I recently did a post on white washing to bliss and was very pleased to see a feature on a California White-Washed Dream in House Beautiful's September issue. The entire home designed by Carolyn Espley-Miller, who also has a great blog http://slimpaley.com/ evokes a calm and tranquil mood inspired by the sea, which is what Shorely Chic is all about!
My favorite part of the interview with Carolyn was this:
Cregan: "Are you 'someplace else' when you come to this house?"
Miller: "I'm absolutely transported — I've stepped out of the fast-paced, modern world into this sea of tranquillity. I sound like I'm tooting my own horn, but everyone who walks in here says a feeling of calm washes over them".
My point exactly!!
I want my future home to look JUST like this! A mix of white, rustic, and of course, coastal inspiration :)
