10 Neutral Kitchens Full of Style

For most rooms in the home, neutral decor gets a bad rap for being “boring.” While I definitely believe neutral design can be anything but boring, the kitchen is one area where neutral decor is more widely appreciated.

Neutral kitchens have an innate sense of elegance about them that is timeless. They don’t get caught up as easily in trends and serve as a beautiful backdrop for colorful accents you can move in and out at will, such as bouquets of flowers. A neutral kitchen also looks great throughout any season, so holiday decor is easy to incorporate for entertaining.

There are so many creative and stylish ways to interpret a neutral kitchen, especially with the myriad of textures and patterns available in this space. Wood, stone and metallic surfaces are just a few of my favorites to work with. You can capture any style in a neutral kitchen with some imagination.

Here are 10 gorgeous neutral kitchen ideas that show the versatility and style possible with this palette.

10 Statement-Making Floor to Ceiling Headboards

When decorating a bedroom, the bed works best as the focal point of the room. It helps ground the space and has the most impact on the overall design. There are many ways to make the bed worthy of all the attention from choosing the right bedding to doing something special to the accent wall. However, if you really want to make your bedroom feel luxurious, then choosing the right headboard is a must.

A headboard can make all the difference in your bedroom’s design. It gives the bed more substance and is a wonderful opportunity to give it more style. There are myriad choices for headboards, but my favorites are the ones that go all the way to the ceiling. Floor to ceiling headboards have an incredible impact on a bedroom and really bump up the luxury a notch. There are even many DIY options to get this lavish look on a budget.

Here are 10 great examples of floor to ceiling headboards that create an amazing effect in each space.

Smart organization can make all the difference in a home. Not only is it the first step to making any home look better, but it also can take a lot of stress away when your home is functional and efficient. Some of the most crucial spots in any home to keep organized are the cabinets. These can easily get out of hand, and often people will be under the impression that they don’t have enough storage space when in reality, their cabinets simply aren’t organized as efficiently as possible.

The kitchen and the bathrooms have a lot of items that need to be kept inside cabinets, many of which are small items that easily clutter up the space. Thankfully, there are tons of clever and easy cabinet organization ideas that can improve these areas tenfold. Many of them are very affordable and can be implemented right away.

There are always new cabinet organization ideas popping up, so here are 10 of my favorites that I’ve seen recently that I just had to share.
