Since I am not a white interior fan, it says a lot when I decide to feature an all-white room decor. But what makes this one stands out is the use of textures and many shades of white. It is a look that fits with rough and rustic natural wood. Emma of Emmas blog featured it to showcase the styling work of Kråkvik & D’Orazio.
Another find from Emma is Dixie, a Swedish retailer. Sadly for us, they only sell in Scandinavia. Have a look at their styled tabletop from the Spring 2010 Collection as another great example. This time, the stylists play with forms and patterns to add interest to a white palette.
White on white is not a new idea. Look at the several tones of whites that appear on this spa-feeling bathroom. You feel definitely relaxed and peaceful in that environment. It almost makes me want to try it on a future home.
Organic Modern Bathroom
Another room that feels inviting is the modern rustic white bathroom with the firewood wall that appeared on the January 2010 issue of Canadian House and Home. The bathroom is part of their 2010 Top 10 trends. This trend is referred to as Organic Modern. To reproduce this look, seek a modern freestanding tub that you oppose to the texture of a tall stack of wood and a concrete floor.

I love white on white decor (much to my husband’s dismay as we have a 2 year old). We found the greatest white leather sofa from Natuzzi that, minus the absence of skirting, looks much like the pottery barn style couch. It makes things so much easier to simply wipe up spills instead of having to wash slipcovers, yet we still get to enjoy the serenity of white furniture in a cottage-like setting.

Jess: I can imagine how often you needed to wash your white slipcovers. Especially the new leather coach that are so easy to clean. I gave up on leather sofa when our cats scratched it. I still own one leather chair and my cat made holes with her teeth on the arms. For me, robust canvas slipcover cushions were my only options. But I went for a denim color which requires less frequent washing.
