color story: calming neutrals / sfgirlbybay

today’s color story is all about simple style and a soothing color palette — graceful rooms that aren’t too cluttered and allow you to find inspiration all around you, and perhaps outside of your norm. the more time i spend at home during this pandemic, the more i want a less cluttered life, and i find myself wanting to purge unnecessary knickknacks and being a collector, this is really hard for me, but i also feel a little bit burdened by too much stuff. so here’s to a simplified color scheme and calm, serene rooms, one and all, and here’s hoping we are able to leave our comfort zones soon, are kinder to one another, and truly find peace and a sense of well-being this year.

  1. Love this post! I couldn’t agree more with your sentiments. I consider myself a collector at heart. That said the more time I’m home the more I feel the need to clear surfaces – more is less. Thank you Victoria!

  2. Totalmente de acuerdo … comparto esa filosofia que nos confiesas en la introduccion. pongamos de nuestra parte para crear y compartir un mundo mejor para todos.
