This issue is filled with rooms done in an elegant white palette.
I love color and touches of rich dark wood. But whenever I see an all white room like this, filled with vintage treasures and just a pop of color here and there, I start entertaining thoughts of redoing a room in white.
I also love the faded shabbiness of this old hutch. I'd love to have this in my creative space to fill with paint and ribbons of all shades. It's lovely to dream. Then I realize that an all white room/house could never work for me. Maybe it's the thought of having to do extra cleaning that scares me!
I love to move our stuff around and redecorate for the different seasons. I finally decided that I don't have a specific style but a mish mash of different ones. I mainly like to decorate around stuff I love that mean alot to me. We have lots of well loved hand me downs, stuff I pick up at antique and thrift shops and fun themed stuff depending on what I'm currently inspired by. When the 2nd Harry Potter movie came out my son and I absolutely fell in love with the Weasley's house, the Burrow. So my kitchen and dinning room had a very cozy higgledy-piggledy English cottage look, complete with faux painted brick walls and a scattering of owls.
Right now I already have a few touches of Fall out, even a few Halloween crows because I just can't wait anymore. Do you have a particular decorating style? I think I would call mine 'early casual bohemian vintage artsy whimsical cat'! Oh and guess what? I just happen to have 2 of this issue of Romantic Homes and if you tell me what you call your decorating style in a comment I'll do a random number thingy in a few days and send one out to you!
