White on White on White...
I was SO excited to get my new copy of Ballard Designs catalog.
the theme for this catalog...decorating with all shades white.
cream, ivory, white, vanilla...
(french for "white"...you know:)
I am IN LOVE with the color I painted my walls.
not strictly white but latte white.
COCONUT latte white!
It's so warm with my cherry wood floors and all white furniture.
makes me HAPPY!
so...since I don't want to be happy by myself,
I have a few pics and a book to share with you.
and I know what some say...
white is boring,
according to this book...
"White is the color for all seasons, and it never goes out of style. Rest your tired soul in a cool summer beach room, revel in the sumptuousness of an orange-white living room steeped in autumn elegance, or welcome winter with a classic gold-and-white table setting. White furnishings and home accessories have many contrasts and hues, but their net effect is always one of elegance"
(by the way...a good "white" book!
see for yourself...but to me, creams and whites together ARE interesting in a subtle way.
very serene (I need serenity)
comfy and cozy.
white on white...
good for any time of year,
tomorrow I'll show you what accent color I am adding to my creamy whites for spring/summer.
I know what you're thinking...pink.
I love it...and will have a few touches...
but not pink.
and let me leave you today with one of my favorite white on white accessories...
my sweet boy, MAUI.
