Four Things I’m Loving Now…Da White Party

by Tania Ginoza on May 21, 2012 · 4 comments

Summer is here and I’m craving simple white everything with clean modern lines…

I was renting a fairly small two bedroom extension in Kaimuki in Honolulu before I moved to Maui.  Once I fit my sectional and entertainment table in the living room, there was only a little corner of space remaining.  I really wanted a desk to work on my laptop and the West Elm mini Parsons fit perfectly.  The finish is lacquer like and this desk feels solid, great quality for the price.  The mini Parson is perfect as a writing/laptop desk, an entryway perch or a dressing table.  West Elm also carries a full size version if you’ve got a bit more room for a full sized desk.  West Elm will ship this item to Hawaii.

I have a very small dining collection and the few pieces I do have are starting to show hairline cracks. When it comes time to buy some replacement pieces, I’m considering going the white route.  CB2 has a wonderful collection of white plates and bowls in modern shapes like this square starter set which comes with contrasting orange placemats.

Leather cuffs are one of my go to accessories.  I also love wrap bracelets.  So, I was thrilled to find this double wrap leather cuff at Linea Pelle.  Great to dress up a T and denim or as a tough contrast against a girly summer dress.

Slouchy Ts in a light fabric are one of my basics.  Great alone, with a linen Love Quotes scarf or under a blazer.  Nation Ltd’s Ts are supersoft and classic with a twist.  Their cut and shape always modern and special; their Ts are not your typical t-shirt.

All so pretty! I like the plates, somehow I think they would work well with all things fish/sushi related.

We have a set of William Sonoma Everyday Dinnerware that we bought almost exactly nine years ago and have only broken one bowl. The entire set cost $69 at the time, and is classic without being stuffy. It’s white and clean. I love to eat off of them and also to shoot photos of food on them. Nice stuff!

I’ll check out the William Sonoma! There is one in Honolulu or I have ordered from them online too.

Agreed on the fish/sushi with the square plates, with a green herb mix lining the plate :-)

When the hubby and I were selecting furniture for our office, I was also in love with white and anything from CB2! We ended purchasing IKEA knock offs — plastic white desk chair, small white metal cabinet, white book shelves. Love those square plates with orange place mats!!! The leather cuff is so cool and those tshirts are comfy yet sexy.

We don’t have CB2 or Ikea here :-( CB2 does ship but Ikea won’t. I love a white office too!
