Interior Obsession: White House

white walls / dark floors

Not the White House, just a house with white interiors…

If you ask me, there’s nothing better than splashes of white – white walls, whitewashed floors, white furniture, white accessories…See where I’m going here? I totally realize this design choice is not for everyone, but it’s definitely for me. So, I rounded up a handful of my favorite white interiors for this week’s obsession…

So what do you think? Are you an all-out lover of white interiors or do you hate it with a passion (seems to be an all or nothing type of deal)? I’ll love you either way. So feel free to share your genuine opinion.

I too am obsessed with black and white homes and all areas of design really. 🙂


Completely obsessed – particularly white walls and ceilings paired with black falls, as in the first picture. Classic.


Good point Grace. I can’t do a white couch either. We do have a white lounge chair though – it’s leather so it’s easy to clean.


I love white everything and my home is white. The one thing I can’t have be white is the couch because I WILL dirty it. White is calming and refreshing, especially on a spring day when the sun is shining through the windows. Can’t wait for spring!

Just saw some photos of your house Jennifer. Love what you’ve done so far.


I long for white walls and a grey couch with sunlight spilling in. I too live with beige walls and I desperately want to paint them.


We recently bought a fixer upper and painted the whole thing white. Love it! Makes our big collection of artwork jump off of the wall.


I actually have a similar story Ana…When I was younger and still living at home, I wanted to paint every wall in my house a different color. But now, all I want is white, white, white. My how things have changed.


I love it! I grew up in a house with white walls all around, so when we got our own house we wanted to paint it with different colors. But when I look at these pictures, it makes me swoon!


Yep, I know how you feel. I’m craving white walls too Sharon.


I am craving white walls!! I live in a rental with the worst yellowy beige walls and it has stunted my decorating. Nothing looks good with those walls!! I never would have said I wanted white walls in a home before but now I NEED it!

Me too Kel!


I dream of living in an all white house some day. Of course, I would destroy it in about five seconds but MAN are they gorgeous!

I dream about white french doors, white trim, white couches, white cabinets, but will have to wait till my children are a little older.. someday!!

You have a good point there Bev. Especially white floors- I’m not sure I could keep them clean between myself, my husband, and our dog. But I would love to try.


I don’t know if I could personally pull it off in my home because I’m so clumsy and I would end up dirtying it up beyond repair within a few weeks, but I think it has a very calming feel to it.
