Designer Erin Feasby of Feasby & Bleeks Design proves that decorating with light neutral hues for a young family is possible. See how she brightens up a dark and dated home to create a modern classic space that’s built to withstand the wear and tear of a young family.

To freshen up the space, Erin painted the walls a warm white, and incorporated tones of grey and quiet colors throughout. New gorgeous grey-brown hardwood floors complement the light palette. In the white kitchen, the existing backsplash and cupboards were kept, and grey tartan fabric was added to the dining table chairs for a durable yet stylish addition. The living room is neutral with apricot accents and floral prints. A sculptural light fixture in the dining room adds the wow factor to the understated design.
