Hello Fabulistas! I love the white-on-white look in rooms full of unique architectural details. There’s something about this style that makes everyone feel positive and hopeful, and that all is good in the world. Here are some of the many reasons I admire this look.
The boarding school from season three of American Horror Story is a grand home filled with elegant white interiors. The Buckner Mansion in New Orleans made the perfect setting for lots of spellbinding drama. White-on-white interiors also set the stage for decor drama, too!

One 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, that’s what it does. It makes me happy because it’s so light and I’m 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 else—including a mess—on display. The use of white in this Brooklyn apartment encourages the flow, and putting everything in its place.

I think there’s 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 personalization
Stark white is a wonderful backdrop to add any color, subtle or bright, depending on mood, personality, or season. Anything you do, whether it’s 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.
