White Wednesday in McKinney

On a previous post of Kathleen's White Wednesday, I had showed you a gorgeous kitchen that was featured on HGTV's-More Bang for your Buck show. Well, I had received an email from Lucinda, who so kindly shared more information about this home. She said it was previously featured by a Dallas Realtor when it came up for sale. Here are more photo's of the Tate's beautiful home. I would have moved right in, Gayle Tate has great style:

I loved the mirror and the way the light just brightens this room, so pretty.

Aren't thse vintage French inspired beds so pretty and the room's similicity makes it seem so cozy. I saw similiar beds at the Round Top/Warrenton antique show during last Fall, should have snatched them up. They were gone by the time I went back. How many times has that happened that you walked away from something you really liked and came back only to find them sold.

This vanity cabinet is so unique. I loved the black contrast against the white accents.

What a pretty bedroom with the blue quilt. Blue is still one of my fav colors.

The white just seems to pop against the wood color tones.

Now isn't this a relaxing room, and the coffee table is so unique.

I actually really like the chandeliar in this dining room along with the windsor chairs. The pop of red of the cabinet is a nice touch.

Ok, this is what drew me to watch the show was this super awesome kitchen. Click here to see another picture of the kitchen. Thanks Lucinda for the additional information about this beautiful home.


  1. what a gorgeous home!!! you would think that all white everything would look kind of sterile...but that home looks very warm, cozy and inviting to me!!!

  2. You're right...that is an awesome house! Love the little *pops* of black, too.

  3. Holy Moley!!! Can't decide which picture I lust the most!! Tootles, Janna

  4. I just love all the white ... I especially love the white kitchen .. but she must not have a husband who cooks ... those pretty lamps would not work for my hubby

  5. oops ..I went back to the pictures ... it was not the kitchen was the bathroom ... my hubby might be able to use that room without too much trouble .. he's actually great around the house's just the kitchen where he seems to 'fling' things around when he cooks

  6. oh..It's nice to dream but then you have to wake up and come back to reality :0(

  7. Gorgeous home, I think the bath with the intricate vanity is my favorite, but I also love that antler chandelier. So many great things about this house!

  24. Oh boy this was a treat to see, her home is lovely. Those twin beds are adorable and your right if you don't move fast enough to buy something, its more likely to be gone. I don't know how many times that has happen to me in the past.
