Glad you could find some humor in my purse story.  

And it was nice to know that there are a few others out there [even some "younguns"] who are entertaining themselves with crazy stints like mine:)

Since I am kind of known for using neutrals I thought I would pull together some inexpensive items from Home Decorators today that can help with that look in your own room.

I am starting with pillows.

Most of these have ton's of texture which you drastically need when working with neutrals.

Next are some great lamps [all from Home Decorators]

On to some ottomans/poufs.

Accent tables
Lot's of texture here.

Last are rugs.  I saw so many good ones.  Most of these have pattern.

And of course Seagrass….which could be the foundation to layer any one of the above rugs on for added texture.

And….don't forget to add some green.

There you go.  I did not plan on this post going where it obviously went…..a gazillion images…..but I found so many great things and I wanted to share with you.  

So get your neutral on.

We didn't even touch on art, paint color and accessories.  Maybe another post….

Thanks for hanging in there with this one….

Love neutral...and I could use a gray garden stool in the living room and an ottoman in the bedroom!
Thanks for the great info.

You're always so generous with your information sharing. I would never think to buy anything from there but there's a bunch of stuff I'd love to have.

I've had my eye on the teak stool! Of course they didn't have it in store so I could look at it, drat.

My home is full of color. Mostly blues. In fact, I've never lived in a home decorated in neutrals. But recently my best friend re-did her kitchen in all neutrals & I have to say...it's very calming!
Who knew? You did, of course!

Love the variety of ottomans and poufs as well as the end tables. Tempting pieces, some of them :)

I am amazed at how many good things you can find on HDC. Not always sure about the quality but as long as you keep that in mind...

New reader here. I was innocently looking at a post by that nice, talented man at The Urban Cottage. He is working on his floors and he had an impossible-to-resist photo and link to your white ones.

So apparently you need to register your blog with the DEA as a controlled substance because I have spent the better part of the last three days reading your entire archive..and I am only up to October 2012. Honestly, I have a life, I am not loony, I have never read the entire archive of a blog before. This is some serious narcotic here.

Anyway. I have a question that has really been bothering me (I am not a design professional). I am also a neutral girl. Sometimes I try to put neutrals together and the undertones in the tans/beiges/grays/taupes/browns/blacks/whites don't work together. I really blew it in my kitchen where my gold granite Clashes with my travertine floor. Hot mess. (I wonder if I could paint my floor?) When you mix neutrals, it always looks great in your photos. You don't seem to obsess over the undertones or even mention them. Do you even think about that consciously or is it all instinct? Do the undertones only matter in large items like flooring, counters, sofas? I would love it if you did a post about how you approach that. The Houston-look, Belgian-look designers all seem to get away with mixing neutrals with different undertones and I love it. How is it done successfully? Am I just overthinking this?

I love the idea of adding more neutral accents, especially throws, when it starts getting cold.
