Yummy Whites

Am I the only person who goes all over house wanting to change everything?  We have lived in our home for around 15 years and with three children all in college for the past 5 years I haven't been able to update in a while.  Well now that I have one off the payroll (Emily got married yeah!!).  lol  I have a little bit in the budget to start redoing some things.  The only problem with that is I want to change everything now!! I'll have to take baby steps though. 
I really want to change my bedroom.  I want it took look cozy with a little worn frenchy looking.  Is that a style? 
I've been searching the net looking for inspiration.  I thought I would share some of my finds.

I love everything about this room the walls the ceiling.  The whites and greys with a little bit of pattern.  The different florals used in the pillow and the sofa love love.

Can you say wow!! The cream and white bedding with the wispy bed ruffle love.  I think the antique mirror is to die for.  And I think the whimsy red flooring just is the cherry on top.

Even though I love the mostly white rooms I'll probably use more prints and some florals in my bedroom.  I just need to get it figured out.  I just bought a bed and armoire last year and I can't change it the hubs will kill me.  It's a dark wood so I hope I can get it to work out with the white look.  Anywhoo I think I'm up for the challenge especially since I can always ask you guys for advice.  Blogging don't you love it?


  1. Love the last picture, the soft color really makes the white shine! Good luck, can't wait to see what you do!

  2. I agree with Cindy. I like all three, but I love the third picture best. I like dark wood against stark white or creamy white walls. I know your room is going to look gorgeous when you finish redecorating!!!

  3. Oh- I can't wait to see what you do. I like dark wood against white myself. My hubby insisted on a dark wood bedroom I, like you, am stuck working with it. It IS hard not to go a little crazy once you get started, isn't it? xxoo Diana

  4. Beautiful inspiration photos!! I wanted all the furniture in my home painted white but now am glad I never got around to painting it all. I love the wood against the whites!

  5. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!


  6. I LOOOVVVE the room in the second picture, now I want to change my bedroom! Can't wait to see what you come up with! XOXO

  7. I know exactly what you mean! I'm not the kind of person who needs all new things but I do like change. A lot! So yes, I walk through the house and see things all over the place I'd like to paint, move or change in some way! Absolutely LOVE the first photo!
