White on White Summer House

Hello dears! After a seven hour delay at Rio's airport we finally arrived in Paris yesterday afternoon. So, yay! Here I am in Paris, in Spring with my daughter and hubby, I am so happy!

I have a while before we go out so there's time enough to show you this lovely summer house. A feast to us white lovers, but to those who are not too keen on white bear with me because they are truly wonderful.
Blooms in the perennial garden peek through a white picket fence along the side and back of the 100-year-old shingled house.
A graceful arch frames the view of the sitting room as seen from the entry. A pair of new, extra-comfy lounge chairs focus on the fireplace studded with shore stones.
At the far end of the living room, this atmospheric bay window is fitted with built-in seats and furnished with a table and chairs used primarily for game-playing.
White on white and very pale blues. I guess I'd have to have everything slip-covered before I let my family walk into this room!
Open to the dining room, the kitchen looks larger than it really is. A peninsula is used for both prep work and serving snacks

With its ocean views, the kitchen eating area provides the utmost in waterfront dining. An old ship lantern is now a chandelier.
The girls’ bathroom continues the yellow and white of the bedroom. Built-in ledges hold toiletries.

Sunny and cheerful, this is the girls’ bedroom. Spindle beds were found at a flea market; all other furnishings came with the house.

Traditional Home.

I'd like to thank all of you who left your kind comments yesterday. I will try to get back to you as soon as possible!
