When you think about it, we all spend a lot of our lives in our houses. That’s why my future apartment has to be a place to call my own - a creative environment for my dreams, a refuge from the world. It used to be a far away project, but it’s in my reach now so I’m actually experiencing a pre-decorating frenzy in anticipation of the moment.
The thing I really like right now is white furniture. It did occur to me it’s quite unpractical for couches and armchairs – they would probably get dirty very fast and changing the upholstery from time to time seems like a costly nightmare. Other than the practical reasoning, I’m in love with the idea of a white room with colorful details all over. Wren Living does some wonderful white and ivory wardrobes with a retro vibe that would solve my many storage problems and look amazing in the process. And to top it of, they can custom make all the furniture to fit your space perfectly.
I can’t stop day dreaming about an all ivory walk in closet with tones of cupboards and cabinets for all my clothes, shoes and jewelry. Just imagine how beautiful the white would look with all the colorful clothes inside carefully organized according to season and shade! Yes, I’m a bit of a nutcase when it comes to sorting and depositing my things, I love to do it – it’s my own kind of porn.
Choosing white furniture leaves you a lot of room (pun intended) to play with the smaller decorative elements that give personality to a space: curtains, pillows, lamps, rugs, blankets, sheets, art objects. Versatility is important since I get bored easily. That's why a base that's easy to change up by adding small elements to the original furniture is something I'm already thinking about.
Is white furniture something you'd ever consider for your house decor?
