Winter White

March 6, 2013

I know it is a little early to right off winter but a stroll into any store these days will put you on spring high alert. The patterns and colors that are popping out are fantastic and can certainly put you in a good mood.  But on of my wardrobe and decoration mainstays is a good winter white. It’s the first thing I each for if  I don’t know what to wear. Maybe that’s a brunette thing.

So pretty!

I know I know I’m the most predictable girl in the world but I just can’t help being totally attracted to the all white house. This one featured in New England Home magazine is and amazing Boston apartment that makes me want to sit back an relax. The design firm Weena & Spook thought it best to keep the interiors clean and simple so that the view was showcased. View? I might just sit around and look at my pretty apartment all day. I love it.

Pickled

February 23, 2011

Meet my new friend… Briwax Liming Wax. I want to rub it on everything. Ha ha! I randomly purchased a tub at Guirys the other day because it said it created a white wash,pickled finish on wood. Oooooo. Sounds divine.  So I applied a coat to a pine coffee table and pine desk/dining table I have had in my garage and it rocks! I love the outcome and the pictures do not do it justice because it was sunny. If you have something you want to revive I suggest you give it a try.

I might put another coat on this but I'm liking it as is right now.

 

Here's the coffee table

And this is the status of my garage right now. Thank god it's been so warm out!

Here is a great tutorial from Apartment Therapy

*Note. It says to apply sparingly. I did at first but then really layered it on to get the effect I wanted.

stark white

May 27, 2010

For some reason I wish I could to it all up in white. I love the look of a crisp white button down, fresh white sheets and white sheers billowing in the wind. White walls, furniture and floors sounds so divine. But then it’s back to reality and I have kids and even worse a husband whose kind of like a black lab sometimes making of mess of the white I do have. I guess my house is as white as I can get it for now. Thank god for bleach!
