Let There Be White

I wanted to share with you my love for white.  I'm a bit obsessed with it really. White makes everything seem spacious, calm and peaceful. White is...fluffy clouds on a summer day, a soft blanket on a winter morning.  It's sweet meringues and quite literally...the icing on the cake!  It can sometimes be overlooked and considered plain and boring.  So I am on a mission to champion the cause for white and this is the first of what will probably be many posts on the subject.  Also, in view of the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge opted for white for her wedding flowers, it is fair to say white will prove to be popular for weddings in 2012.

But before we embark on all things white for weddings, I just wanted to share with you one of my favourite blogs, dedicated to all things white.   The White Approach is by the very lovely and very stylish Karen Jones.

Her blog is the story of her home and how she has transformed it with a wave of her 'white' magic wand.   She has a gift for spotting the perfect vintage and shabby chic pieces and lovingly restores and paints her brilliant furniture finds.  You can even buy some of her stunning finds and furniture.  So take a peek at her blog and put some white in your life......

She has also recently added another string to her impressive bow in the form of her VINTAGE CHINA RENTAL SERVICE.

The gorgeous vintage china she has carefully collected can now be rented for weddings, hen events, birthday parties and baby showers.  Karen will set up for you or also offers a collection service only. Prices are for a 3 day hire and she doesn't even ask that you wash up before returning everything to her ! .....  I did say she has a magic wand.   For full details of prices and terms go to  The White approach  or email her at  It will transform your event.

So is a white wedding for you?  White translates into all styles whether you go for modern and minimal.....
