neutral, masculine nursery, week 5: accents

well, HEY.
its magically, suddenly, amazingly another "weekly" installment of the neutral nursery!
(ha! ha! ha!)

in keeping with our neutral theme, we wanted all of the supporting accents in the room to add texture and pattern to the room, but not any "real" color. when working with neutrals, it is really important to get a variety of not only textures and materials, but also a variety of COLORS of neutrals....for instance, mix several shades of gray (light, medium, charcoal. black) with other neutral colors (taupe, camel, beige, white, cream...). and NEVER be afraid to mix brass with chrome, wicker with leather, wood with acrylic! its that delicious mix that will make the room come alive! 

here are some of the items we added to get that MIX:

and, some (lame iPhone) photos that show those elements at work in the nursery:
