Dazzlingly White Rooms

25 Jan

In honor of the record-breaking amounts of snow that have hit the East Coast this past weekend, I thought I’d do a blog post focused on the color white.  I LOVE the color, or absence of color, white– to me it is clean, and relaxing, allowing space for my mind to pause in the midst of overstimulation.

I have heard some comment that white is too institutional for them, but there are ways to add softness and depth to a white room, which we will see in some of these photos.

The white subway tiles, white floors, walls and ceilings in the next photo grabbed my attention.  I like how they added texture with accessories, including the rug, and some off-white fabric help provide a slight contrast.

This room seems very warm to me, the lamp provides a warm light, and again the textures used add coziness. (That’s a technical term)

I included this last photo to show how much color accessories can add.  I love the books on the wall! Too cute!

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
