Peaceful palette. There's nothing like white to cleanse your design palette - white can tell so many stories. Here are a few I am escaping with tonight...

inspires me to decorate a party with white balloons. One of my wedding showers had white and silver balloons as decor -- I still remember it and love the idea.

currently loving bare blond floor, trestle tables, all things Scandi, the idea of a loft.

Holy bread stack batman -- a styling wonder! also love the perfectly pressed creases in the linen towel in the background - no detail missed.

with ceilings this high and architecture like this you don't need much more. you can even get away with a crate bedside table. White canvas above bed -- loves.

 

a bit of nature and randomness plus a gutsy lamp. nice.

somewhere I'd like to make my tea every morning.

great envelope + simple furniture = stunning result.

wicked cool chairs - and waste basket.

a pretty jumble. have been under that chair's spell for years now. great painted floor boards.

trestle base gets me again. would love a white phone like that.

(drat, promised myself this blog wouldn't be just a bunch of stuff borrowed from others but found these on emmas designblogg and they are just too breathtaking not to share, mea culpa. see her blog here...).

In praise of the messy bed. In the world of magazine styling you've got your messy bed mags and your neatly made bed mags - rarely does one pub veer into the other's territory. At STYLE AT HOME, where I work, we are generally in the neat bed camp, with a few exceptions. But tonight I'm feeling the messy bed vibe.

dive in...
