Rustic Whites

My focus this summer season

is adding touches of a

rustic feel to the Dior home...

{Custom Pillows}

 by lovely Rose of The Tarnished Crown

{Curb side finds}

Vintage leather chair and an old

luggage stand topped with glass

 for a quick end table...

An old piece of wood scaffold

propped against the wall

for character...

Old produce crate to house some beach wood

{Curb side reclaimed wood}

Used for a head board

white washed in gray

fits nicely with linens from the Goodwill.

 All linens from the Simply Shabby Chic

line sold at Target.

{ I rotate five local Goodwills to purchase Target overstock}

Beautiful coral in our home

from my friend Loretta...

Wood Lamp and linen shade

are both Goodwill finds

I painted a chalk gray wash over the lamp base

{Perfect for relaxing}

{I love mixing old wood with white}

This week I will be joining some very

lovely ladies...

{Sneak Peek}

 These bold & graphic 

custom pillows made by my friend Rose

inspired me for a design project

that I will be sharing in

the upcoming weeks...

Much love to each of you

You have SUCH a gift of mixing neutrals, Kate! I love the fact that you can do it without spending a ton of money, too. :) Your bedroom is just gorgeous!

Lovely as always! We just got a Goodwill here in Redding- I remember those days living in Orange being able to hope from one thrift store to another!

Your bedroom is so soothing. I just love all your organic touches. Great finds. I can't believe it. I found a similar leather chair curbside, but sold it. It had a taller back. Wish I'd kept it.

You and I think alike girl....I love the weathered wood mixed with whites. So soothing!!! All your bedding is beautiful as well.

I'm hoping to do a little redo in both my daughter's bedrooms this Summer and new bedding is a major part of it. We've been looking at Target recently trying to decide:-)

Kate...just spectacular. You do some amazing decorating on the dime. WOW! I'm inspired to tighten my purse strings after reading your post. My favorite of your finds is the luggage rack turned into an end table with glass top. Impressive!

So beautiful! I just found your link over on Common Ground and I love how you added in the box of twigs--such a great contrast to the white.

Kate, your home is so beautiful and serene. A piece of scaffold, now who would have thought? I love the wooden box. I also love mixing old with new, but you do it oh so well! I am loving all the white and thinking I need more. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
