Absolutely in love with Janet Parrella-van den Berg and her gorgeous love for all things white. Janet’s beautiful Instagram account @white_and_faded as well as her sweet online boutique, White & Faded has me inspired by her hunt for unique items and in turn, giving them the new life they deserve. “Searching for unique items after lost beauty with the potential for restoration and glory” is what Janet lives for. Rescuing unloved pieces and making them beautiful again is her passion. Furthering this love Janet has designed a fabric and wallpaper line that stems from her appreciation for old quilts and antique chairs. She uses both to beautify her new found items and spaces, giving energy and life to sweet things from the past.
It’s this devotion that I find so compelling. I too am always looking for meaningful things with history. Whether my ‘unique treasure’ needs a coat of paint or not… it’s weathered age speaks volumes when placed in my home. Like Janet, I find that items from the white & faded past capture my attention the most. As Janet emphasizes… they exude a certain, ‘relaxed elegance’.
So happy that Janet was available to answer a few questions today… I’m sharing some of her charming Christmas images as well. You will find that noone does Christmas quite like Janet. White through and through this seasonal home is dressed for Christmas with perfect texture and detail.
1. What inspires you?
2. Have you always been a lover of all that is white and faded?
3. Other than white what is your favorite color?
4. Do you decorate your home for Christmas with a theme in mind?
5. Any advice for others wanting to decorate with white?
Thanks so much Janet!!
Below Janet’s images I’ve also included links to white pieces that I find add interest and texture to a space. White can be just as interesting as a room filled with color… it just needs layers of texture and a unique piece or two in order to shine the way it should.
