White & Bright

A mainly white palette is so peaceful and serene, don't you think? It also feels cool and refreshing, especially during the brighter, warmer days of spring and summer. During the cold months of winter, however, when the days are short and the skies tend to be gloomy and overcast, I prefer richer, earthier tones to warm up my interiors. On days such as those, I think this palette would feel downright chilly! Thank goodness those days are still far away or these photos would not beckon to us so invitingly.

There's a great antiques boutique in Fredericksburg, TX that is all white. It's so beautiful, it feels like heaven. My baby's nursery is done in mostly white.

Very refreshing, Jean...you've reminded me that I'd like to change out our current bedspread for a white one this summer!

Alas, I, too, wish I could decorate this way. Maybe one day...

I love these pictures! When I first decorated my home 3 yrs ago I had to have color everywhere and now that I have found all these great blogs I am wanting a white home.
