Good morning everyone!
How are you all doing? Is the weather as gorgeous where you are as it is here in Montreal?
Warmclearblueskies kind of gorgeous?
My mind has been in decor mode for the last 2 weeks now that we know we're moving ( our house sold - you can see our current house HERE ) and the new place will include lots and lots of white - mainly white in fact - something I've never done in my life ( which is pretty shocking because I'm SUCH a black and white person )
I thought this week I'd go room by room and show you my inspiration pics - so today's room is the living room.
( and of course that's if we get this house otherwise it's back to the drawing board )
Doesn't that bench in the below photo remind you of the one that John built a lttle HERE ?
And of course this one - you can see the whole house HERE
Have a wonderful Monday all !!!
Hope all my fellow Canucks had a wonderful Thanksgiving :)

I'm with you on the whitewashing of new house. It will look amazing. That fireplace will look fabulous with white.ReplyDelete
are you definitely getting that cute little fixer upper?ReplyDelete
I don't envy you your packing to move, Suzan. We have never moved in 36 years of marriage!! It would be awful but sometimes I think it would be great as I would actually get rid off a lot of stuff. I like white rooms as long as there is some colour in it. With a white palette one can change decor and colours easily but I really do prefer some colour in my home - not bright but warm. We do live in Canada after all. I like colour in the long cold winters to make it feel cozy. Did you have your Thanksgiving dinner already? We had ours on Saturday. Today is yard work day. Have fun packing!ReplyDelete
I'm sick of beige too. And while I'm not having an all-white interior, I AM having lots of white trim. Have you made an offer? Inquiring minds want to know...ReplyDelete
Suzan, as usual, I will be doing a ton of pinning before I leave your blog. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful "shades of white" with us dreamers. Hope you had a great Canuck Thanksgiving. I have been learning a lot about your beautiful country from your blog. Hope to visit it firsthand before I die. So far, the closest I've come in the Canada pavilion at Walt Disney World. Thanks for the decor inspiration and ideas on this post!ReplyDelete
You'll have so much fun decorating a new home. I'm just wondering if you would paint the floor and the ceiling white. I so love the natural color of wood....it goes with any decor. Wish I was there to help you pack! Sweet hugs!ReplyDelete
Ooo those are so pretty! I love John's bench - perfection! I've always wanted a white room but before I know it, color has sneaked in. Lol. I painted all the paneling and cabinets at the farm white and what a huge difference it made. Wish I was there to help you pack! Can't wait to see what you do to your new place ( keeping my fingers crossed for you!) Happy thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
LOVE all your inspiration pictures, Suzan. I can't wait to see if you end up with that sweet little place you found. I know you must be feeling overwhelmed at this point- xoReplyDelete
I want that disco ball! lol This post could have said....At first I was afraid I was petrified!! Looks like you are going to have a blast decorating! Wish I could help!ReplyDelete
You know me Suzan and white. It will be gorgeous. This is going to be so much fun for you and what a creative outlet. Good luck I know you will love working with white.ReplyDelete
Hey! I have tons of beige in my house thankyouverymuch!!! lol I still love beige, and greige and white and colour and, and, and... I can never stick with anything for long! Must be the artist in me. Happy Thanksgiving Suzan! Hope your move is an easy one. Did you read my post on tips for a smooth move?? It might be just the ticket! http://designdreamsbyanne.blogspot.ca/2013/10/moving-101-or-how-to-move-without.htmlReplyDelete
I knew those boxes were coming! LABEL them all for each room. You will be so tired you won't remember what is in each one if you don't. Best of luck!♥♫ReplyDelete
You can find the most amazing Eye candy, Praying for energy and Luck in your move...SherylReplyDelete
You can never go wrong with an all white base and add in pops of color seasonally!ReplyDelete
All white? Wouldn't that be chilly for your cold climate. I like warmer whites. If we ever move, we will sell the house as is and just walk away with nothing! I hate packing. Good luck with the new move.ReplyDelete
Was recently watching a couple of cute Canadians, The Property Brothers and they took a lady's wish for all white, added just a bit of color and grey, and it was so perfect. Love those guys. Love the white rooms!!!ReplyDelete
Did you really meet Annie Sloan?? (stupid, I see that on the photos he,he) So very fun.
Did you buy the house here on top? I follow you step by step, so I have to know, smile.
Hugs from me
Really beautiful rooms! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I am your newest follower.
packing is just the worst but unpacking oh now that will be happyReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what you do in the new place!ReplyDelete
I love the inspiration photos. I look forward to seeing your selection!ReplyDelete
Love all the inspiration here. John would never go for white and although I love it I need some color. We are more of the soft muted gold's and Historical colors by Benjamin Moore for khaki colors. I hope you get this house. Did you bid yet or are you still thinking about it?ReplyDelete
Love the white - but I wouldn't be able to whitewash the wood floors. And that stone chimney - stunning! Fingers crossed you'll get it.ReplyDelete
Love the house you have chosen - hope all goes well. I love the white inspiration photos but I do have a question. Will the house not feel colder, during the winter, with that much white? As a fellow Canadian I know that whites can sometimes "feel" cold and I wonder how you are going to deal with that? BTW - Happy Thanksgiving to you!ReplyDelete
It's a charming little house. I know you will make it amazing. Can't wait to see the transformations as they happen :-)ReplyDelete
I hope you get that house Suzan. It is soooo cute and the idea of all white is fabulous. I love all white rooms personally. Although at the same time you do need a hit of black to make the white pop.ReplyDelete
As I said, I can't wait to see what you do with the next house. I am expecting some lessons here. xoGingerReplyDelete
Loving your white inspiration. Whatever house you end up in, you'll have so much fun making it gorgeous...and we'll have fun coming along for the ride!ReplyDelete
Packing is no fun...but decorating your new home will be lots of fun and I love white décor!!ReplyDelete
I see a scandinavian style with all the white and grey. It's excitingReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing how you implement the all white plan...I can see why these photos inspire you. Love the clean and peaceful feeling of all white!ReplyDelete
I kind of like all white because it leaves lots of room for adding pops of seasonal colors throughout the year. Every time I move and start packing, I swear I'm going to start the minimalist life style..LOL!ReplyDelete
Packing and moving is no fun, but decorating a new place will be a fun challenge and I can't wait for the "John said, Suzan said" about the move.ReplyDelete
I love white everything, too - but my dog is always a bit dirty, even though she is not allowed on the furniture. So, white it is, but mixed with other colors! ;-)ReplyDelete
A whole week of white? I love you! Great inspiration pictures and soon you'll have your own little white house to "whitify"!ReplyDelete
I am dreaming of white too....love your beautiful inspiration!ReplyDelete
Love all those white wide plank floors. Hope you get that house!! My fingers are crossed for you!!ReplyDelete
Love all the great white cottage inspiration! I'm visiting from the WOW party. I would love to invite you to share this at our new link party Modern Cottage Mondays at Curate by Carrie Corson:) http://curatebycarriecorson.com/2013/10/14/31-days/ReplyDelete
I love the house Suzan and am praying that you get it. I am a fan of white everything so I am with you on all of the decorating choices. I just did the beige box thing and it is not fun. Because I moved across country everything had to be boxed, my collection of mirrors and nick nacks is not fun when you have to box them. I had 12 mirror boxes, 2 wardrobe boxes full of lamps etc and 35 rubber made totes. And all of that is in storage for now until I have a plan. Cost me double what the movers had quoted, make sure you check out references if you use a mover. Can't wait to see what you do to the house and crossing my fingers that you get it. hugs TobeyReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures! I have no doubt your white house will be gorgeous when you are through. I'm doing our house white and I've never done it before either. Funny how certain houses just call for it...I think its all the wood or something. It just needs white.ReplyDelete
