White Light








My love affair with white is no secret. While colour therapists will argue white has little to no therapeutic benefits, my own well being thrives in a white room. I love the purity and calm that comes from white, and have spent hours looking at white rooms on- line. In fact I have an entire album of white rooms in my bookmarks, and I'm happy to share some of my favourites posted above.

After a summer of sadness I was so excited to break out a can of white paint and go to work creating a bedroom I could really breathe in. A bedroom that would make me feel like I was sleeping in the clouds . I added the Chinese lantern so that in my dreamy state of mind, I could imagine I was gazing at the moon before falling asleep.

While working up the courage to embrace a white bedroom, I came across these delicious treats. They are so gorgeous and refreshing I could happily live in any one of these rooms! A white room is able to clear the rubish out of the mind and give us a sense of clarity. With little to distract us, it's a colour my eyes are happy to feast on.

So now you know my weakness... What is your go-to colour?


These rooms are found at Beach Studios UK. http://www.beachstudios.co.uk/locations

  2. My husband and I just finished developing our basement this past winter and I painted the guest room/craft room white. I also have a white trundle bed (Ikea) and white craft organizers that take up one entire wall. I love it! But I haven't had time to add the finishing touches yet. That will come one day. :)

  3. Isn't it so refreshing?! My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed our white sanctuary, (as you can see per his enthusiasm above).

    I've started our nursery which is white, but it's on pause for now. I love working with it is a backdrop though.

  6. I LOVE white rooms but not in my house. I think they are so calming but in my house white equals dirt and for me colors feel comfy. That being said I will envy you for your white rooms as with 3 dogs I would never be able to have such a thing.
