At Home With White

So there's only a tiny bit of blue/turquoise in these beautiful images I discovered on The City Sage, but that's the point. These photos come from the book At Home With White by Atlanta Bartlett. I never really saw too much appeal in a mostly white room (I LOVE color!), but ever since spying Wren's nursery (and Holly's gorgeous home!) from Life in the Fun Lane, I am completely drawn to it. Little bits of color make such an impact. And I love that.

I LOVE the white, soft turquoise seat cushions on the bench and the wide plank wall boards.
