Warm Whites

Now, as a lover of all things color, I usually shy away from rooms dominated by white. Its often cold and modern and to be honest, just impractical. However, we are in a rented condo in Singapore – one which is very stark and white and I realize there is a lot to like. Color and textures are beautifully highlighted when in a sea of white. Its easy to breath in the space and While I might not be totally sold I do see the merits of all-white when it can be cozy, personal and even welcoming. I love the rooms below for use that – their use of white in a warm and comfortable way! 
A master bedroom in white by Lindsay Bond. Bond updated this 1950's cottage with a white backdrop and eclectic furniture pieces. The living room above is from the same home.

Another view of Bond's master bedroom.... beautiful use of the antiqued mirror too! 

White rustic bedroom by designer Myra Hoefer. I love how the small antique rug adds so much life with so little effort. 

The all white kitchen of cookbook editor and Editor-in-Chief of Food & Wine, Carole Lalli, featured in House Beautiful in February 2009. You can't beat a crisp white kitchen and this one has warmth and personality with handmade subway tiles and neural toned floors!
