All white on a gray day

Today is cool and overcast and we might actually get a little rain this Labor Day. So I felt this would be the perfect opportunity to paint all of my furniture white.

Yup, shabby chic white, distressed, beachy and feminine.

I am unashamed of the fact that it is easy, clean looking and very calming. I wanted to be daring and add color everywhere - but since I work with so many colors and textures all day long ( and will be very stimulated at the store as well - when we open ). I need a very calming peaceful environment to relax in. The only way to do that is paint everything white.

P.S. How lucky am I that my husband is all for it? :)

Below are pics from Whoopi Goldberg's house here in Malibu ( Broad Beach ) and Pam Anderson's old house in the Colony ( before she moved back in with Tommy Lee back in May ).

Obviously I am in good company with this look.

I'm the same way. I love color more than anything, yet my house is mostly white. Love Shabby Chic. It doesn't get old.

Blue seltzer bottles--how did they become so de rigueur? A wine bar (where I was the brunch cook) had them, and now I see them everywhere I turn.
