When Porch.com asked me to share one of the rooms in my home as part of the #loveyourhomeseries I was super excited to take part. Today, I’m honored to share my home office with you.

White doors work exceptionally well with pale exterior homes in shades or white or cream where you want another feature to stand out instead of the door, such as the beautiful landscape or the architectural detailing of the home.

I’ve always been a bit fan of classic white bone china, so my first set was by Alex Liddy which has beautiful wide rimmed bowls that I adored.
