White and Wood

Sometimes, I just want to clear my design decks and simplify everything.  This week, I've been really inspired by some of the white and wood cottage interiors I saw last week while visiting my Mama in Eastern Oregon.  The beauty of the wood takes center stage when you pair it with a beautiful white background.

Yes! yes ! yes ! I love them all .. although having to boards on the floor might prove a bit of a tripping hazard lol Don't you love the styling in some photos ?
This makes me want to repaint my home .. every room white.

It's an interesting one, because the world seems to be divided into people who love white + timber, and those who react very strongly in a negative way to it.

Me? I love the combination. Fresh, earthy and comforting, all at once.

I used to think of white as cold and sterile, even in small amounts, but lately I've turned the corner and now find it refreshing and relaxing. If I lived in a warmer climate, I'd probably paint more of my house white, but for now it's relegated to the trim and floor of my boudoir...great post.

So true!

I love color also and couldn't live in all white, but it is lovely to look at!

I have only just found your wonderful blog! It's great and full of inspiration. As an antique dealer I am constantly seeking inspiration of placing vintage in the modern context. A great selection of images showing how to use white and timber, I love the cushion "couch" on the floor, very cosy...I am your new latest follower! Tammy

I've been obsessed with "white and wood" since I was a teenager. When I discovered the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood," I was convinced that this song was about the decor as much as the love affair.

Just give that song a listen while looking at the photos you've posted...magic!

She showed me her room.
Isn't it good -- Norwegian wood.
