Interior Obsessions – White

Each year as the New Year rolls around, I get intrigued by the purity and clean looks of the all-white interior. Personally, it’s not something I could do in my own house – firstly because I like wood finishes too much, but also because my huge hairy black dog would really put a damper on the pristine look. But there’s something about the spaces shown here that really lends a sense of calm, a feeling of starting fresh.

Sometimes it’s the lack of color (I do realize that white is ALL color, but you know what I mean) that makes a space feel anticipatory, like all possibilities are still open and waiting. In any case, there is certainly something appealing about these white, quiet rooms.
