Back with Color Moods

Sorry I disappeared. Between the road and spending time with family.. I lost time for blogging. 
I think I have been inspired by all this chilly winter weather we've received lately. 
Warning: You might want to wrap up in a warm blanket before you stroll through these winter white pictures.




Black is always a good accent for white.

If you want to start with white on your walls or even furniture, here are some recommended colors:

• 912 Linen White, Benjamin Moore
• 2003 Pointing, Farrow & Ball
• SW6385 Dover White, Sherwin-Williams
• 7002-6 Du Jour, Valspar
• 0001 Hollandlac Brilliant White, Fine Paints of Europe
In our home we started with warmer, richer colors on the walls and then brought in white accents through accessories, and some furniture.

Any other suggestions for using white in a home?

Gorgeous rooms. I'm not usually a huge black and white fan but those first two rooms are great.

I love white! I use a lot of White Dove by Benjamin Moore for cabinetry. It's not too bright with a little warmth. Perfect!

Oh I am in LOVE with the peacock wallpaper! Very crisp and fresh, yet feminine too.
