Bloggers seems to have moved on to other themes.
I do so love white stoneware, plates and the soft glow of all white rooms.
Filtered light cast shadows on this simple jug.
Atlanta Bartlett's lovely book
At Home With White has some seriously beautiful images
I keep opening this book and dreaming in white.
I never tire of white rooms
they ooze with elegance
a breath of calm relaxation.
I love when whites are massed together
the effect is amplified
especially when there are variations of shapes and texture.
Oh be still my beating heart,
look at this all white kitchen!
Simple, elegant and stunning in it's beauty.
Our heritage Bungalow has dark Douglas Fir wood panelling and wainscoting and beams.
We would not dream of changing this element as that would be tampering with the original architects' design.
Milo S. Farwell worked in Victoria, Seattle and San Francisco.
I wonder how many of his homes still exist.
We are stewards of this home and do our best to keep it as original as possible.
Loving white as I do
I add it where I can...

The Meissen platter is a favourite of mine.
I love the grand scale of it and the gentle scalloped edge.
Maxwell Williams china is widely available and is quite reasonably priced.
Open stock makes it easy to pick up more pieces.
When you choose white china it is easy to mix and match different styles and designs
it all works
Say you are hosting a dinner party or a buffet for 20 and you own a set of 12
you can borrow white china from your friends
and put it all together so it looks fabulous.
Apples even look prettier against the white bowl
this bowl was found at a local thrift shop
I think it was originally a wash basin.
For some inspiration pop on over to Country Living and have a browse...
I'll be back in a few days with some highlights from our Seattle and Vancouver trip.
There was lots of sightseeing and shopping...
and yes there were shoes!
