  1. I love your statement – “embrace imperfections”. I have many beautiful items from my grandmothers and great-grandmother, that are still in pristine condition. But I also have wonderful pieces that show that they’ve been used – a brown crockery mixing bowl with a crack down the side that I love to use for raising yeast bread doughs…..hand-knit lace edging that was originally on a pair of my great-grandmother’s pillowcases that I’m planning to use on a decorator pillow, even though some of the edges are raveling……a porcelain vase that belonged to my mother, with a chipped, three-dimensional rose on it’s side; it still has a place of honor on my piano, which was handed down to me by my grandmother, with it’s own signs of wear. All represent memories handed down over generations.

  2. I love all white rooms too. I recently turned an extra bedroom into a sitting room. I used my old French provincial childhood furniture and added white, cream, pink, grey and silver accents throughout.

  3. I love all white rooms. About 20 years ago I discovered a heavy white fabric that I upholster in, not slipcovers, that is cleanable with clear Ivory dishsoap and water. All my sofas and chairs, including dining room chairs, are upholstered in this and I don’t worry about stains. I now have a black cat who is outdoors in the day and inside at night. No problem with pet wet feet, kids, sloppy guests, etc. I believe the manufacturer is Silver State and it is part of the Sunbrella line [but not part of the boat awning line]. I purchase it online from a company called Outdoor Fabrics. Hope that helps for people who want white upholstery. It is possible to have white and keep the upholstery clean.

  4. I’ve always had white rooms and perhaps they aren’t the most practical but they’re so lovely and enveloping. I too have dogs (found mongrels) with full access but I have everything slipcovered and utilize throws and quilts everywhere. My theory has always been that no matter what the color it’s still going to get dirty you just can see it better with white so my house is always freshly laundered.

  5. Although very appealing, white isn’t ‘t practical for me. Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has house privileges to all rooms and would be certain to leave her prints.
