home style: easy breezy whites

May 23, 2013

With just the right touch, a white space can be breezy, beautiful, classic and… not-at-all hospital sterile feeling. Whether it’s adding punches of color, a black on white scheme, touches of soft grey or using expansive windows to let the natural beauty around you come in, white is equally as cozy and warm as a place filled with dark woods and other richer tones.

Worried that white is not for you? As someone with lots of white in my home, including a cream leather couch I promise it’s easy to clean, and enables you to create any backdrop.  You don’t have to go as stark white as some of the image below, but use them as inspiration, pin and refer to them when creating your own open and inviting home. Remember, beige can be boring, white makes an impact.

    white is really beautiful and relaxing, but I can’t begin to think of how hard it is to maintain!

      I have a ton of white walls and furniture and it’s actually been so easy to clean. I might be addicted to white lacquer. :)

    I love a clean, light feeling space. This images are so pretty & I agree, all white definitely doesn’t have to feel hospital-like.

      I have a ton of white in my house — including two light beige couches and so much easier than you think. My white walls are a breeze to clean.

    I’m totally obsessed with clean white spaces (plus a few pops of detail and color as accents!)
