Wonderful White Home

This home is floor to ceiling white and I just cannot get enough of it! Most of the rooms in this home are painted white and even the stairway is all white with no contrasting wood at all. There are small touches of colour found here and there in the furniture and on the walls in the upstairs bedrooms. Love the white/grey washed wood wall, floor and cupboards in the kitchen. Even this seems like a big contrast against the entry and living room. Simple and beautiful!

Enjoy!

Inspiration in White: Red and White Linen

So much to love about red and white linens. They feel typically French and many of the grain sack pillows, hand towels and table runners we are seeing are made with these incredibly durable linen and hemp materials from France, Belgium and Germany. I especially love the linens that have initials embroidered onto the piece. Some of these linens are up to a 100 years old so it makes you wonder about the original family that took the time to stitch their grain sacks. 

I am starting a collection of antique linens that I think could be a bit dangerous as once you buy a few pieces you can not resist looking for more. I have added the cushions below to my shop and have also added a wonderful table runner in red and an oatmeal colour.  Also have a gorgeous vintage chair upholstered in a red and white hemp grain sack. Just beautiful!

Cushions available in my shop made from Antique French Grain sack.

Love this bag made from linen..

Pretty embroidered frabric on this settee.

Vintage chair covered in red and white grain sack. This one is in the shop!

 

This is such a great idea from Dreamy Whites! What a nice way to bring a gift of a bottle of wine to your hostess.

This is the table runner and Grain Sack cushion available in the shop! Love how it looks against the white settee!

 

Enjoy!

Designer Home 

I really like Rue Magazine and the latest issue has got some great homes and ideas.

This months feature is on designer Caitlin Flemming. The home that she decorated below is actually the home of her mother and their collaboration was obviously a labour of love..and great taste. So simple... but the pieces! The gorgeous mirror in the living room, the armoire in the dining room and of course the amazing antique bed (I am afraid I would have to paint that bed white. I featured a really similar bed on Facebook in white and it is to die for!).

Enjoy!

Mora Clocks

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

You all know my love of Swedish style.. the simple way the rooms are arranged, the white palette and the delicate design of the furniture.

I have a particular obsession with Mora Clocks and have been searching for one for many years. Mora clocks were traditionally made in the town of Mora in Sweden and began production in the late 18th century and continued to be made right through the 19th century. They are essentially a grandfather clock and have wonderful varied colours and shapes. Some even have a kind of crown or ornament on the top of the clock.

There are really none to be found in Quebec or at least it is very rare but I hold out hope that I will one day have one in my home, in fact I have just the spot!

 

Enjoy!

White with Brights

This small cottage is short on space but big in style. The all white house is really punched up with bright colours in yellow and blue with hits of brown and grey. You can feel the light flowing through this space and the mix of bright patterned fabrics really works well to pull the rooms together. I love the wallpaper in the kitchen and the bentwood bench in the dining room. Such great ideas and of course there is always the soapstone sinks for gardening projects...how I would love a little space like this! Really a lovely fresh home don't you think?

Enjoy!
