Winter White

Hi Darlin's
Hope your enjoying this beautiful Saturday!

I have my own specific shade that I am drawn to. 
Years ago I named it Winter White.

The richness & textures are so romantic & cozy...


Winter is the season to enjoy textiles...
I so wish we had cold weather here in SO CAL to do just that!
The richness & textures are so romantic & cozy.

A pair of vintage skis...what a find.
That delightful texture is obviously from many years of fun!

White Birch trees....Yum I love them, 
This vintage planter box was found at our old beach house from the 40's. 
My dad cut these birch logs many many years ago. I treasure them, they won't ever see the firebox!!! 
They came from Wisconsin.


 I adore this gorgeous vintage house...
I sure would love to peak inside wouldn't you?
 I can only imagine the beautiful architectural detail and craftsmanship....


Now this would be a cozy space to enjoy a afternoon nap...


Large windows letting the winter light in... Paneled walls, so elegant.

"My favorite white is Winter White" I think it's a vintage classic.

My Design tip: Choosing white accessories for your winter spaces will be beautiful. A light feeling to start off the new year.

Hop over to SECOND SHOUT OUT BLOG & visit my shop Casual Loves Elegance for some winter White items...

Have a gorgeous weekend,


  1. Hi Gail,
    I lové the beauty in grey, white, and rustic to elegance you always inspire here. I even love the shout outs to the furniture web site you have, it's all so divine.
    I too have lost all my family, I just have my mother, her sister and my 3 siblings left and things that find there way into my home have this hidden treasured memory without a constant daily reminder that jumps out at you with sadness.

    I too live in Southern Calif, my family was in the movie picture industry and so on, perhaps someday we will bump into each other, or plan a moment we can share some inspiring visit time. It would be great to meet you, I find you full of beautiful inspiration.

    A beautiful week ahead of you.


    1. Hi! I'm so glad we visit each other, we seem to be inspired by much of the same beauty!!! This year we will have to try to coordinate a get together! It would be lovely to meet you as well....
      Thank you for your sweet comment.
      I hope you have a beautiful week.

  2. I LOVE whites too.....The pictures you've shared are beautiful! The house is breathtaking! Hubby and I are currently gutting a cedar shake walls will be white except a knotty pine living and upstairs bedroom. My hubby refuses to let me paint the LR...but says I can the upstairs bedroom...any suggestions? Blessings and a wonderful week~~~Roxie

    1. Hi Roxie, How exciting. cedar shake is one of my favorite. First I have a couple questions, about the walls...Does the paneling go to the ceiling? Is the ceiling paneled? What are the floors? Let me know and I can give you suggestions from there. Thank you Have a beautiful week! xo
