There is something about the billowing fabrics and their unexpectedly gorgeous colour combinations of these gowns which made me want to see them together. Whether new or old, beautiful designs never lose their appeal.
I've been daydreaming about the Dream House again. I'm picturing blue design elements being used throughout the house.I'm envisioning the front door being painted a beautiful blue (the same colour as the one shown above), and the study being painted a gorgeous blue hue (much like Jeanette Whitson's library painted Farrow Ball’s Hague Blue, top image, shown above)--actually, they seem to be nearly the same shade. I have always loved blues, from light to dark, cool to warm, I love them all.
Maybe the reason I'm in the mood for the colour blue today is because, two days ago, Glen and I found out that we are having a baby boy. I'm 20 weeks along, which means that I'm halfway through my pregnancy. It's so exciting to imagine our life with this new little person. As much as I'm a girly girl, and I adore all things pink and pretty and feminine, I will certainly love this boy of ours.
While shabby chic is not a style which I gravitate towards very often, I do always love a bit of romance. Honestly, I've never been quite sure what shabby chic is--I just think I know it when I see it. Pretty things always make me smile. I guess I don't really feel the need to know or understand the myriad style labels out there. I just know what I like. And these lovely images fit the bill.
