White on White

Oh this is one of those super houses I come across that I just love. Anyone that can do white on white this well is a star for me. Line Kay, who is a stylist and photographer as well as the owner of this home, has such good taste. (you must check out her Instagram ....swoon!) A bit of natural wood and accessories in wood tones break up the white but keep the right mood at the same time. The white wood floors are such a favourite!

Are you brave enough to do white on white like this?

Inspiration in White: Canopy Beds

I think I must like canopy beds a lot because as I was going through my Pinterest I realized that I have many photos of this style of bed....but really what is not to like about a canopy bed. Beautiful big beds with flowing fabric, often in white, creating a gorgeous romantic setting. I know they say that a canopy bed should only be used in a very large room but I am not so sure about that. Of course it looks amazing in a big room but I think it can look equally fantastic in a smaller space if done right. I love how it can be made to look traditional and more formal or very loose and relaxed with a simple sheet floating lightly over the bed....and when it is done in white it is the best!

London Calling

Pretty house in London with pale cream walls against dark rich floors making a wonderful statement. This house from Light Locations has got beautiful paneling throughout that really gives it great texture. 

What is so good with this home is the variety of whites and greys. I love mixing whites in my home so there is a tone on tone feeling. This is the best thing to do when you have a mostly all white home and what makes it look so interesting. The outdoor and indoor lighting will also add shadows and change the way the light looks at different times of day.....my walls can go from white to pale yellow depending on the day light. So beautiful....

Inspiration in White: Moulding

I was with a client today and we were talking about adding some architectural interest through moulding around the ceiling and on the walls, This is such a quick and easy way to give your room height, definition, presence and interest. In the case of these pictures, the moulding is obviously from another era where plaster was used to create these intricate and spectacular designs. I really love the look of these rooms mixing Victorian era on the walls with modern furnishings in the rooms. They really seem to fit perfectly together!!

New Ceramics and Kitchens to Love

I have recently added some new ceramics to my Etsy site here...I am currently working with a new artist by the name of Marie-France Labrosse and she has created some wonderful pieces that I am now selling in my Etsy store. She has amazing talent and it is a pleasure to be able to get her work out there for people to see! When my pieces are in the process of creation and when they are being photographed (by Chloe Crane-Leroux) I always picture them in a certain setting...what kind of kitchen I see them in, what kind of table could I make with them and so on..which helps me imagine how the people will use them and gives me inspiration and new ideas. Here are some of the new ceramics in my store and a few wonderful kitchens that they would look great in...

Interiors: White and Wood

Such an incredible home from The Lettered Cottage I just had to share. The store and house (Check out the on-line store Atchison Home) are situated in one building and I am sure the furniture moves from one to the other rather often. All decorated in white rustic French style, it is really so amazing! Wonderful painted furniture, some left in the original wood color which makes a great contrast. Great tiled floors that provide a nice dark base for all the white and really anchors the entire space. My favourite spot though is the garden room with the metal sink. Love it!

Stylish Open Plan Apartment

This wonderful open plan space has lots of great elements. The concrete floor has such a fantastic glossy finish, beautiful beams all around the apartment and white, white everywhere. What could be better! The owners of this apartment in Copenhagen are both in the fashion business and you can see their good taste throughout the space. They have used really perfect classic pieces that will stand the test of time matched with great modern design.

Inspiration in White: Wooden Tables and Chairs

There are so many possible looks when it comes to choosing a table and chairs for the dining room or for the kitchen. Modern or mid-century, vintage or traditional they all look great and add a warmth to these rooms. I have been looking for a chair for my studio and the one in the first photo would be perfect! Such a fun vintage piece that would fit so well at my work table. I especially love the natural wood I am showing in these pictures but painted wood is always beautiful as well. I have a stained top on my wood dining room table, with painted legs so I get the best of both!

Enjoy!

Inspiration in White: White on White Kitchens

Yes...it is true... this is not my first post on white kitchens and.... it will not be my last post on white kitchens because..well..I love all white kitchens! I have seen so many wonderful white kitchens on Pinterest these days that I just had to share. They have many similarities but can I just say that I am still loving the subway tiles...who said subway tile is out because it looks fresh and beautiful in these homes....and what about that whole kitchen done with subway tile floor to ceiling..Love it!

Good Book: A Life Less Ordinary

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

This week my daughter came home with a book that she bought at Anthropologie called A Life Less Ordinary. She is a photographer in her last year of college and bought the book for inspiration for some photos she is doing next semester. Well, I took one look at this book and settled on the couch with a cup of tea and took some serious dream time for myself. WOW.....I came away so inspired to move furniture, take pictures and think creatively. The two authors and best friends, Zoe Ellison and Alex Legendre, are the owners of I gigi General Store in East Sussex, England. The book is a history of their lives and friendship and of the inspiration for their homes and for the store. Every page is a delight and their story is really lovely. Take a look at just a few of the photos of the store and tomorrow I will show you pictures of their homes...See Part 2 and the owners homes HERE !!
