Today’s Mix & Match post features seven images. The topics of the photos are all different (interior, travel, fashion) but they have something in common: beautiful soft nude & neutral shades. I particularly love these soft colors for bathrooms as it creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
This beautiful 1,600-square-foot two-bedroom residence high in the hills of Laurel Canyon belongs to trend forecaster Anne Ziegler and her husband Scott Mason. The 1934 house had undergone an extensive renovation to transform it into light and airy home with a crisp white color scheme. The couple’s goal was to create a calm place in which they can escape from their busy careers. Anne: “I spend all day looking at magazines, books, and blogs for inspiration. So we wanted a peaceful place in the canyon away from the over stimulation of our lives.” You can find more about this beautiful home and the furniture that was used decorating it in Domino Magazine.
With a bit of soft pink you can give a warm and feminine touch to your home. I like it best when subtle hints of pink are used through some pink accessories, a single piece of furniture in pink and/or a rug (this one for example) with shades of pink it it. Too much pink can easily be too sweet. At the end of this post you can find some suggestions for pink colored accessories.
This laid-back wood-clad bungalow on Cape Town’s Bakoven beach oozes seaside style. The lucky owners are Cathy, Mike and their three children. A lover of bargain finds, the resourceful Cathy did the interiors herself. ‘A well-known interior designer once came up from the beach and had a look, and his advice has always stuck with me – he said that the painting was outside the window and that whatever happened inside shouldn’t compete with it,’ she recalls.

In this Mix & Match post a selection of nine images are featured. There is no connection between the photos but they all have something in common. In this case the common factor are the lovely soft natural shades.
This beautiful home in Umbria, Italy, belongs to hotelier Andrea Falkner Campi. Well known Italian designer Paola Navone was asked to transform the old building dating from the 17th century into a modern 500m2 open space home. The beautiful ten meter high ceilings give a spacious feel. Wooden floors and furniture pieces (such as the large dining table) add a touch of warmth. I love the bathroom tiles on floor and walls which are also designed by Paola for Flaminia and are all handmade in Morocco.
