Ty Larkin's Calming Palette

When I came across Ty Larkin's Baton Rouge home in House Beautiful I felt as if I had taken one large deep breath and exhaled. The subdued palette, classic architecture and smaller sized rooms create such a calm, cozy feeling that I just wanted to jump into each picture ending my little visit with drinks on the terrace!

My favorite quote from the article was Ty's answer to why he designs
with such a neutral palette.

"It allows you to change the look of a room, to inject a little bit of fashion — new throw pillows, a funky lamp — without blowing the budget. It gives you a timeless foundation."

Could you see yourself living in a house with such a neutral palette & Classic French Architecture or would you need more color over time?

I could totally see myself living there. Could I see my self living there with our twins...Yes...I think I can. The white is in areas I think could work out for a family. I would be a little concerned for the dining chairs but everything is perfect!!
When picking items for our home I always think elegance, comfort and child proof :-)

You have a great blog btw!
