Hi, it’s Ashley + Christina, blogging duo at neutral hue.
Our side-by-side blog is devoted to the love of neutral! Ashley is southern and has a classic, rustic aesthetic, while Christina is from NY and a lover of classic, modern design. We are out to prove that neutral works throughout design styles + sensibilities.
When Gina sent us a note about guest blogging about Scandinavian holidays we knew the topic was a great one for us!
We had this little shoot planned for our wee ones, and found it the perfect place to showcase the minimal holiday styling. Our inspiration for the shoot was holiday beauty in simplicity mixing the Ashley’s love of rustic through her son, 1 year old Wyatt (eeks, how time flies!), and Christina’s organic simplicity through her 9 month old daughter Mila.
Hope you enjoy our interpretation of simple Scandinavian.
Happy (Neutral) Holidays!
Ashley + Christina

Here are some little glimpses into the beauty I see around me this morning.
“My heart bursts its banks, spilling beauty and goodness.
I pour it out in a poem to the king, shaping the river into words…”
-Psalm 45:1, The Message

This is the bedroom of blogger An-Magritt’s daughter. Isn’t it light and lovely? It truly may be the most beautiful room I have seen in a long, long time. It’s definitely worth seeing the other photos of the bedroom, here. So, so wonderful! A perfect use of pastels.

I like the curvature of the stairs in this farmhouse remodeled by architects Cilia and Hendrik Tovar.
Aren’t the colors lovely in this room styled by Caitlin Creer?
Le Dans La is one of my favorite blogs…I can’t speak French, but boy, do I love the gorgeous, bright photography!
This is such a great play tent from (no joke) La Tente, as seen as on Bloesem Kids. Aveline would just demolish it though. Seriously.
Ohhh! Giant yarn! I like this a lot. Click through to Hokusfiliokus to see the huge pouf/beanbag fashioned from this yarn! So fun.
Now off to take care off some chores around here…ahh, Mondays. ;-)
