Decorating with White

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you! It’s been a rough few days with an entire family down with the flu, ugh! Luckily I’ve escaped contagion. #fingerscrossed

I thought I’d ease back into blogging with some winter white inspiration today, continuing the color series started last year. When I refer to color I do consider gray, black, and white as part of the decorating mix, they play a powerful role.

White spaces have been popular for years and instead of being trendy are proving to have staying power as we’re influenced more and more by contemporary looks and Scandinavian design. I’m a huge fan of spaces decorated with a white backdrop or furnishings, the palette is uplifting and soothing at the same time. Here’s a peek at a few favorite looks and why they’re so successful.

White is grounded when partnered with wood, and we’ve all fallen in love with rustic surfaces in the past few years, from floors to cabinets to countertops. Go ahead and mix wood tones, no matching required. Take a cue from these spaces that pull it off well.

My Delight with White (Ceramics)

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

I was at Marshalls the other week and found myself yet again drawn to the aisle with the shapely white ceramics on sale.  I ended up buying a pitcher, a large sculptural bowl, and vase, all for $20 (woot!) and all because I didn’t have that particular white piece in that particular shape.  I have deemed my obsession with white ceramic objects  a sickness and I feel no shame in the affliction.

They’re just so simple, so stylish, and so versatile.  I love how Nicole has her collection above her media center in her family room.

All White: Timeless or Trendy?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

 

I’ll be the first to stand up and plead guilty to a love of decorating with white.

I’ll spray paint just about anything white that’s standing still.

I’ve noticed that for the last several years, all white rooms are popping up more and more in design.
