I had planned to show you bedroom updates but please see above note about alcohol and naps. I woke up too late from my nap today to get pictures... sowwwwy.
But in somewhat related news regarding minimal white rooms, I've been obsessed with, well, minimal white rooms. I think it's a continuation of my summer dreams where I want everything - my wardrobe, my house, my teeth - to be sparkling white like a summer fairy with exquisite dental hygiene.
Like Elle Fanning as Aurora but not so fucking annoying. Elle Fanning in the streets, Maleficent in the sheets. White sheets. I guess technically it's Elle Fanning there too? Shit.

OR WILL IT?!?!??!!?!
This House in the Hills blog/actual home keeps popping up in my Pinterest/wet dreams and is worth checking out. But they seem to have all the correct elements for my California white, wet dreams. [MS sidebar: gross.] It's all about texture: wood, leather, rattan, mangy textiles, concrete, marble, metallic. Oh and a round mirror. I gotta get me one of those but they be expensive.
A vintage something is also necessary as well as a very dramatic statement plant. Hammocks are bonuses.
I'd also like to throw in something Baroque or ornate in there just to confuse the "Organic Modern" purists. It's like 10% Scarface in your room. Or what I'm imagining Scarface to be... honestly, I've never seen it and am kinda okay with it. But I know enough to know there was white and lots of money so it makes sense in my head.
Statement art is personal preference. Sometimes too much of a focal point is hard for me, like, you gotta LOVE that piece of art so much you want to look at it all day every day for the rest of your barren existence. Kinda like a tv?

However, I'm kinda feeling this all white piece here:

Confession: I have a magnetic board I got from the Ballard outlet that's just a distressed black interior in a gold frame. I use it as art I give no fucks.
But next on the list is white art for sure.
I also love how all of these interiors have furniture that literally looks like it was made during a VBS. Albeit a VERY swank and talented VBS but you have to be able to see the grommets and twine. Nailheads sticking out and shit. Leather still warm from the animal. We're going for authenticity.
But mostly white. Authentic white. Is there even such a thing as authentic white? Considering how much time I'm spending lately trying to find the specific combination of borax, dishwashing detergent and Oxi-clean to get the pit stains out of my clothes I'm thinking no.

Hahaha just kidding my plants (that I keep alive) are my friends already. Pretty soon they're gonna feel like they're living inside of a white padded cell when I'm through making the decor changes around the Ranch. But it's just because I love them so much and want to protect them.
This stream-of-consciousness is getting weird. I must be thinking about holding plants hostage because I did so much yardwork/plant murder today that my fingers hurt and maybe I feel guilty even though my yard looks pretty. But mostly it's weird cuz of the drunkness.
Okay so be prepared for twelveteen more posts about white rooms this summer until I've had my fill and move on to a style that I REALLY CARE ABOUT THIS TIME OMIGAWD THIS IS THE ONE I MEAN IT THIS TIME.
