A Neutral Territory


As I am sure you all are well aware by now that I love neutrals. Needless to say then if I had my very own library then a neutral territory it would be. After a long day at work, okay playing with KJ, I would come in and throw my pretty tweed jacket over one of my four lovely club chairs that all sit in a circle. In the center of that circle my pendant light would shine an ever so lovely glow. Of course the walls would be lined with bookcases filled with many of my favorite designs books this one and this one would sit happily at the top of my many piles.

Sounds lovely! I really like everything you picked out, even the tweed jacket. Something about this time of year makes me want to dress like that! My living room is kind of in the neutral family. I find that I switch back and forth on how I would like to decorate! Have a great day!

And if you cover the books in vellum they too become neutral, with their titles just peeking through. I'm in love with that pendant light.
