Living Room Whites and Master Bedroom Updates

Ahhh...summer and whites blend perfectly together.  Simple, easy, calm...
I thought I'd share some whites in our living room today for White Wednesday, as well as give you another sneak peek into the master bedroom transformation.  I wanted to take lots of photos of the master, but the sun has not been shining.  It will have to wait...

This interesting shelf/display piece was found at my local thrift store recently.  The metal 'F' letter is from talented Tracey's store French Larkspur

I love the detail and chipping on this old frame:

The Santos cage doll has been moved to the white desk:

I think she prefers her simple unadorned summer look:

A view of the living room through the looking glass...

I've been busy painting this bedside table and covering our lampshades with vintage monogrammed towels in the master bedroom:

The David Austin 'Secret' rose just bloomed in our garden and smells delightful.  I love how Karen's glittered star looks on this old bottle:

No surprise - I went with a blue/white/cream color combination when making our bed pillows.  The blue fabrics are from the Shabby Chic line, which I was lucky to find on Fabric.com a couple of years ago. 

I'll post the big master bedroom 'reveal' once I get a lot of sun (and time) to take the photos. 
Until then, happy White Wednesday!

Everything is so beautiful! Where do you find your vintage mirrors? I've been looking for some, the type you have without the frames, but they're so hard to find at a reasonable price!

i love all your pretty whites in your living room. The cage doll is very interesting and simply beautiful!

You did a great job on the side table and pillows. How I wish I could sew!! I'm looking forward to the room reveal! :-)

Your "new" bedroom looks dreamy! Can't wait 'til the full reveal... I especially like the shades of soft blue/cream you have selected for your pillows. Happy (belated) White Wednesday. :)

Hi Susan,
Your photos of your whites are lovely! I just wish I knew where to start with changing my decor with white things.

What a gorgeous post. I too love the mirror reflection of your living room. I think I might try that since my straight on shoots never seem to look great concerning my living room. Thanks for featuring my little "star". It looks very happy in your home. :) I will get with you soon via email and fill you in on "life". Thanks for always checking in on me. xoxo
Blessings & Hugs,
