White Living Room

My mom is moving to NYC and has a dream of an all white apartment.  She has asked me to help her decorate it and I couldn't be more excited. I am starting with inspiration and would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you could chime in of link me to something fab. Mom isn't trendy think more the house from Something's Gotta Give. I pulled the following because:

1.  This room is cozy easy and chic - not modern but never outdated!

  1. the ideas you want to work on are perfect.
    i hope your mom will love the result.
    white is not difficult to work with..i guess.
    i would consider functionality first, i always do. the dark fondo is lovely ..i would avoid white floors and pick something dark. do i sound like an int.designer? no no no

  2. My mom told me her inspiration was the house in Somethings Gotta Give too! Its so classic. Can't wait to see the end result! I'm sure it'll be gorgeous.

  3. I love an all white space and a NY apartement filled with it sounds sooo divine. I loved every picture-you have a great inspiration folder and I'm sure your mom will end up with one beautiful space!!!

  4. I'm currently in the process of redecorating my living room in black and white, so much inspiration here. Enjoy decorating for your mom, I'm sure she will be the best client to work with!

  5. Awwww I would love to be able to have an all white living room. I dont think it would be the most practical though. Lovely images.

  6. Take a look at Dreamy Whites,

    Maria lives on a ranch with her husband and I think 4 or 5 children. Her entire house is white. She gives good tips to 'live white'.

  7. We, at Delightfull are delighted to announce our presence at Maison & Objet, in January 2011. It is our utmost pleasure to be showing once more at this wonderful event! We can't wait to 21th to come! See you all there!


  8. These images are absolutely beautiful. I really love the horse art. I went horse-riding a couple of weekends ago and it's reawoken something in me!!!
