White pop!

I've long been an addict of all white interiors, just yesterday at my bridal shower I was teased by friends about my long-standing all white towels and sheets rule (it was a tip I picked up from a very stylish Aunt). All white and neutral can sometime edge towards boring after a while though, so to liven things up I love a shot of bright colour. My living room currently follows this theme - all white sofa with black accents and a bright, colourful wool blanket brought back from Peru by a friend. It always makes me feel happy and refreshed.

That's interesting. I love color, but insist on white sheets and towels-with a fabulous monogram in color though.

I adore those pops of color in the 3rd image! love vibrant colors, but they come and go. neutrals have always a special place in my heart. xo

These are striking- I never knew white could be so beautiful. I would be scared of getting things dirty though. How do you keep it clean?

Amy said...

Love all these photos - I need to talk my husband into painting all our walls white...

Tiina said...

i'm with you on trying to add some elements of color. for a long time i wore black, brown and greys alot until my son piped up and suggested i get with it and wear a little color, which i do now. in these spaces, i love that white kitchen with the white chairs and navy cusions and the pretty reddish bench seat behind. so pretty. fun post!

That last one is KILLING me! I adore that sofa, those pillows, every last little detail! I love me some white and black with pops of sophisticated color!

I'm a big fan of white too - I used to think it was because I was scared of color commitment, but it turns out I love white because it's such a great backdrop. I can't stand cluttered looking spaces, and if you start with a uniform background, you can mix up the details a lot and still look clean. Love these.

You and I are design twins. I just need to get that white sofa . . . We have all white towels and linens at ours too I broke down and got some striped linens but have yet to break them out. :)

Kristen - I always find bleach covers a multitude of sins! :) (and white is the only colour you can do this with ;) )

Right Bank/design twin - I also happen to be a huge fan of stripes, I say- break them out!

This is a look that I love as well. It's really fresh and can be adjusted at anytime.

I love white with pops of color! I'm especially loving that first image -very beautiful.

Paula Grace Halewski said...

Thank you for finding these pictures! I love white but was never comfortable with the all white room. White with POP! It is so crisp and clean but not boring!

Sarah Klassen said...

I am laughing right now :) I am convinced that you and I are connected, for I just created a "White Living" post...I kid you not! Image 07 is my very favorite - it's so gorgeous!

i do love how all white interiors showcases colors so well. i especially like the image of the mismatched colorful chairs.

I LOVE all white with pops of color. It's my go-to design scheme. But when we got dogs, that sort of went out the window. Now I have my bathroom and kitchen in the all-white theme, with pops of color, because the dogs aren't allowed in there!

A Life More Fabulous said...

SK - I often think of that when I see your blog too!
DoC - I liked them too, they're fun and playful! and it would be so easy to do with any chairs for a big statement.
Lil Bee - I totally agree- it's my favourite palette, all white is perfect for bathrooms and kitchens too, so that's good. I still have white sofas... Javier isn't allowed on them :(
