white & cream projects

chair

I picked up the Marie Claire Idées magazine (June 08) recently just for these white and cream decorating ideas inside. I especially love the pebble chair piece, and am now on the hunt for a chair to try this out on. Athough I would probably never have a room that is so monochromatic, I love to look at ones with whites, creams and grays (the combination seems so relaxing), and the dresser (just below) really shows how well they work together. The natural woods in these are a nice finishing touch too.

That mosaic table with embedded place settings is quite amusing! And I love the idea of stacking lots of white vases of all shades and sizes together as one piece. Fab!

I love that magazine! I've looked for it in vancouver before without any luck in finding it. Would you have any suggestions as where to find it. Thanks!

I love the vase platter and the stone chair. I can't imagine having the room to work on any of these projects... but someday!

So soothing and lovely! I love Marie Claire Idees. It's always so well-styled and has such great projects in it.

I love love love this! Exactly the summer colour scheme for my house (which, btw, is very near the beach, so this entire look is very fitting I think!)

Oh I love these! I think that every summer I get re-obsessed with white. I think it looks so beautiful.

Oh, those white bottles look like the collection I put up on top of my television cabinet! I feel so classy and sophisticated now that I realize this isn't just one of my weird ideas. ☺

The mosaic table settings are such a whimsical idea I wonder what I could do to make one for myself? Maybe a patio table would work...
Thanks for posting these!
