~neutral heaven~

Hello everyone!!!

How is this beautiful autumn day
treating you??

I hope it's good!
I hope it's sunny!

we've been rained on over here, since Oct. 12th
although the sun is peeking out today! :)

I have to say....I'm not ready for the non-stop
rain.....not.  quite.  yet.
well actually I'll never be ready...
who am I foolin'???


I love neutrals....

I just never get tired of no color....
white, cream, grey, beige, off-white...
never tire of it....

white bowls, plates, cups
towels, slipcovers, blankets,
walls, cabinets...

no need for color here...
I got color outside...hehehehe
trees, flowers, grass...

I do have color in my clothing...
is black a color?? girls basically force
me to buy bright I'm not 
just a walking monotone girl...

I guess I just l.o.v.e.
the neutrals.....

they make me happy.....

how about you?
are you a neutral girl at heart??

or do you yearn for color??

are my children color deprived??
{well we do have  s o m e   color}
here & there....

well sort of ....
in their rooms at least! ;)

I do believe I could live with the little chair
above.....cutest little thing huh??

Hope you are all doing fantastic!!

I'm with you...I love all the different colors of white! I think I follow you all around FB and then Pinterest, Oh blogging too.
I'm really not a stalker, I just LOVE your style.
Thank you!!

Hi Shellagh
Oh you had me at no color! Oh yes we stalk you for the inspiration which you always give us in abundance. Thank you for such a beautiful and lovely post.

I love the way a simple palette looks in a cozy!

Unknown said...

we are kindred spirits indeed! i am soo a "neutral girl" as well! however...i do find i like a bit of color in my wardrobe. (those pix are gorgeous!!)

primjillie said...

I admit I do stalk you! lol I love your posts and yes, I thrive on neutrals. I do love blue and white ticking, but this goes so well with the neutrals. I still have some black furniture and even a bit of red that I am working on replacing, but the dream is to be neutral with bits of blue. I find my wardrobe is moving in that direction too.....

Blondie's Journal said...

Sorry about your rain, Shellagh. Does it rain all winter? I have always had romantic notions about the Pacific Northwest, Kristin Hannah has all her novels set there and I eat them up. Are you familiar with her?

I love neutrals, too, Unfortunately, I can't redo my whole house! I did redo the family room in neutrals, but that's it. I have mostly floral pastels left over from the shabby chic days, although I got rid of the lace! lol!

I really love these pictures...we can dream, right?


Deb said...

Your home is lovely. I come here to feel the calm your neutrals bring. I love white dishes, linens, cupboards and cabinets and my favorite tea-cup is white. My home is many colours but slowly colour will become the accents. Hugs, Deb

Ticking and Toile said...

Oh not my home Deb!! These are all pictures off my many Pinterest boards :) My home is filled with whites and neutrals as well, but definitely not as gorgeous as these pics!! :)

Shabby chic Sandy said...

Oh, I love all your neutrals. It is so peaceful and relaxing :)

Heaven's Walk said... know I love the neutrals....WITH a bit a color thrown in for good measure, Shellagh! :) That gorgeous patina'd door is callin' to me...!!!!

xoxo laurie

Unknown said...

Hello Shellagh,
I luv the neutrals, but I throw a bit of colour in as well. The home is done in white, cream, beige and chocolate with a bit of red and sage green thrown in. Just a bit.
I am luving your door!!
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Gee

I love the color palette of white, beige, grey, off-white, etc, but not sure if I could use it in my entire house. I also like color so would have to have color in some rooms. I'm thinking of neutralizing the master bedroom so that it is calm and serene in whites, grey and maybe a touch of black. Hugs, Leena

It's me said...

I also do love neutrals...not to white with some color and brouwns...enjoy a happy weekend

Pura Vida said...

well I never get tired of looking at your blog!

Jen Orsini said...

This tonal mix is gorgeous, but I could never be disciplined enough not to throw on an ethnic patterned pillow or odd ball artifact with color.

I do love your neutrals but I need to live with color. I find the neutrals very calm and can see why it would be so nice to live in a serene palette.

Hello there! Well, I often change moods and my idea of design changes also, depending on my mood. But I certainly love neutrals too, coz’ they are simply beautiful though without too much design and colors. And that’s what makes them unique and special. Anyway, thanks a lot for sharing these cool and warm ideas. I love it!
