Romance Of White Decorating

Greetings everyone and I hope that you had a lovely weekend. It was a quiet one here and I spent some time working on a couple of custom dress form orders and then relaxing on Sunday with my husband around the pool......


I find white to be the most romantic of all colors and for today's post I took some close up shots of various textures in our living room to share (edited with textures!). You've heard it before that when you decorate in whites, textures are so important to keep the room from having too much of a cold, modern feel. You can click on any of these images to enlarge and I hope that you are inspired........



All photos are edited with textures from Kim Klassen. I'll be linking up to her Texture Tuesdays this week, I have the button on my sidebar. Also linking to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.....

I hope that you have an inspiring week ahead. Now, back to work for me...and I'll see you again soon. Please leave a comment if you have time.....

Hi Janet :) These photos are beautiful! I'm trying to incorporate more white into my color scheme, but of course, I still have to have my pink, lol :)

I received the Nightea in the mail the other day, and I just LOVE it!! Thank you so much for having the giveaway, and for picking little 'ol me :) I'll be doing a post about it a day or so.

Have a great week!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hey Janet, that makes two of us. Actually, those dolls are so hard to come by in any condition. The more tattered, the more I liked. Thanks for stopping by and I recognized your name and style from the mags. Very honored to have you visit, Marta.
