : 31. Stick with a Color Palette

posted on

Sticking with a neutral color palette sure makes seasonal decorating easier.  Since our house is neutral, I can easily jazz it up with seasonal colors.  Usually, by summer, I've moved to summery blue and white.  But since Easter, I've been stuck on a sunny yellow.  The forsythia and cast iron bunnies are long gone so it was time to get a bit of summer inside.  Turns out it's easy.  In the entryway, I replaced forsythia with shells.  To keep the yellow theme going, I just tucked my sunflower photo behind the tray.  The basket corrals mail and keys. 

A collection of glass balls reflects light.

On the living room mantel, starfish tucked into the spring set up.  Still loving my yellow glassybaby.

I moved my IKEA trunk from my office to the living room, replacing an upholstered ottoman for the summer.

A piece of yellow burlap lines a tray.

More yellow pillows in the sunroom.

A sunny burlap liner in a tray.  Super easy - just cut and fringe the edges.  No sewing involved.

Bookcases are lined with books and picnic baskets (mostly collected from the Alameda Flea Market).

By fall, I just might be ready to move on to blue and white.  In the meantime, the sun is shining both inside and out around here.  Enjoy your summer!
