White + Whimsy


Hard to believe that this bright airy space is actually a garage converted into a studio for designer Neil Stemmet. Little pops of colour and bursts of butterflies make this clinical white space suddenly welcoming (and a little whimsical). Just goes to show, the one step between a dingy space and a chic transformation is often just a single coat of white paint.

As of late, I have come to realize that if done right, white can be calming, and peaceful, not borish. What a creative idea for a garage. Have a good day!

I am feeling the all white thing a lot more these days. And these images are beautiful!

Also crazy about the pink doors below - if i thought my sons would let me, i'd go for it!
