Oh White Home, I Love Thou!

1 August 2012 0


Quite often I am thinking of painting a wall or creating a feature wall with wallpaper. Not that I would consider any of these in my current shoebox sized apartment, but if I ever move into something slightly bigger it might become an option. My favorite is a charcoal or anthracite wall to make some artwork pop. But then, I stumble over inspiring pictures of bright white homes with glistening natural light and I am entirely smitten. Every detail comes to its own, colours seem even more vibrant, and the simplest vignette of a chair and a vase make for an artful setting. Oh white home, I love thou!

    I love an all white room but am not sure if I could handle living in it. Like how everything in those rooms pops against the white and makes everything look better. Maybe someday…

    ach Igor! I feel the same way. Sometimes my tastes and ideas conflict. I think the only solution is to have multiple houses so we can satisfy all our style crushes 😉

    I can never get sick of looking at white interiors. It really allows all the furniture and arts pop in the house. By the way, congrats on your spot on the London Blog Tour!!! How exciting! Can’t wait to see your reporting of the event! XO

    Haha,this was my blog somewhat yesterday!
    In my all white home I have one quite large wall dedicated to black,I love the drama it creates and how my artwork pops on it. But I have left it up to whoever wants to in the future( when they own this home) to paint that one wall what ever color they choose changing the entire feel of the room,and yet the rest stays white! So I am with you I love white spaces.

    I say white walls and wallpaper, just one wall to keep it fun 😉

    One can never go wrong with white. If you have white walls, you can always play around with your accessories and furniture or dedicate just one corner for being barmy.
