Sometimes I get obsessed. Yes, it's true. I'm the girl that reads countless fashion and interior magazines in the office, out of the office, while getting a pedicure, in the car (as a passenger of course), before I go to bed...basically, all the time. Over the years my inspiration "file" has turned into countless bits of inspiration, and I literally have to edit my Pinterest boards. While I do love color, I also really love the simplicity of white. Mix it with cream and layers of texture and almost every time I am sold. I have a cream sofa in the studio, another in my apartment living room, and a white one in my bedroom sitting area. Each vignette with a completely different look, loaded with pillows, and texture all around.
I'm also a sucker for a mix of pretty patterns on a crisp white canvas, garden party pottery and dining chairs slipcovered in (washable) denim too. Bringing typically indoor elements outside (like lamps and carpets) is a great way to soften any space. A painted porch ceiling and the glow it gives its living space is a detail not to be overlooked. The only change I might make would be adding a few more plants (like this one)...something on a larger scale to make you feel like you are relaxing outside.
So, now that I have come clean about the white in my interior life, I need to confess I have also (for weeks now) been on the hunt for the perfect pair of white denim jeans. And while you may consider it to be an easy task, I have struggled mightily! After countless web searches and dressing room drama, I have narrowed it down to two (these and these).
They are the perfect work day and/or weekend wardrobe staple to be dressed up or down. Speaking of which, only one more day to go, and Friday is here! Guess you know what I'll be wearing!
