First White Wednesday

Welcome to my first White Wednesday!

 If you have visited me very often you will know that I love color, so you may be wondering why I would chose to host a "white" day.  Well, recently I've been admiring many of your all white interiors,appreciating the clean, calm look of it and thinking how it might be fun to change my whole color sheme to white.  However, I know that it wouldn't be long before I'd be sneaking color back into my home!  So rather than redo my whole house white I thought I would get it out of my system by hosting White Wednesday, where we can all enjoy  the color white.

This is going to be a challenge for me but I'm up to it.  Are any of you color lovers out there going to take up the challenge with me? 

Encouraged by all your advice I went ahead and painted my studio table and chairs white and I'm very happy with how it turned out.  See how well it highlights the pattern  in the back.

Here is my white chair against the white cabinets.  White furniture, white walls. 

A white wicker vase filled with fake flowers looks good against the white chair.

My white ceramic rooster looks good against the white chair too!

They also look good on my white wicker desk in my studio.

If I had a house like this I definitely could be persuaded to go all white.  Isn't this room fabulous? 

Country Living
This room is gorgeous too, especially with all the light coming in the windows.  The word DREAM on the wall says it all!

Many homes in Norway and Sweden are decorated in all white.  I think it's because it brightens their rooms during the long dark winter days.
One blog I love to visit that is filled with scrumptious white is Anette's Hus . Anette lives in Norway and you'll love seeing all the lovely white she has in her home.  I told her you might stop by!

  1. Just beautiful Rhondi. I Love the white chair with the flowers sitting on it. Very serene and peaceful. I am not sure I could do an all white house either. I almost freaked when Todd bought us a white leather sofa!!! Amazingly enough it has stayed white! ALso many thanks for the lovely little package which arrive at mine a couple of days ago. I have wanted to e-mail you personally to say thanks, but have a rather lot on at work now, so hope this will do. You are so sweet to send me the pillow panels! I can't wait to do something with them. Thanks ever so much! ((((hugs))))

  2. Thanks so much for hosting this, I'm a huge fan of anything white and I love how your beautiful chairs turned out!

  3. rhondi, your white ceramic rooster....oh yeah! in fact, everything you showed in your home is beautiful! those white rooms make me swoon...

  4. I am so glad I found your blog. I can't believe I haven't seen you before, so I hurried and signed up to follow you. Now, I'll be able to see what you are up to.

    Today's post is wonderful. I love whites and creams and your chair and accessories are lovely. However, looking around your blog at all your beautiful colors, I wouldn't change a thing!


  5. Love the white. Looks so clean and bright. I am actually thinking of painting my table and chairs a white. You inspired me!

  6. Your chair looks great painted white. I love how the details show up so nicely and the addition of the flowers and white rooster are perfect. I couldn't resist your challenge today and have signed up to join in the fun. Thanks for being the hostess.

  7. HI Rhondi
    Wow you did a great job...the chairs look fabulous. Love the white!

  8. Morning, Rhondi! Oh, it's so beautiful! You did good and you know I love love love that white Rooster!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. Hi Rhondi - I know you're going to be happy for a long time with that white table and chairs. I love the white too, but I treat it as black - every room needs a shot of it!

  10. I swoon over white rooms in magazines, decorating books and Swedish Norweigan blogs. I would love that look to, but just like you, I am sure I would start adding the reds, yellows, blues and greens back in.

    Your white pictures are beautiful!


  11. White furniture is especially pretty!(I will share some next week, myself, lol!) I am joining for the first time today and want you to know how much I enjoy your blog!

  12. You can do it Rhondi. You can imagine all white, without bright color. I see it here!
    I too visit Swedish blogs with all the bright white interiors and I love the look. Thanks for this fun Wednesday event.

  13. I love the look of white but I agree with you. I need alittle color. Love your chair and the white rooster. Never saw one before. I would have bought that one too.


  14. Love that white wicker basket -- the flowers look real. I don't have a lot of white either, although I've tried to do WW in the past. I do always post a little something. Got mostly color going on around here. :) Have a great day! Tammy

  15. Hi Rhondi,
    I love colour too but I also love white! Your white chair and basket of flowers are so very lovely! I also like your cute rooster. Thanks for sharing and have a fabulous day.


  16. The white on the table and chairs is just perfect Rhondi! I love all the wonderful textures you put together, a plain white color scheme just seems to make the details even more of a focal point:>)

  17. Rhondi, your photos are gorgeous. I love white. And, I could definitely be happy in an all white home.

  18. O, Rhondi...I didn't know about this meme but I am writing it down so I won't forget NEXT Wednesday.

    I LOVE white walls and white woodwork...always have. Nearly all my walls are creamy white and I adore them.

    Your post is beautiful...I WANT THAT WHITE ROOSTER...he's beautiful

  19. I love your beautiful white chair, especially with the white field flowers on it. I linked my laundry room, which is white and some red. I hope it is white enough for you, but it really does look white and fresh when you go in it.

  20. Hi Rhondi!

    I always love looking at the Swedish blogs with all their white. They always looks so bright yet welcoming.

    Love your basket on the chair photo! I have those two inspiration photos in my file too!


  21. Rhondi, this looks wonderful! I love seeing what you did with your chairs. I'm a color nut, too, but I love white.

    While I didn't join you today, I plan on joining you tomorrow for Thankful Thursday. I have a lot to be thankful for, and you are on that list!


    Sheila :-)

  22. Hi Rhondi,
    Beautiful post of whites.

    Did Kathleen of Faded Charm pass White Wednesday off to you?
    Great that it is still going.

  23. So very beautiful. I came here by way of Kat at Low Tide High Style. Lovely painted chairs and your photography of them is perfection! -Lili

  24. Rhondi, the white is beautiful, as are the inspiration pictures you posted. But I ooh and ahh over all the photos you post of your beautiful home and wouldn't change it at all if I were in your place. I love your color choices and your style...just lovely. :)

  25. I think your table and chairs turned out *lovely* and you're right, you can really notice the pattern in the chair.

    And may I also say I *love* that you've changed your blog to white.--It makes your GORGEOUS header stand out even more. (o:

  26. Absolutely wonderful photos - thanks for hosting this.

  27. The chair is so perfect white. It has such a serene look. Great photos. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Rhondi,
    I have white chairs almost like yours, mine came as white, I love them. I think your new white table and chairs with the blue in your kitchen is great. So cheery. I especially love the white wicker vase/flowers on the white chair. Beautiful textures.


Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always read every one. I am glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope you'll come again!
