Lately, Evan and I have been making small strides in improving our home’s aesthetic. We’ve owned our house for close to four years now and we’re finally ready to invest a little and start creating a space that we’re really proud of and that reflects us. We’ve been making small but significant purchases like this rug that currently lives under my desk and these Eames replicas that are now our dining chairs. We also recently added all new lighting and drywall to our studio which has made such a positive difference in our work space. Last year, we painted our bedroom bright white (from a dark chocolate brown) and got all white linens and white curtains…I can’t tell you how much we love it. Well, maybe I can… we love it so much, that we’ve decided to paint the ENTIRE house white. I just love the clean, calm, minimalist feel of an all white room. And since, most of our furniture is some form of natural wood (or wood veneer for the few rogue Ikea pieces we still keep around), I’m really loving the images above as inspiration for our home’s future look and feel. The best part of a neutral palette, is that I can change it very easily with a pop of color or pattern when ever I want.
Some people find white boring, what do you think? Are you a fan of neutral palettes? Or is color more your thing? Also, has anyone out there painted their wood floors white or any other color? I’d love to know! Evan’s not too keen on the idea but I think it sounds like fun. xoxo!
