With a move pending in the near future for me and my family, I've been in serious design planning mode! For years I've admired the shabby chic look with all the white and soft floral patterns, but was hesitant to use it with a little boy and a hubby that love the outdoors, not to mention a dog that loves to dig!
It all started with our first house we bought. It came with pretty white cabinets, white countertops, and white floors. The only thing is they didn't stay that way without a lot of cleaning. It consumed me.
I'm having flashbacks now of walking behind my guys with a rag and cleaner, wiping and scrubbing...
But once again, I've fallen for my love of white after seeing many beautiful, white homes in blogland. I even bought a white slipcover for my couch! It stays covered with a blanket most of the time and it's kind of been a hassle to put back on after it's regular cloroxing, but I'm up for the maintenance... for now anyways.
Here are some inspirations I'm keeping in mind (actually on my Pinterest boards) for the next house:
Thanks to blogland, I can now define my favorite decorating style as Vintage Coastal Chic.
What do you call your style?
