White Wednesday

I was looking thru some of my many magazines recently and thought I would share some of these gorgeous rooms for my White Wednesday post, seems like when I looking at my magazine, that's just about all that catches my eye is the beautiful whites.... and of course I love the pinks too, and anything that looks old world, like it's been there for a 100 years!

Love this room, it's one of my favorites!
My favorite part of this is the gorgeous shabby chic very large mirror that is leaning against the wall!

My pictures didn't turn out that good, but this is a picture from Jessica McClintocks's book, I love, love, love her style, the pictures in her book are all so gorgeous!
This is another picture from Jessica McCintock's book... again just gorgeous!
Now if you haven't gotten yourself this book, you should it's wonderful... I have looked at it over and over! I just recently started reading some of the things written in the book, and the writing is just beautiful... I could really relate to the things she wrote on page 36! I usually just look at the beautiful pictures.... but I'm glad that I did read it, the words or beautiful!!! Hope you enjoyed, for more gorgeous Whites be sure to go over to Kathleens http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ & visit all the other participants!

Oh yes, to die for. Especially that huge mirror on the floor. I could never get my husband to be comfortable in a home like this.

What is the name of Jessica's Book? I may have it, but if I don't I'll certainly look for it. Like you I am drawn to the shades of White look... probably because I shall probably never attain it in my own Bohemian color saturated World full of kids, pets and menfolk who would certainly be hard on an all White scene *wink*... at least all my Boheme tones hide some of the wear and tear... and dust... and dirt... and... well, you get the picture!!! *LOL* I look at my Books, saved Magazines and articles that I've put into Inspiration Books often too... it transports me to other Worlds on the canvas of my imagination...

Beautiful and all so inspiring!
I've got The Feminine Home and Jessica McClintock's romantic book as well. Isn't Jessica's book so informational too, I learned much from her book about vintage & antique special pieces.

Happy WW!

I love looking through old books and magazines! Haven't done that in a while, after seeing this post I might have to take some time and just do that! Have a great week!

Julie (Legacy Crafter) said...

I have this weird love affair with magazines (craft, decorating, etc.)and really like the pictures you are sharing above. Doesn't white look great in photos (especially if it is tattered or faded a little).

Thanks for stopping by my blg and have a great day tomorrow.
God Bless,julie

I have a massive collection of magazines. I just can't part with them...and now I have some issues that are no longer publishing.

I loved all of the photos. I don't have that book but that cover image is so dreamy. I love it.

I'm visiting for White Wednesday. Have a wonderful day,

Stephanie ♥
