Going Lighter and Brighter

First off lets have a big CONGRATS to:

~~ It's Sew You ~~
you are the WINNER of the giveaway I was hosting for

~~Congrats ~~ YAY...throwing confetti....
A big thank you to everyone that entered...
I have been on a white mission lately
taking the warm colors out and adding in Whites and Creams all over
I painted my kitchen white and the cabnets white and now the living room
is yes white..well a cream
I wanted to share a couple insperational rooms with you that I have found
looking around blog world...
These pictures have just sucked me in and made me want to try this
thing/color called WHITE...
It is soon drawing near to picture taking time so I can show you some
of my before and afters.

but for now let me just dream of these rooms and share them with you..
I saw this cute little kitchen over at Someday Crafts Blog

just a simple clean looking kitchen...Actually the blog was on beadboard and differnt things you can do with it...I LOVE BEADBOARD
and I love how they added it to the fridge front...Oh did I mention I got my new
white stove the other day for my kitchen....oh yes, excited...
so clean and calming...(I know, I  soon..soon I promise..

Ok so now unto the next lovely white room I love..
I found this bright little spot over at the
French Farmhouse 425
I would love to not have curtains on my windows...but I just can't do it..
The sun beams down on the front of my house ALL day from morning to evening...
I have to keep curtains and shades up to help keep that heat out in
those hot summer days..

 I saw this living room over at
Secret Garden Cottage
can I have the big window over top the fireplace...LOVE it
I also really love the white slipcovers but found that it would not be a great
idea to have in my instead I bought a beige one for my couch and
a tan one for my chair...

Ok so these are a few rooms I found that were nice and bright...Do you love whites??
This is a big change for me because I am a woman who loves color...but I am
up for a change in 2011....Are you??
Do something differnt this year...


  1. YEAY congrats !!!!!!

    Love the pics here it'd be full of mud at my house though. Funny how the chairs in white with the lavender thing on the wall is EXACTLY what i had - sold it though-5 yr old and white does NOT go :)

  2. its hard to get white to go with anything I think...thank goodness paint is
