decor, inspiration

dreaming in all-white

Tiles from Douglas Jones, marble samples from WOMAG, large marble tile from Italtile, fabrics from Home Fabrics.

While we've been offering up a lot of dark inspiration in line with House and Leisure's July 2017 issue, which is all about black and white decor and glam renovations, we haven't stepped over completely into the light end of the spectrum just yet. Imagine a calming, all-white space with a crisp white couch, a soft alpaca rug and light marble table tops... totally dreamy, right? To pull this look off practically, you couldn't have dogs with dirty paws or kids with chocolate-covered hands, not to mention friends who laugh a little too hysterically with a full glass of red wine in hand. We're not sure those things are worth giving up, either. But if we could have it all, then these would be the items we'd choose to make our most whimsical of interior dreams come true.
