Alluring All-White Rooms

I love colour. I love it independently or all mixed up. I really like it in patterns, blocks and splotches. But I think my very first love is the all-white room.

A white room could be contemporary or cabin. It can look French provincial or Manahattan slick. It can be a blank canvas for some other features — possibly color, artwork or a dazzling view. Or it can be its own centerpiece. White works in every single room, and it is almost never the incorrect choice as a wall color.

For me, white is the colour of this cleared mind — open, clutter free, spacious and inviting.

White flooring with white walls really make an impression. The simple fact that these floors are wood plank keeps this from looking vintagey. Everything stands out so choose carefully.

A white room brings out the texture of this floor and functions like a spotlight for the vibrant artwork.

Unlike what you may think, white kitchens look less dirty than kitchens with dark finishes. And white cabinets are beautiful with hardwood flooring.

An all-white kitchen doesn’t need to be contemporary or stark. It can even be a little bit state.


The contemporary room is similar to a gallery for items that you wish to display. Any piece of artwork, from a contemporary sculpture to a renaissance portrait, would look great in this room.

I can’t prove it, but I guess it is easier to sleep in an all-white room. In this dreamy bedroom, white adds a bit of the French flea market.

White bedding always appears clean, refreshing and higher thread count.

Even sleek, contemporary white can feel snuggly. The emphasis in this room is on the light and the view, but doesn’t the bed look comfy?

Hollywood regency meets ethnic design. White rooms aren’t only blank slates; they could have quite intentional styles too.

Mixing improbable colours — in this scenario rusty brown and pale pink — functions better in a white room since nothing else is rival.

White leaves a giant, airy room look much bigger and airier.

A white couch in a home with kids is not the no-no you may think that it is. A pure white slipcover can be washed with bleach, keeping it a lot cleaner looking than other options.


This living room has a homey, eclectic feel because of the colorful accessories. A mishmash of vintage stuff only looks better at a white room.

White with silver and mirrors: It is elegant, classic and a little dressy. And, needless to say, both white and a well-placed mirror can make a room look much bigger.

White can be quite cozy indeed. Especially with lighting.
