One timeless trend seems to be decorating in white. I have my own little White House here and have favored white decor since I had my very first apt in my senior year of college! Furniture has always been painted white and/or upholstered white wherever I have lived.......and then depending on season accessories are changed out. It's so easy to move things from room to room and accessorize and edit this way. Mr Fufu is a true less is more guy......and he was in favor BIG TIME of this redo.
We decided to move the china cabinet in the dining room into a little corner of the large living room, corner bookcase into a spare bedroom and take everything off the walls. I had this BIG A_S mirror that I recently acquired and repainted it white over the original very dark grey and gilt finish. It's now the centerpiece of the room behind my favorite vintage beaded chandelier. A vintage French caned sofa table now holds just a few accent pieces that can be easily changed out. Our dining table is glass.....which I love because it allows the swimming pool to reflect and be seen in the late afternoon sun. Chairs.....not super crazy about them, but until I find the right ones I plan on doing some new slips soon.
Less is more sometimes
