Get the Look Decor: Elegant Neutrality

Jan 16, 2011

by Christine Domanic

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

ChristineThis weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the Dallas, Texas home of husband and wife team, Jamie and Larry Oliver. Their favorite word when decorating is “juxtaposition”: mixing different styles that aren’t expected to go together.

Jamie says that their home’s style reflects the changes and insights that entering her thirties has wrought. As she’s learned more about herself, she has slowly edited out color to create a space with an elegant neutral palette. Her advice, when it comes to interior design, is to “be yourself and surround yourself with things you love; there are no ‘wrongs’ in decor, as long as it brings you happiness.”

Jamie’s favorite thing about her home is the projects she and her husband undertake together. They enjoy weekend projects like painting the ceiling black or covering the walls with old barnwood. She says, “It’s fun to see how just one thing can change everything.”

    On purpose banning colour = abhorrent. How can you talk about people daring to show their character in their homes when you make yours so depersonalized?

  • TheVintaquarian

    TheVintaquarian said 6 years ago

    Classy and quite compelling. I think the beautiful thing about "juxtaposition" is that when you put those contrasting or unexpected things side by side a wonderful sort of tension results. The best kind of tension, the kind that gives your eyes and heart a little something to play with while still feeling extremely pleased! Very beautifully done and the Etsy Finds fit in perfectly, as usual. And thanks for having TheVintaquarian's condiment/collection tray as one of them!

    Lovely collection! Really like the horizontal wood slats on the wall near the fireplace; cozy corner. Growing up in a home with mismatched furniture (not necessarily by choice) I've caught myself worrying that furniture in my home now matches. But I'm appreciating that it's actually very nice when they don't, especially when they are things that as this article says, make you happy. Thanks for the encouragement; and very nice place! :)
