All white...and dirt.

I don't know if my house will ever be all white...
for several reasons...
2 children
1 husband
1 cat
1 dog
But it sure is pretty to look at!

All photos from BH&G

I am one of those moms that lets my kiddos eat breakfast on the couch on lazy mornings.
I let my dog on the couch (not sure how I would stop her even if I tried...and I have tried).
We have pizza picnics on the floor, snacks on couches during movies and lots of
little feet all over...not always clean feet. pretty as it is...I will stick with brown couches.

So worth it!

So for now girls who decorate with all white...please keep it up so I can oooh and ahhhh!

As for me I will keep mopping, spraying down, picking up, loving it...most days...and dreaming of all white!

Love and dirt, Tracey


  1. You are so right! I love to look at it, but it would drive me crazy if I had it! We almost bought a white couch the last go round and changed our mind at the last minute. Best decision ever. Black coated dog who sheds like crazy. I'm with you on this one!

  2. Good Morning Tracey! I soooo love white too ~ especially the worn chippy white. I have white furniture and accessories but still have the beige couches - my boys are rough, tough and dirty. Once they're gone though, I will get my white slipcovered dream couches! :)
    I love to look through my books of white rooms - they all seem so peaceful and calm.
    Thanks for sharing some that I haven't seen before!
    Darling children. :)
    Sarah .... Have a wonderful day!

  3. From what you've shown us - your home is gorgeous - who cares what color the couch is as long as your children are on it with you :)

  4. Tracey,
    we do all those things and more on our white sofa! right now my dog is shedding like crazy! it can be all the inspiring photos of white rooms. they do make a girl go oooh and ahhh!

  5. 1 husband
    2 kids
    1 dog
    1 cat
    3 LOWRY kids who add to the dirt.

  6. I hear ya...and although it's only hubby and me for now (we have a baby due in Nov.) and we have no dog...we seem to gather enough messes ourselves! I'm all about keeping the work-load easy and dreaming of what could be....but probably is never going to be practical enough for us.



  7. Dream on babe................hahahahhahahahh!!

    Hugs from Ria

  8. I am telling you white is easy! You can just bleach it all! I love it, have one son but no animals yet, so I can't say for sure. But, if you have any questions, just email me..lolol..Have a great day! ~lulu

  9. I have 6 children, a cat and her 5 kittens, a puppy and a hubby... I have white and beige everywhere, even down to towels.... I don't dream about it anymore, its a winter wonderland. I dream of colour and in my next design, lovely violets are making an intro.
    I am so over white. Hubby and I sit there and say to each other,,,, this is arctic.
    We miss the ease and comfort of family life, where things flow and there is no "hey watch out for the couch"
    I recently read this article and I think it made a lot of sense... so Mothers and women... keep up what is important and let your dreams be in what you currently have. Less is more!
