White done right!

I get so happy when I come across a space like this!!

Not only has it been photographed beautifully, really showing the beautiful light filled rooms, but the interior has been done perfectly, at least in my humble opinion!!

This living room, with all it's white, still reads very cozy to me. I like how you get the sense of more space... when in the living room, look through the study, your eye travels to the bedroom. The rooms are infused with lot's of texture, older furniture - perhaps hand me downs - designer lighting (check out the Verner Panton lamp on the danish modern sideboard), travel finds (neck pieces) on stands, the rung in the bedroom.... wait till you see the rest of the house!!

Ethnic accessories creep in everywhere, and mingle so well with the all white interior!!

Framing a piece of cloth, is a great way to display  fragile textile! ... it breaks up the white wall, ties in the caramel velvet covered wing back chair and the beautiful organic coffee table(s) and bench. Notice how the old style chair by the window has been slip covered in white fabric. Great way to re-purpose furniture!!

Pocket doors keep the living room and the bedroom separate, yet keep the flow of the two spaces working well. What perhaps was an awkward little room before, has been united with the bedroom. The space now functioning as a study, making the transition between the two rooms less obvious. Imagine sitting at the old wood table, with a view of the garden.... I could be blogging from there, what about you?

Simple, clean, calm, uncluttered, white, beautiful... are some of the words that pop into my mind here.

Like the rest of the house, great ethnic infusion with the wood Asian benches, and I love the contemporary lighting (Tolomero bed side lamps). Keeping this space open to the living room, calls for a clutter free environment!!

A clean, modern bath room, in tune with the rest of the house. All you have to do is ad a few touched of texture... greenery, artwork and a necklace, artfully displayed! Voila!

Come join the party!
Heirlooms grace the table, and looking around the corner, a glimpse of the kitchen.

Great little eating area. Why keep your everyday tableware hidden, display it like here along with your cook books! Again, great lighting! White Poul Henningsen lamp above the table! The seating is not to shabby either ;), but I can't tell if the chairs are "the real deal" (read Arne Jacobsen Ant chair), but does that really matter anyway?

Another look of the kitchen, probably the "darkest" room in the house, but kept light in feel. The white marble counter tops, white glossy subway tiles as back splash, and the glass paneled door in the back, light is bouncing from surface to surface.

So, what do you think? "White done right!" , or not?
I hope you enjoyed this house tour!
