Casual Style Decor

We all lead busy lives, and although our lifestyles reflect that, the decor of our homes doesn’t have to. I know that for me and my family, having furnishings that are easy to care for is what makes life simple. With casual style decor, you can have it all—it is the basis for mix and match styling, and it allows the style of your home to evolve with your growing family.

White is the signature color of casual style decor—it is the perfect backdrop to let your child’s personality shine through. For wonderful white walls, try Simply White by Benjamin Moore, All White by Farrow and Ball or Swiss Coffee by Dunn Edwards.

An all white color palette is not as scary as it sounds because white is actually one of the easiest colors to care for. With canvas or cotton duck slipcovers on sofas and simple white bedding, you can easily wash and go.

Casual style decor can also mean anything goes! White trim and cabinetry allow for colorful accents to develop over time. The great thing about casual style decor is that it is so versatile, allowing for ever-changing design palettes.

Take a cue from your child’s imagination—there are no rules with casual style decor! There are no wrong ideas, and random is beautiful. There is no such thing as perfect.

When you want to keep a space simple and light, invite casual elements into the room. Consider simple white cabinets, built-in furniture that is cozy and lounge-worthy, assorted pillows that you love just because and temporary displays of imagination.

For me, casual style means there is room for everything. Nothing is too precious, and the beauty of white is everywhere. I love this quote from A Perfectly Kept House is the Sign of A Misspent Life by Mary Randolph Carter: “Comfort is born out of use, therefore the most comfortable houses seem to be the ones that have been lived in.”
