Color Friday is: Colorless!

5 Aug

This is a repeat post: I confess. Sometimes it’s better to take a nap  and do your dishes than it is to keep at the grind. I’ve had a few busy weeks of unexpectedly “needing to be flexible” and next week I’m lucky to be spending some time with family. So consider this August lull to be my mental health day/days/weeks. In the meantime, enjoy “Colorless Friday!” It’s one of my favorites, and it’s very relaxing! –Jessica

Sometimes less really is more; especially when it comes to glass, lucite or resin. Nothing makes a crowded and over-furnished space a little lighter than a single unexpected lucite console.  A glass table can give your rug a little more room to shine, and a barely-there pendant light can maximize the functionality of your fixture while contributing to a modern, minimalist aesthetic.

I love these pieces for their simplicity and clean lines; a single one works just as well in a Federal-style living room as a whole room of them do in a contemporary house. Hope you can find one that you like; I especially love the creamer!
