The Power Struggle of Color Versus Neutral

I often struggle with what I like better…

Neutrals,

Via

Or Colors.

Via

I enjoy a soft and serene oasis,

Via

but I also like a bold statement.

Via

I like tone-on-tone and quiet hues,

Via

but I also like to be daring.

Via

I like soft fabrics and subtle textures,

Via

but I also like vibrant, contrasting bursts of color.

Via

Why choose?  I just need to accept that I like it all! There’s always a happy medium.

Do you struggle with keeping a space neutral or adding color?
What do you prefer – Neutrals or Color?

      I guess I jut appreciate it all and wish I had lots and lots of space to do it all. One room in all whites, another in bright colors, another with rich textures, etc…. Thanks Angie for chiming in! xo Jenna

    I struggle between the two opposites also. I usually just end up going with the neutrals, just to be on the safe side. I’m always afraid that if I try to so the bold, bright and daring stuff that I won’t pull it off or put it all together correctly and it’ll just look like choas or have that “too much going on” appearance.

    Have you ever felt like you were reading or hearing something that is just sooo YOU?!?! Welp… you have hit the nail on the head. This is SO me!! I’m not afraid to try it all… BUT can you really do rooms differently (assuming they don’t flow into one another) and it not look ridiculous?! I think I just need “permission”… hahaha.

    LOVE your blog! I’m a big fan! :)

      I think you can absolutely have rooms in the home with different tones (white vs. color). In the more vibrant space, you can bring in some neutral / white accents and in the white room, you can introduce some colorful accessories/accents. So glad you’re a “big fan” Kristy! xo Jenna
