I am drawn to white. It is so crisp and clean…and it will never go out of style. Best of all white looks great with everything you pair it with.

To me, bright white trim highlights any wall color, white bedding can dress any bed, and white linen curtains frame any view.

White allows your pops of color to pop! Benjamin Moore has over 200 shades of white. Surely you can find one that fits your needs!

www.architectureartdesigns.com  said: “White is known as the color of purity and natural beauty. Using white when designing or decorating you can combine it with almost any other color.”

Here are some of my favorite white kitchens from House Beautiful, BHG, and Houzz.

White bathrooms are always inviting, Celia Bedilia (I love this kids bathroom), Houzz bathroom (adore the window), and finally another bathroom with a Celia Bedilia vanity.

Bedrooms dressed in white look so crisp and clean. I love this Coastal Living bunk room, and these two Coastal Celia Bedilia bedrooms are among my favorites of all time.

Living made easy in white! Love thses three living rooms:House Beautiful, Celia Bedilia & Coastal Living.

 

Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic tell Country Living: “WHITE IS EASY TO CARE FOR. There’s nothing worse than seeing someone go with an all-white room, then fear it. Let the white be lived in! I’ve raised two children in my homes, so all of my Shabby Chic slip covers are preshrunk and machine washable. Of course, it helps to like the crumpled, imperfect look. I don’t iron. If you’re a human being and have a life, that gets old very quickly.”

“With white, everything stays simplistic and strong.” says designer Suzanne Kasler.

FreshHome.com states: “White is the most commonly used color in interior design, especially in areas where bathing, cleaning and food preparation are prevalent. This is due to the fact that you can see anything that appears on white and wipe it up, keeping the surfaces clean and germ free. White combines well with black to form a stunning high contrast look. With the popularity of minimalist homes, decorating is lending towards using neutrals again. Keeping the interiors crisp white and clean, with often the use of subtle textures in kitchen bench tops, carpet or timber floors.”

Celia Bedilia says “White is both versatile and timeless”.

I am going to paint my office white; I will photograph it and await your feedback!

  1. I love white as a backdrop for seasonal, moveable color. I always wish I had a little more white in my home. I made an attempt at pickling oak floors this summer and had to give up because it wasn’t giving me the aged Scandinavian look I was going for (too pink, too yellow…). Next time the floors need a refinish I’ll try again. I am crazy for pickled wood floors. Great post!
