    Absolutely gorgeous! The whites are lovely together, and I'm a big fan of coral and shells placed on vintage silver. Saw this over at Pink Postcard.

    Stopping by from the UBP11. I love this room. So jealous! I wish I could do more white, but with two crazy littles I think I would just be asking for trouble. 🙂 Hope you're having a great day. Glad I stopped by.

    How beautiful and serene! I love what you've done to your bedroom. It looks so luxurious, the best part is you spent less than $100 bucks. Now that's a God given talent!

    Happy Cottage Monday!

    looks perfect!!!! I love all White rooms, you did such a fabulous job 🙂

    Goodness grief what a stunner of a room. Somehow I find it appropriate that my landscape provides a subtle burst of color in an otherwise immaculate setting, because I would be a brute and a terror myself in a white room. I shudder to think what horrid dirt and stains I'd leave behind without trying to. Really lovely!

    Lovely…enchanting! And so peaceful… love all the white/muted colors… oh oh and Pablo Neruda is my fav poet of all poet… your quote made me smiled… thanks for participating in Show Off Your Cottage Monday and bringing me here!

    What a beautiful, serene room!!! I am a "color" person, but would love an all-white room somewhere in this house. Crazy? You did an amazing thing!
