It's the Wednesday after a long weekend, and I suspect we could all use a little breather...I know I can! These images from 'At Home With White ' by Atlanta Bartlett are just what the doctor ordered. This book is an absolute must-read---you might have run into it before here or here---with more eye candy than you can shake a stick at!
The mother of pearl chandelier, the sequined toss pillows, the mile-high ceilings? I've died and gone to heaven! And I know I said yesterday that I'm a convert to dark floors, but these wide bleached planks might convince me otherwise.
Nothing highlights architectural details like a fresh coat of white paint; the monochromatic color scheme really lets the curves and crevices of this fireplace shine through. And can't you imagine hosting a charming brunch at this long, narrow table?
Total non sequitur alert: I spent a summer in the south of France when I was eighteen, and everywhere I went I carried a straw bag just like the one on the wall below. By the end of the trip the worn leather handles had snapped and the straw had frayed, but seeing this office space now reminds me of that sunny, carefree time.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming! The barely-there feathers on this stylish wallpaper bring an elegant and feminine touch to a sleek desk vignette. And of course I love little touches like a lucite container of all-white pencils.
Could a bathroom possibly be any sweeter? Maybe, but you'd have to search far and wide to find one as nice as this. That faucet is to-die-for, and the mirrors perched on wall ledges bring a touch of casual romance. Plus I'm a total sucker for a pitcher full of colorful blooms.
Is it weird to have paintings of strangers on your wall? Because there's one in the window of an antiques shop near my house, and I'm seriously considering making it my own. Maybe I could just claim it's a portrait of my great aunt Mabel...?
I don't 100% approve of this bedroom; the wire dress forms on the wall are a little too shabby chic for my tastes. But that light fixture? Be still my heart!
Okay, I saved the best for last. When the Wednesday crunch gets too overwhelming, just close your eyes and retreat to this space. Set a glass of sparkling lemonade on that tower of hatboxes, crawl under the covers, and dream of Saturday mornings drenched in bright, white light. Ahhh....
