Steal This Look!

How many times have you heard the phrase “Beige is boring”? And when it comes to a roomful of the color, we have to admit, we agree. But we want to coin another phrase: “Beige is the best building block.” Beige and its cousins—tan, khaki, stone, putty—are the ultimate go-with-anything tones, and provide the proverbial blank canvas for all your decorating whims.

For this easy, subtle look, Annie started with her current go-to wall color, Benjamin Moore’s Silver Half Dollar, and painted the door and window trim in an antique ivory. Then she went found-object wild—the headboard is a cut-to-size, weathered-wood barn door bolted to the wall; the distressed-finish table is a thrift store steal; and the lamp is a Mod-sleek favorite find from the Brimfield Antique Show. You won’t be able to find these one-of-a-kind items in stores, but we’ve made a few shopping suggestions below. And we think this how-to for creating your own barn-door headboard from Little Yellow Barn is pretty rad.

For the bed, Annie combined a textured, dune-hued coverlet and shams with a snowy white duvet cover and shams in an all-over pintuck. She chose white hemstitch sheets to match, and finished it off with a tailored matelassé bed skirt the color of old flagstone. Simple, clean, and elegant in a trio of neat neutrals.
