Magical White

So pretty is white

especially for a delightful chateau set amongst cool, green gardens allowing the house to be the shining star
White creates breathtaking magic when there is exquisite details
such as carving, rattan or lace



Or pannelled doors with buttoned chairs


With statement glass dressing tables and more mirrors



Amazing armoires showcasing beautiful curves


Intricate walls with pintucked quilts


A mass of white flowers in beautiful blue or green bottles


Jars filled with mother-of -pearl buttons or cutlery


Or tied up in cloth with fraying edges.

Who can deny white when artfully displayed in the details?

  5. FIONA!!!!

    I agree about white. I also agree that a WHITE CHÂTEAU is a marvel of a structure and there is a lovely castle home in my area that is creamy white, with a turret of course and pink trim!! I also am partial to a LUSH GREEN GARDEN with white flowers. At night especially, the flowers almost seem to glow.

    Thank you for visiting. I hope teaching is going well for you!!! Anita
