This weekend has been filled with holiday decorating and I’m overdosed on glitter and sparkle. So today I’m sharing an eclectic Australian house decorated in neutral tones. The home of Kara Rosenlund has an organic vibe with earthy elements. (Photos by Kara Rosenlund, featured on Houzz.)
You’ll find plenty of texture throughout Kara’s home, which is important when you decorate with neutrals. A mix of finishes adds depth and interest to each room.
White walls and floors in the living room let all the rustic, earthy elements pop. I’m lovin’ all the texture like the wood ladder, basket-style pendant light, faux fur throws, old glass bottles, antlers and feathers. A few musical horns lend a touch of charming quirkiness.
You’ll find more eclectic charm in the kitchen of this eclectic Australian house. White rooms can sometimes feel cold and sterile, but the touches of wood and natural elements lend warmth throughout the home.
I’m a huge fan of white ironstone or any white dishes for that matter.
A cowhide rug pairs with equestrian artwork in the earthy dining room.
A cozy fireplace adds warmth on cooler days and evenings.
In the hallway, hats, bags, and even jewelry adorn the walls as decoration. Don’t be afraid to let your everyday apparel work as functional home decor.
In the bedroom, old architectural windows act as a decorative headboard. A simple stool serves as a nightstand with glass lamp.
A gorgeous claw foot tub takes center stage in the bathroom with painted paneling and stonework for a backdrop. The swing-out farm door window provides its own unique charm.
