I recently received this email from Lori in Texas who bought my White eBook during the design phase of her dream home, and here is the beautiful and classic result!
I purchased your e-book, White Is Complicated: A Decorator’s Guide to Choosing the Right White, while we were in the design phase of our dream home. See, we recently retired from the military after serving 30 years. A dream home was something that just wasn’t possible until now. So I knew we had to get it right.Your e-book was a such a blessing!!! Well, the house is complete and because of you, I think we got it right!! Thank you for all of your advice and tips. We are forever grateful!!P.S. I used white subway tile in all of the bathrooms!!
Lori decorated the house herself and she did a beautiful job! Love the french doors in the living room with the transom windows and the pretty, medium brown hardwood floors!

She bought the chandeliers from eBay in France!
Lori wanted concrete tiles in here but they were not in her budget so she used Annie Sloan chalk paint instead and painted the black and white squares with two coats of varnish on top. She says they are holding up even with the high heels she often wears!
Master Bathroom: Carrara Marble Countertops & BM Chantilly Lace cabinets.
Lori’s last note to me was “Thanks so much, your blog had a lot to do with what my house is today. . . down to the medium brown floors”.
If you are choosing white for your walls, trim, cabinets or ceilings, go here to download my White is Complicated eBook!
I get these kinds of emails a lot and it’s lovely to receive photos to post! Thanks so much Lori, I really appreciate them!

My sister Elizabeth and I have been in Montreal for the last 4 days and we’ve had a great time! Getting on a flight shortly and we’ll be home tonight! We bought white sneakers because she’s been on a mission to find them ever since she saw a picture of Victoria Beckham wearing them.
All the girls in Montreal were wearing Adidas white leather sneakers but they were sold out everywhere, I found them online here.
I’m still amazed that it’s trendy for women to wear comfortable shoes! I say hooray ; )
