Romantic whites

Amidst the parade of colour and dazzling lights at this time of year, I'm craving a solitude in romantic whites and neutrals. The perfect holiday oasis to cuddle up and relax after the blitz of holiday parties...

With gilded gold details, sparkling clear crystal and plush white, it still has just the right amount of glamour to make it festive and special for the holidays.

Antiques and small nostalgic details are always perfect for the holiday season - the tradition and sense of history associated with this period are such a big part of it's allure.

Soft romantic ruffles against natural wood tones. Glimpses of gold against white.
All is calm, all is bright...

what a perfect post. when all else fails, or our moods are in flux, white is the classic stand-by but at the same time can be manipulated and get more and more creative as time goes by, keeping it so very non-boring. i want to be in that first photo, looking up at that wirey chandelier :)
