Gray and White Living Rooms

I struggled to get the strength to blog this week, I've been working on a project and have been met with some huge hurdles - ones that I'm having a hard time jumping. It's driving me crazy, and I've been losing my desire to find inspirational images. That was until Joni, my bloggy friend, and author of Cote de Texas blogged about Sally Wheat's new changes to her house in Houston. All of a sudden, the light turned on and this gray and white post came to be:

You have no idea how much this is inspiring change at CDLV. I've been getting a little bored with my decor. I know - it's silly. I just changed it. But I crave change, I desire change, and I think that change can be a really good thing. Of course, change would be easier if I just had more money. Can I get an amen?

Alright - so in keeping with the spirit of themes, gray and white living rooms that might get you thinking about a little change up of your own!

All the rooms are beautiful, but none of them are as beautiful (IMHO) as Sally's as photographed by Joni:

Are you going ga-ga over that chair? Ah - love, love, love this room! I'm leaving you here - and depending on what I encounter tomorrow - you might not see me for a bit ... lots of work going on around here. P.S., thanks to everyone who bought their CDLV scented 324 Luxe Candles! I can't wait to hear what you think! 


  1. If you change your decor to this, can I have your old stuff? I love how your house is decorated.

  2. Sally's newest living room is the BEST I have seen in a very long time!

  3. Artie when I read Joni's post and saw she mention you and your trumeau mirror on the Sally Wheat post I was so proud!! Adore the first living room,I mean adore!

    I am featuring Designer and Paper Artist Anita Rivera from Castle Crowns and Cottages on my site! She is amazing!

    Thanks so much!


  5. I read Joni's post this morning and was happy to see she mentioned your trumeau mirror. The first image of Sally's new redo is lovely. That Tara Shaw chair is so elegant, and the gray sofa works so well with all the white elements in the room. The next to last image is fabulous as well; the wall color (grasscloth?) nickel ginger jar and other accessories are spot on.

  6. I'll say "Amen!" My favorite image is the living room with the peachypink draperies. But really, gray and white is too cold for me, unless I was at the beach. In a dream beach house. Then I'd be talking your language!

  7. I love the gray and white theme. Its so minimalistic and sleek. I really like the one with the pops of soft pink! Great post!

  8. Hey I bought a shell pink angora vest this winter thinking if I didn't like to wear it I'd turn it into a stool. See, you inspired me too!
