Through My Eyes: Structured, Architectural White
from Domaine Home
Focused detailsOne of the beauties about structured white environments is that you can use more detail and no color. The details in moldings, trim and other decorations are better revealed with whites and shadows. It would be difficult to admire the ceiling in this gorgeous 19th century Parisian apartment if it were painted in a color.
A white room allows you to have some space inside of you, as well as around you. For me, thats what it does. It makes me happy because its so light and Im bringing myself into it, as opposed to the other way around.

Creating a clean, white template serves as some fabulous encouragement for keeping a space tidy. The absence of color puts everything elseincluding a messon display. The use of white in this Brooklyn apartment encourages the flow, and putting everything in its place.

I think theres something very appealing about clean, light and structured designs. They make for refreshing environments when you come home from a busy day. The shapely design of the fireplace mantel in this room is thought provoking without being overwhelming.
The subtlety of using different whites in one room creates some major depth and interest. This look does an even better job of highlighting shadows in trim and casings. The effect engages your mind!
Stage set for personalizationStark white is a wonderful backdrop to add any color, subtle or bright, depending on mood, personality, or season. Anything you do, whether its a taupe or a hot pink, is going to look very cool. A printed rug, book spines in an array of mixed-up colors, and a fabulous dress all work so well in this bright, white space!

It's so important to have a space where you can feel like yourself! I adore how all-white spaces allow your mind to concentrate on what you desire. Details like painted brick and Lincrusta engage your mind, while the lack of color prevents distractions.
White walls and trim provide the perfect frame for beautiful window views. This room keeps the attention focused on the chic sitting area and the trees right outside the window. It's always nice to reflect what's outside indoors, too, like this vase full of flowering branches.
