Romantic White

"Romance comes in many guises,

from fairytale to boudoir,

and can therefore be adapted to suit a variety of tastes.

It is not a look anchored in practicality,

but a means of escape to whisk you away from the humdrum of everyday life.

Put simply, romance is an antidote to the frenetic world in which we live.

While there are no hard and fast rules to interpreting a romantic white theme,

the key to keeping it contemporary and livable is to make it relaxed and pretty. . . .

. . . Nostalgia is the essence of romance. . ."

Atlanta Bartlett, from At Home With White
