White is the new black. At least in the world of home decor. More and more all white styling and decor are popping up all over the decorating scene – and I’m loving it! I find myself looking at the pictures and dream of a pure, white, calm, minimalistic home. Clutter free and calmness all around – ahhh. But in reality I would probably go nuts if I did live in an all white home – a girl can dream, can’t she?
I am drawn to the calm and clean expression. Deep down inside I am a minimalist – but I also love pretty things! And they take up room and need a place to be displayed – ergo the minimalist must compromise. I try to find the balance somewhere in between. Sometimes the minimalist takes over and I go through the house and stuff things in drawers and cupboards, when I feel like there are too much stuff around me.
And as much as I love white I do love a hint of colour too. My favourites are shades of grey, dusty pastels and a touch of black to break up the girly feel. Colour has actually been proven to have en effect on our mood.
So I guess the real challenge is to find the right compromise between white and colour and the right amount of things. For now I will settle with giving my String pocket shelf a white makeover.
How do you feel about all white?
