White Lounges

I love a white lounge
*
I love how a basic white lounge creates a great platform from which to decorate
*
I love how you can add any accent colour you like to white and it looks good

I love how you can switch your soft furnishings and accessories to suit the season

* I love black and white
*
I love a room filled with natural tones
*
I love how a great rug can make a room come together
*
I love how a white lounge looks in a room painted with bold colours
* *
What do you think?
* *
I hope you have all had a great week and that your weekend is fabulous!
* *
We will be working on the never ending renovations amongst all the usual weekend stuff!

  1. I have made so many white linen slipcovers (for myself, rellies and friends) I can't believe everyone doesn't have them already! Super easy to look after through red wine, animals and chocolate biscuits. Never without them...

  2. I love that you call them "lounges"! I've never heard them called that and it sounds so much better than "couches". I love them in white, too.

  3. I've never had a white lounge but if I ever get my current ones new slipcovers, I'm thinking that will be what I do. Great rooms you've found us Nellie. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I like white couches/lounges but I do get a little tired of the canine paw prints that always find their way there. At least they can be thrown in the washing machine.
    Have a lovely weekend Nellie!

  5. The fourth pic is my fave. I would like to have white sofas though they would be dirty in two seconds (which would drive me mad) and I'm afraid I don't love doing laundry enough to be washing slipcovers every other day!
    Leather in white doesn't have the same appeal for me so I think I'll stick with dirt colour sofas for now :-)

  6. A white couch is a perfect starter to your decor. I love that you can throw any colour at it and it will always look good. Enjoy your weekend Nellie. ;-)

  7. Love the look Nellie and the pics are all lovely. But slip covers or not white just wont cut it in this house with 2 vegemite sticky fingered boys. But there's always a chance when I'm 60 and they've moved out of home!
    Have a great weekend!

  11. I love white too, but with 2 children and a dog .... my white must be leather. One day I hope to be able to have fabric again. Love the 'black and white' image. Have a great weekend. Michelle

  15. Fab post Nellie, I'm a big fan of the old white sofa myself... I would love to get one when we return from travelling, as the girls are a bit older now and they are pretty good about 'respecting our belongings'. Can you tell I have used that phrase a few times before?? hehe
    The pics with the black and white scheme are my favourite.. timeless!
    Have a great weekend :)
