Crisp, Clean, Pretty and Lived in......

I was tagged by my good friend Heather at The Mezzanine to show one photo that expresses my style. I love this idea! I always enjoy looking at magazines and to search the web for cool decorating ideas, so I was on board right away. I know I am only suppose to show 1 picture, but I could'nt stop there. I just kept going, so forgive me for not following the rules. I love the lived in feel of this living room. All the books, vintage goodies and of course the slipcover. and just a touch of "pretty" in the floral pillow.


I LOVE white furniture and woodwork. The dark floor softened by the rug and lots of light coming through the windows. Love, love, love!



This kitchen hutch, is me to a "T". I love everything about it! Mostly I love that it is white though. I dont think I would like it nearly as much if it were wood.




Old architectural pieces like the headboard hold a soft spot in my heart! I also love the white linens on the bed with a touch of color in the throw pillows and comforter. I would say that my style is crisp white painted furniture, a touch of pretty in a lived in country cottage!

Now I'm going to tag:


-Tracy, at Loving Pretty Things

-Nora, at Faithful Days

-Lissa, at A Dash of Humble Pie

These picks are you. All the way. Love the cozy sofa with the bookcase behind it and the pale blue dining room. But the bedroom is probably my favorite. Very pretty feminine rooms. Congrats on the new business, too, by the way. Where will it be located?
