White Out

I love color, but simple white is my go-to shade for many things. I am drawn towards white furniture, linens (esp towels), drapes, dishes, roses, dogs, and clothes (esp t-shirts).

As far as interior decor goes, colorless items impart a fresh, crisp mood and provide a blank slate, allowing for flexibility in accessories and accents. I'm usually not a fan of an all-white room, but I do think a white foundation is a good place to start. Color restraint can definitely help those who struggle with getting a space to look cohesive. It's always easy to add color with art, paint, lamps, pillows, and rugs - but it's not so easy to take it away on the stuff that is more static like a sofa or an upholstered bed.

Despite what you might think - white textiles can be easier to clean/maintain than colored fabrics since the colorfast issue is not at play. White bath towels are the ultimate example of this...check out anyone's old towel stash and you'll find a bunch of stained and faded colored ones.

My favorite perfume is even called Love in White!

With all that said, there is not a single room in our house that is painted white. To me, white walls look best when there are great architectural details and/or there are really high ceilings - neither of those conditions exist in our house since we live in a 1948 ranch style home!

  1. I am so loving the color white... I actually use the lider desk chair and LOVE IT! It's affordable and super comfy!

  2. I love all of your white picks...especially the little dogs!

  3. I'm really liking that console from Ballard. I think I may get it. Thanks for the idea! You have the best links!

  4. I've always had white towels. They're the best. You can even bleach them and they won't fade!

  5. Hmm.. White towels.. I think that's the best idea I've heard all day. I mentioned that to my husband and he said, "Like hotels," and I said, "That's a good thing, right?" :-)

  6. Okay, I'm obviously loving your blog with these million comments:) I love white! Coincidentally, my jett desk is supposed to be delivered tomorrow! I already have a similar white chair (but mine is from Crate & Barrel).
