Tuesday Finds: Black And White Done Right

Black and white have become an obsession of mine, especially if there's stripes or pattern involved. 

Recently Adrienne, on her blog La Vie Quotidienne, has been making over her outdoor living spaces by sewing and painting up a storm.

First a makeover of her old covered backyard area. If you hop over to her blog you will be amazed at the "before" condition of this space.

Next her front porch got some love. Though the two spaces are far apart (one front, one backyard) she coordinated them in the same colors in a fresh new way. 

I can't sew my own pillows like she did, but I think next summer I'll be shopping for striped pillows and a new rug.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Thank you!

    This is such a nice surprise and wonderful compliment. It is always a treat to know that other people like and appreciate what you do.

  2. It really does look amazing, beautifully coordinated.

  3. I'm a massive fan of black and white and have a checkered floor in our kitchen.

    I love the striped cushions.

  4. I love black and white also and my back patio has black and white pillows and seat covers.

    She did a wonderful job on her areas.


  5. Oh- That is so pretty. I think black and white is just so fresh looking, too. I don't know that blog---will have to look her up. xo Diana

    ps. Got my new blog up if you want to pop by for my little giveaway.
