Design: Round-up of White

The only goal that I have for today’s post is to share a collection of images that have recently caught my eye. There’s no method. Just easy, breezy, inspirational images of design in white. Happy Wednesday!

Marketplace: Industrial Chic at Etsy

How do you all feel about “industrial chic” style?¬†I could pretty much move into any of these rooms even though I generally prefer things to be a little more delicate.

Warm woods and soft textures do effectively tone down hard-core industrial spaces. While I’ve never really embraced this style, I do sometimes find myself drawn to industrial-type lamps and accessories.¬†If you type “industrial chic” into the search bar on¬†Etsy¬†or Pinterest, you’ll get¬†pages upon pages of industrial items and ideas. Here are some from Etsy that I found interesting:

Winner: Panasonic Giveaway

Thanks to those who entered and commented on last month’s Panasonic feature & giveaway. I am happy to announce that Boba is the lucky winner of the stainless steel microwave. Have a look at her old-world + modern appliances kitchen design. I love that the induction cooktop and modern wall oven look perfectly at home among the oriental rug, rustic wood table, and beautiful blue fabrics. I also love the inclusion of a classic white KitchenAid stand mixer and white Danby (I think) pots. Let us know how you love your new microwave, Boba!

Many thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring this giveaway and to Candace B. for her coordination.

Giveaway: #PanasonicStyle

Hi all. Was the weekend a good one? Did you cook up a storm? How do you feel about getting creative this Monday morning? Good. I’m glad. Have I got a contest for you!

PanasonicStyle

I wrote about Panasonic’s induction products last week and this week I’m challenging you (it’s an easy challenge, I swear) to create your own Panasonic kitchen style inspiration board using the¬†Panasonic induction cooktop and convection oven.

Here’s my inspiration board to serve an example:

White-Cabana-Panasonic-Style

White Cabana’s #PanasonicStyle

My inspiration board includes items that are smooth, sleek, and highly functional – like the Panasonic appliances, the Kaiser Idell light, and the Bialetti coffee maker. I’m also inspired by natural sunshine, so this board includes gorgeous large windows. The fresh flowers promise the arrival of springtime and growth. The fresh squid ink pasta and black and white art show the beauty that comes from making things by hand.

But enough about my inspiration…it’s your turn!

What would you include in your #PanasonicStyle kitchen inspiration board? Go ahead, create one. When you’re done with your board, email it to me along with your contact info and I’ll add it to the #PanasonicStyle Pinterest board. That’s all you have to do to enter the contest!

So, you probably want to know what’s up for grabs, right? This is your chance to win…

NN-GD693S(CPH)_Front_sp1219_(Final)

A Panasonic Mid-Size Genius Inverter Microwave! The winner will receive the microwave as well as the trim kit (so that you can mount the microwave above the stove/over the counter). This prize is a biggie – valued at $470! Um, yeah. I told you it was going to be worth your pinning efforts!¬†Who doesn’t want a new microwave, right?

To recap:

1. Create an inspiration board (i.e., collage) featuring the Panasonic induction cooktop or convection oven.

2. Email me your board – whitecabana [at] gmail [dot] com

3. The contest deadline is¬†Friday February 21st, 2014¬†and it’s open to Canadian residents (over the age of 18, excluding Quebec).

Your popcorn kernels will thank you for entering and so will I!

Many thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring this giveaway and related posts.

Event: Octaspring + Pinterest Contest

You may remember that last week I announced Octaspring’s current contest. Use Pinterest to create an #OctaspringDream bedroom board and post the link on Facebook…that’s all it takes to enter! The prize is a great one…a set of Octaspring pillows plus a $250 gift card to the Home Depot. Can I mention again that I am one of the judges of the contest? Am I excited? Of course I am. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what your must-haves are in your dream bedroom!

While I cannot enter the contest, I did want to create a dream board. It’s been a handy board, actually, considering the fact that I’m currently rearranging a lot in my home and the master bedroom still needs some attention. Here’s a sneak peek at my #OctaspringDream bedroom Pinterest board:

WhiteCabana_OctaspringDreamBedroom

Have a full look at it here.

As you’ll notice, some of my bedroom must-haves are: art, windows, sunlight, excellent linens, texture, cool lighting, beautiful closet, pretty pyjama sets, flowers, an assortment of pillows (I’m currently sleeping on the Octaspring Evolution – I’ll post a review soon!), and a bed that is made (I cannot leave the house with a messy bed. How about you?).

The #OctaspringDream bedroom contest ends November 18th Friday December 13th so get a-pinning!
