Whiteport, New England Style

I have always loved New England style, and have a huge amount of images in my files of this decorating style, so I thought I would show you how they all tie in with the beautiful Australian store, Whiteport. I was recently contacted by the delightful Jennifer McCabe asking me to let you all know of the wonderful discount Whiteport is offering at the moment. If you go to the homepage and leave your email details to subscribe, you will receive 20% off your next purchase!!! Well you will see how this ties in to the New England style....

This little hint of a dining room screams 'casual chic', and New England. Pale floors, loads of white and natural wood and washable cotton everywhere. Don't you just want to move in? Me to!

This is the porch of Jennifer's home. Not only is she super stylish, she is a bargain me. This setting she bought off Ebay for a small price, re covered in white and voila! Stylish outdoor setting.

Her bathroom is just gorgeous and has been in my head recently while I ponder our bathroom reno. White with black accents and white washed can you go wrong?

This cushion would look lovely on a plump white sofa over looking the ocean. It is available from Whiteport. I want some. My Sister will too!!
You know I want this all white ginger jar from Whiteport!
Imagine a group of these mixed in with blue and white ones...ahhh.

Not only is the store beautiful, Jennifer's blog is lovely too. She has a liking for a Designer I admire, Vincent Wolf.

Whiteport's range of lotions and potions look good enough to eat, especially sitting on these waffle white!

I can just imagine all of these in a New England style home, and with a fire place that is simply beautiful, you could stay all year round.

The only thing that is missing from the photo above is a vintage look wicker basket full of kindling, like these from Shabby Homestyles...

...and a bowl full of these gorgeous little white pebbles from Mondo Cherry. They remind me of the ones from Somethings Gotta Give...but cuter.

I don't think it would be a New England home without a flag and a lighthouse. I love the fact that the light house is white and not that over done red stripe kind.

..and would all these things make sense if there wasn't somewhere to kick off your sandy shoes and plonk down for an evening by candle light, the sound of waves and the ocean breeze sending you to sleep while someone else done the cooking...absolutely not!
For great ideas visit Jennifer and her team at Whiteport.

  1. Hi Ness~

    So beautiful...crisp and white! I love the WHITE bathroom with the black tub. Especially the horizontal wood!!! Who can go wrong with white waffle towels! Very I have a few sites to go visit...thank you NESS!!!

  2. Gorgeous ... although I do wonder if those fireplaces stacked with wood are some kind of termite risk?

  3. Great post - love how you have mixed the references to Whiteport with the new england style.
    Love those vintage-style baskets with the numbers stencilled on them.

  4. I love the photo of the baskets, I have just come back from shopping and have bought some that are very similar. I love that greyish colour and think that they look so much nicer than the plain ones.

    à bientôt

  5. Gorgeous! I WANT that patio. I wonder if future buyers would hate me if I painted my deck white. Hmmm....

  6. Lovely post Ness - I've bought online from Whiteport & was very impressed with their exceptional Customer Service. And that's coming from Miss Fussy herself!!
    Millie ^_^
    P.S. No termites in that gorgeous fireplace pic - they hate the light, & would be running around screeching their little heads off trying to find an escape route to a dark place pronto! So you could stand by & hit them over the head as they exit! Problem solvered!!
