the crisp, white bath

White is my all-time favorite “color”.  It’s so refreshing, calming, and uplifting.  If you are going for a look that is clean and timeless, white is the way to go.  It works especially well for kitchens and baths.

Because the weekends never seem to hang around long enough, I thought I’d supply you with an assortment of bathroom eye candy for your Monday morning.

Which one is your fave?  Do you think embracing white is incredibly chic, or painfully boring?

belgian chic with a dose of color

Believe it or not, I’m finally going through my insanely huge stack of magazine subscriptions from 2012… and I just came across this project in the September Color Issue of House Beautiful.

I’m loving the large light fixtures, crisp white, natural textures, and pops of color.  I’m also loving the fact that my Verellen Thibaut sofa is center stage in this shot.  (Mine is a much smaller size!)


Verellen is like the Mercedes-Benz of slipcovered furniture.  It just doesn’t get much better. I’m talking quality linen fabrics straight from Belgium. Each frame is handcrafted in a way that is stylish, comfortable and “sexy” as owner Tom Verellen would put it. (I met Tom a couple of years back when I was at Pizitz, and he’s a character!)

  When I lived in Florida, I worked in a shop in Seaside that looked practically identical to this pic.   That being said, if you ever go to Seaside,  you have to stop in Pizitz Home & Cottage!

I’m a fan of the bold orange.  It gives the space life.




DIY idea:  stitch a large square of fabric and either drape on a wall or wrap a canvas with it to create a simple yet striking piece of art.


Adding darker tones gives this space a more formal feel.


This palette is soothing.  Ahhh I could totally relax here.


This awesome project was designed by Kay Douglass, who owns the lovely  South of Market design shop in Atlanta.
