White tulips for White Wednesday!

My wonderful DH surprised me with these lovely tulips. White tulips are one of my favvie favs!

Aren't they gorgeous? I think I love them most because they just simply match my world, which is neutral everywhere. I love color but cannot live with it, if that makes any sense. I have a few rooms with green and some greige and light purple, but it is done sparingly and not where I much live (laundry, guest baths, guest rooms.) I need like the calm of the whites and the cousins of whites in my world.







The throw pillows my daughter made me.  The coffee trunk table was my father's mother's. Burlap runner from Etsy.  The custom-made pinstriped sofa is a million years old but I still love it, it still has life left in it, Romeo the kitty loves it - so I haven't had the heart to replace it.  The fun vintage ironstone pitcher is an estate sale find.







This wool carpet is my very favorite one in the whole house.

The little metal end table in the forefront right has a glass and metal tray that lifts off, perfect for serving drinks. 

The Umbrella Tree in the background I bought ten years ago and it has grown like crazy.  It was only around 3 feet tall when first brought home - now it is really tall!








You can kinda see a glimpse of one of the architectural columns that "hold up" the loft area in the mantle mirror's reflection. I wish now I would have turned the light on upstairs to show it a little better, but as Winnie the Pooh Bear would say "Ah, bother!" 








I just love these lovely white tulips that just brighten up this room!  Thank you, love!
