chalky whites and shimmering silvers


Recently found this lovely post over at Gathering Spriggs and thought I would bring some of the tattered glory back here for you. I have posted before about the locations company 1st Option but this just got me all overwhelmed again hoping we can move into a house next year and have more rooms to decorate with chalky whites and shimmering silvers.


The two houses featured here are Myddelton House and Richmond Road.

All images 1st Option.net


Ps still trying to sort out a face Book, so look out for the link in the side bar, I apologise to anyone who already added me I thought it was good to go but it was a profile not a fan page oops!

So stunning. I love the tailors dummy, my husband bought one for me about twenty years ago now,I think she might be Edwardian because of her shape, she is now adorned with a necklace of fairy lights.

So lovely! I am especially drawn to the dark hardwoods in the 2nd photo against the neutral color palette!

Oh, this is one of my favourite websites. I'd love to be able to carry off this shabby chic look.

hi - I came across your blog today and it's lovely. My husband and I are looking for a new house in Wales (our current one sold today!) and this was really inspiring. Chalky whites - oh yes!

I adore this beyond belief! The perfect style for a home or apartment - cozy, yet stylish. xx

Waw! Thank you for posting about this, these rooms are utter perfection. I love how the white walls almost are like a blank canvas, used to express the person's personality through interior design. Does that even make sense? I don't know, but I do loveeee these rooms!
