Next To Nude

Speaking of lightening up, I'm loving these barely there shades of nude and blush. I'm looking to make the switch not only in my wardrobe and accessories but in my home as well.

Right now my living room is primarily filled with dark woods and wines but I'm really considering making a major switch, something more along the lines of the living room above. Isn't it just dreamy? I'm a bit concerned with upkeep and such but there has to be a way to make it work, right?

Hope you're all having a great week!

Love the living room... so pretty and chic!! xo

SabinePsynopsis said...

So lovely! Totally with you on this... I'm not a big interior design freak & keep our rooms in neutral colours because it's calming and clean and gives me space to think. Actually, it can't be light and white enough for me - even though I love colours and patterns in other houses. xoxo

Am busy styling a shoot where I have used a lot of nudes. they always lend such soft sophistication to every look, make-up or interiors...

Ann On and On... said...

loving neutrals right now - with a touch of pink or other pastel colors!

Unfortunately I can't go with too much nude/ blush in the home because of my crazy pup who would most likely ruin the serenity (aka cleanliness) of it, but these images are making me wish I could!

A nude room sounds dreamy and relaxing, I think you would really like the change!

Blusy pink nudes are pretty much occupying all of my thoughts at the moment- just so feminine and pretty- gorgeous post.

Diana said...

Love that pink sweater...would be lovely for Spring...Im looking to get a new sweater...always wearing the same black one all winter! :) Hope you have a lovely day. Those tones would look great with dark woods.

classiq said...

Love these shades too. A light living room is a great idea, I've been thinking of just that: to change the wenge furniture to natural colored wood. The middle way is always the best, especially when it comes to decorating your home. Ada

Gabriella {sensiblyluxe} said...

Great minds think alike! When you mentioned redecorating, I first thought, "Oooh lovely" then "Oh dear, what about spills?"
Loved all the photos as always especially the last one with the scarf-tied purse.

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

OOOH I would love the dark wood with the barly there blush. YUM

BigAppleNosh said...

So ethereal! You always pick the best photos :)

Martina said...

Such soft and pretty colors - i have a side that loves these pastel and nude shades. But my other side loves bright colors - i'm a gemini! Have a lovely day Dawn!

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Oh how I've missed you! Love the color nude as well... wish I could wear it on my lips... but I just look a little too funny! xoxo

Style Attic said...

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

definitely yes, love all the neutrals, our living rom is also darkish and i wish I could just switch!

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

That living room is natural and blush at it's best. Perfectly done! I think it's a great idea to try and translate that idea in your own home. Seeing your style I think it will work out just beautifully:)

TK said...

totally agree. I just convinced my mom to buy all new cream-colored cabinets instead of dark wood.

Cara said...

Beth - In My World... said...

Beautiful! If you "go nude" in your home please share the photos - I am debating taking the plunge in my bedroom. It seems like it would be so incredibly peaceful and serene.

Lighter colours open up a room and make it look larger. It's why we went for light coloured furniture and furnishings.

victoria | vmac+cheese said...

Isn't it amazing how such ethereal colors can be so glamorous and luxe? Love this!

Sarah Klassen said...

Perhaps it has something to do with early Spring? I am completely craving these colors... especially with a bit of rich orange—just a tad... hope you're having a great Wednesday, xo

There is something so feminine and yet, mysterious about nude and blush. I love the Miu Miu handbag with the scarf tied on the handles - such a signature style idea. I hope your are well Dawn - Have a lovely Thursday and I hope spring decides to officially arrive on the East coast - we've had rain and then 20 degress - it can't make its mind up here either. :)
