Do you love white?

Hi Bloggerettes!  I am a big fan of the all white bedroom.  I've tried color and I always feel like something is missing or something is just not right.  So, all white is what I love.
I also like things painted white, like this old french provencial side table....remember this style?  I found it at Habitat, painted it
white and shabbied it up a little and there ya go.

A very pretty cottage table at Miss Minnie's

I am liking this yellow desk at Miss Minnie's even
though, in my opinion, it would look better in white.

Check out this fabulicious vintage wicker
table painted white...

Do you love white, or are you all about color?

You know, Sissy, when you do white it looks Gorgeous. When I do all's another 'G' word....Ghastly or Ghostly or Gawful or GwashedOut...that's a new word...yep, just made it up! So I guess I'll have to say this GRIT is all about COLOR! You keep doin''re sooooo good at it!

Donna said...

Do I love white?!! Yes, oh yes! Some day my dream is to live in a home full of white beadboard walls! With an all white bathroom and an old fashioned clawfoot tub! Now, I love our home, but dear hubby put up lots of cedar on the walls thru out our home (1980's style), before I came on the scene. He loves wood, I love painted wood! Ha! Love all of your beautiful whites!

Angela said...

Hey Sissie!

I LOVE white! When I first married we lived in an apartment that had white carpet and white walls. We bought a white couch and white curtains and I loved it! It was calming. I wish I could have all of that white again but unfortunately with 2 kids ages 12 and 6 there is no way I can have white until they grow up and move out! hehehe


Linda said...

I love white when you do it! Me I guess I feel like I need color. I do like some soft colors!

Lori said...

i actually like both...i would love to live with all white...but i live with three messy boys...and three messy just wouldn't work out very well i am afraid...

Brenda-shabbycatsandroses said...

Hi Sissie, Yes, I do love white, especially white furniture, but I gotta have my pink in there too (and some pretty green). You know me, lol :)

Love the pretty furniture you have shown us :)

Have a great evening my friend, warmest always, Brenda

I love an all white room and it's definitely your style.

As for me, I couldn't pull it off, for one I'm all about COLOR and most importantly how to keep an all white room/house clean!! Nope, can't do the white glove test here, LOL


stefanie said...

i love whites mixed with pastels...I love your bed.

The French Bear said...

Love your whites, and all of the other goodies I see in there!!!
It is very calming and relaxing to have white and creams. Well, until you have to clean them!!!

See Sissie...the problems is, I need a multi wing house. That way I could have all the styles and colors that I enjoy. I do love the white shabby chic look, but my hubby not so much. When we moved to this home, it was Old World...darker colors....which I also love...I am very fickle...I love it all!

Donna said...

Hey Sissie, I love colors. But when I see all your white, I love white, too!! I just need about 3 or 4 houses to have all the styles I love. Have a great day Smiles, Donna

Kathy said...

And a fairy light pastels...
mostly PINK!
Bet that took everyone by surprise!!!!Ha!
Lovin your bedroom Sissie,

KATHY said...

Hi Sissie, yes i love white!!Your home looks beautiful with all that dreamy white....Kathy

Jane said...

I love your whites and they all look so beautiful in your home. I'm more of a color gal. I have always been drawn to earth tones. But I have to say after seeing all the beautiful shades of white that I see posted for WW, I'm thinking more white in my house wouldn't be a bad thing.

Polly said...

I love white and cream. I like to mix the two. Color scares me! Sometimes I'll a little pop here or there, but generally, I end up taking it away not long thereafter! I am drawn to icy blues and sagey greens though. I consider them both neutrals and mix them in!

Your white bedroom is gorgeous!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I like color, but I do like white, too. I like seeing white in other people's homes, like your bedroom, Sissie! Not too much color, not all white ~ I need a happy medium!

Cathy said...

Oh know I adore all of your beautiful white and there is a huge part of me that would love to have a home with that serene and tranquil color scheme but...I am a color girl! I adore color...the sofa in my family room is apple green and the one in my living room is red. Yep...I am a color girl!

I will be coming back again and again to enjoy your keep it coming!


June said...

Well I love white!!! I love color too, but I love white in all it's shades just as much. All of your pictures are gorgeous Sissy. I love the table that you painted. It was a wonderful find.


Hi Sissie, I love all your whites, especially the french provencial side table. I also love the white cottage table at Miss Minnie's! Thanks for sharing all your whites today!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Hi Sissie....Thanks for stopping by and checking out my newly transformed mirror! I love a lot of white but I do like pastel colors too. I think it depends on what room it is. I love your transformations!~Hugs, Patti

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Luv that beautiful vintage wicker table! Hope you have a FUN Thursday:)


T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Sissie, thanks for stopping by. I do love the look of white, but isn't very practical in this dusty country we live in. Plus, two messy boys and a hairy cat wouldn't bode well for it either. Maybe one day -- in years to come. Lots of lovely treasures in your previoust post. You always share your beauty with the world. Blessings, Tammy

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Hi Sissie!
Great photos!
I do love mostly white, but I love pops of muted color throughout my home.

LOVE that darling yellow table!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Riet said...

I love your whites Sissie and I am looking in my house what I can paint white. LOl Have a great day

Lululiz said...

I love white bedlinen, especially the beautifully embroidered antique French linens. Can't beat a bed all done in crisp whites. Having said that, during the day, I do like to put eiderdowns or Durham quilts on top.

My name is PJ. said...

I love white, but I can't have white bedding because muddy paws and black animal hair clash with it.

I love the little table you got at Miss Minnies and the yellow would definitely look better white.

But I really love 'fabulicious'. Did you make that up? It should be a word!!

A Cottage Muse said...

I love everything white...and I dream in vintage whites!! Have a wonderful day!!

Paula said...

Love love white! is the most refreshing 'color' :)

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

Hey Sassie! oooops, I mean Sissie! ;)

Girl, are you sure you have a Mr. Sissie up in that house with all that white and those fancy frills? I just can't believe that...are you sure it was your anniversary and those roses came from him? Well, if it is true, he's a keeper as I ain't ever seen a frilly house as beautiful as yours with a MAN in it! hahahaha!
Happy Anniversary Diana!!! :)

I'm loving those hydrangeas (my fav flower in the whole wide world) and as for that Victorian die for! Can you imagine some dried and faded bunches of hydrangeas placed in there? oh...the possiblities are endless girl...that was a great buy!

Well, now since I'm all jealous, I'm ending my blog hopping for the morning here. I can't bear to see any more beautiful've totally helped me reach my max before finishing my first can of Dr. Pepper! :)))

Have a wonderful WONDERFUL Memorial weekend!!!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Hey there, I love the way YOU do white. I'm sort of joining the crowd, white here would be gray in no time. But I definitely am moving toward more neutral colors and have a sore back to prove it! I always love seeing what you have at Miss Minnies. Love that white "cottage" Eastlake table!

Sherrie said...

Sissie, I know I should be answering your question white or color, but instead just have to comment on a new word FABULICIOUS! I just love your vocabulary. Yup I am afraid that I have to start using this word too. Again I have to ask, do you charge royalties?

junkdreams said...

Hi Sissie,
I, like you, can NEVER get enough white....I especially love how white seems to bring out the wonderful detail in old wood pieces.
Have a happy day!

Paula said...

Hi sweet Sissie! I love white and I am always adding more to my home. As much as I love pink, I always wish I had more whites!!! Your bedroom is gorgeous and I love all of the pretty white tables you shared. I agree the yellow one would be gorgeous painted white! Love, Paula

Hi Sissie,
Somehow I stumbled upon your blog and I'm thrilled to say the least. I'll be back often to check your wonderful posts which are just right up my alley. Have a wonderful day.

Shellbelle said...

I have one question — can you come to my little house and bring your paint brush?

Thanks for the advice on the paint, I'm going next week to get both. I have a chair I thought I would start with first. If I don't mess that up too much, I'll move on to the bigger pieces. Wish me luck.

Dorthe said...

Hi Sissie,

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Good day Sissie...I love white in your home...but not in mine..I have to have color around me...but love yours...Hope you are having a great day my friend..Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria said...

Hey my sweet Sissie girl,
There you go, showing my bedroom again. Guess what, I have that same french provincial side table. Love it. Love that wicker desk too. Want to see a better pic, more close up, of the botanical behind the bed. And to answer your question....Yes, I love me some white. But I always have to throw in a touch of black. And lately burlap. Specifically, burlap pillows made by a phenomenal pillow maker! Lisa

Shelia said...

Hi Sissie! Oh, I love white but I also like color! I don't think my hubby would like all white and I think I'm too silly for all white! Colors seem to make me pop! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kathysue said...
