Don't you just love white? It's always been a hit among interior designers and decorators.

The Dormy House
There are so many shades of white out there, its amazing.

What's your favourite white?

Mine would be ivory.

Here are some photos of white interiors I love.

from The Paper Mulberry
White looks great when paired with black accents. The sisal rug and wood table bring in texture into this room.
Suzanne Kasler's office/studio. Isn't it pretty?

From micasa es su casa
A modern bathroom in white. Love the clean lines.

From Greenwich
A clean and simple kitchen in white.

Garden and Gun
White works well in this room - with all the textures and shades of white, it is gorgeous.

I've always loved white bookshelves with a great trim.

A white studio. Love it.

Elle Decor
And of course, who can resist a white, modern kitchen?

I can't.

barn sink

Our new house does not have the luxury of a kitchen sink under a window.

So I can only dream of this for now...

Just the other day I was telling my husband that we should get a dishwasher for our new house. Dishwashing every morning has been taking up a lot of my time. But if I had sink like this, I wouldn't mind doing the dishes every morning! Love the large windows overlooking the green hill, the cement sink and the linen skirt below. It even has a totally cute glass chandelier hanging above.

This is not actually a kitchen sink - it belongs to a conservatory. Here's what it looks like from the outside.

Isn't that just adorable?

Is it only just Wednesday? The middle of the week is usually the busiest day of the week, so let's just enjoy this morning with some beautiful photos of dreamy bedrooms with vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings. Enjoy! 

I love the vibrant colours of the wood, contrasting with blue sheets and grey linens on the sofa. 

A neutral and feminine bedroom with bleached wood beams. Lovely.

Plaster walls, lovely view and blues and chalky greys. Swoon.
Rustic beamed ceilings and plaster walls. Its all about being simple and beautiful. 
I don't really see the point of that hanging frame above the bed - but whatever works. White and greys make a beautiful and serene bedroom. Look at all the lovely textures from the throw, the stool at the dresser, the linen sheets. Love.
Isn't the blue quilt adorable? I love this room. Note the white ceiling gives a great contrast to the wooden beams. Beautiful.
All photos are taken from El Mueble.

Happy Wednesday!

beautiful interiors

I've been a little uninspired lately - could be due to things happening at home. Our son was hospitalised for a few days due to an ongoing fever. But all is fine now. We were rather worried it was dengue, but thank goodness it was not.

So I thought I would roam the world wide web to look for beautiful interiors to update here on this blog. Today's post will be photos from Kelly Harmon Interiors & Design.

Her work is simply gorgeous - see for yourself.

I love how everything is so simple and somewhat 'unfinished'. Like it was unintentionally beautiful.

I love that dramatic bed. Again simple and beautiful - plaster walls, a frameless door, unfinished wood floor, the patina on the plaster frame of the french door, and a touch of elegance of the chaise lounge.

More beamed and vaulted ceilings. I adore the built-in bookcase with the blue walls. An elegant contrast to the other neutral hues of the room.

A touch of detail in the glass chandelier in this bathroom and everything else is left simple and basic. I love the limestone bath and the distressed window.

White and blues used in this clean and uncluttered children's room.

Kelly mentions that her colour palette is 'no-colour' - being inspired from natural sunlight and the outdoors. I love that concept.

The grey stripe matches the grey shutters of the window. I'm in love with all the patina.

A beautiful light and airy guest room.

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday.

things i love in 1 photo...

The other day I wrote about backsplash tiles and how I've been contemplating on mosaic tiles over 4x4 inch tiles (as they are cheaper).

Then I saw this photo.

I am in love. The white tiles, the white and creamware, the open shelves, the thin wood countertops, the white cabinetry, the white washed ceilings. Casual, simple and elegant.

I'll be showing my contractor this photo, for sure.
