When all else fails, USE white

There are all kinds of jobs, businesses and services in the world... the internet helps us broaden our knowledge of what is available and services we can or may offer as a business. We never quite think about it but how do magazines, commercials we view on TV scout out locations? Such beautiful locations and backgrounds in pictures. Well.... I found a site, a site that is the inspiration for today's blog. 


When all else fails use WHITE. 


This site scouts out locations for stylists. I found some fantastic inspirational photos from their site. 

Back to the subject of my blog. The color White....


Some people considered using white as a "cop out"....I beg to differ. 


An all white room is very difficult to pull off. 


It is important to make sure your whites match just like any other color combination. 


There are many, many shades of white. Blue tones, grey tones, pink tones, yellow tones etc...


The wrong combination can throw off your whole room and you won't be able to put your finger on it.


You can still have fun with it. 


Add a soft element here and there. 


Have fun with.....


Texture....and


Add an element of surprise...it will stand out. Here they used a large faced clock. 


Here they used a different shade of gray for one of the kitchen cabinets. 


In the end it all works beautifully together and is very "a la mode" , serene and tranquil. 
So when all else fails just go "WHITE"

All things to inspire and desire

When I started my blog I had no clue where it would lead me. The one thing I did know, when I sat down to write my words I felt the desire to do more.  It inspired me, made me grow and find the person I had once lost. So many of you in blog land have inspired me and helped me regain my confidence. Women raising children, keeping things together and running successful blogs. You and I know how tough it is and how time consuming it is to keep up at it. Today...I feel alive once again. It is such a great feeling.  I would like to share a few inspirational photos, and I will soon be sharing some wonderful news. 


All things to inspire and desire


Of things yet to come


The industrial Chic movement and influence


Colors that inspire 

Colors I desire


Objects to inspire you
Objects that inspire me!

Naturals, neutrals....

one of a kind treasures

The unexpected 

Vintage finds, two of a kind.


Do what you love and frame it. 


found objects....


Many of these photos come from the Paper Mulberry. I think it is one of my most favorite blogs and one that has inspired and influenced my taste. 

I hope I gave you the desire for vintage finds and inspired you today. 
 Come back to share my great news and inspirations. 

My words to inspire for the day.

Keep Steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.
