Heavenly White

With the prospect of owning a new home in the next six months or so (firstly have to sell the current one!) I am trying to whittle down what style I want to decorate my house with. I have to take into account the style of property it is and how I can incorporate my existing furniture and furnishings...budget will be tight so we have to work with what we've got.

At the moment our home is a mix of beachy / french / vintage. I am definitely leaning towards the french / vintage for our next home. The main points for a home like this are...white, distressed furniture, painted white floor boards, vintage finds, linen, time worn objects, black and white photo's and a white & greige palette...I love the sound of that.

Hubby will be happy as to veer into this style all I need to do is visit some second hand markets and pick up bits and pieces from there - he can't complain about that!

Here are some images that encompass what I'd love to achieve.

Isn't it just gorgeous? So soothing and welcoming, with a certain charm. It takes a lot of restrain to decorate with a white on white palette but at the end of the day if you get bored then it is easy to add some colour highlights later down the track.


PS. Still unable to comment on others blogs...frustrated to say the least...blogspot sort it out!

White is so beautiful and calming and you are right, you can add a dash of color here and there if you wish. Very pretty photos.
