White Done Right

{I know, this picture has been floating around forever but I still love it and could totally picture myself cuddling up in that little dreamy nook}

The trick to using all white (or lots of it) successfully in an interior to make it feel anything but sterile and cold, is to incorporate different textures, layers and subtle variation. Since there won’t be any visual interest with color or usually even pattern, it’s so important to utilize those tools. The spaces below are what I would call “white done right”.

{This attic bedroom doesn’t have a lot going on, but I think it works because of the textures with the wood on the floor and ceiling, the curtains, and the nubby natural rug}

{Have you ever seen such light and airy attics??}

{Note the layers, textures and subtle variation here: curtains w/ interest adding stripes, upholstered seat in a linen fabric, turned wood furniture, and the use of both white, and different tints of off-white}

{Here’s another cozy nook to curl up in! They’ve incorporated lots of natural textures with wood, woven materials, sticks and (a little harder to see) nubby pillows. The floor has a some extra interest with both white wood & brick}

{This is a glamorous white bedroom! I love the use of mirrors, frosted glass and the small details in the bedding and on the wall}

{This room used a lot of variation in white neutrals. All of the glass doors and even painted wood on the console table and mantle help to warm this space up}

{This bedding + the curtains + the painted white wood walls + the wood floors make this room such a cozy white composition}

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!! Have a wonderful weekend!
