Inspiration

Happy Monday! Today is expected to be a really really busy day at work, so you’ll pardon my brevity. It’s been a while since I’ve posted some all-white interiors, so let’s dive right in, shall we? To make the lack of color more bearable for those of you opposed to all-white-everything, you can play a gam where you try to guess how many audible gasps the following pictures caused me (hint: think double digits).

I had about 6 simultaneous heart attacks when I first saw this, and the first words out of my mouth were, um colorful. No pun intended. (No pun achieved?)

Love this idea for a night table.

from here 

I can’t even. I don’t know what function that table is serving as there are two chairs of different heights, but I love it.

I love Railroad style apartments, especially ones with white floors.

from here 

Pretty much the perfect kitchen. And I have that radio on the counter!

from here 

This one isn’t so bad, either. Love the industrial look of it.

I don’t know what I love more, the Marc Jacobs carrier bag, the Therese Sennerholt postcards on the wall, or the rustic desk. I can’t deicide.

Sorry to once again inundate you with more stark white interiors, but come on. I think Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes said it best: “If you don’t know me by now, you will never never never know me. Oooooh.”

  • Remember when Jim Carrey’s heart popped out of his chest, beat a few times and then went back in? In The Mask? Yup, that’s how I’m feeling right now.

    That window is just heavenly and the third room is so white that I can barely tell what’s in it – purr-fec-tion!!!

    You certainly know how to make a girl’s Monday!!! :D

    *Scuttles off to pin them all*

    P.S. My guess is 25 times.

    • I do! And I had a similar reaction! Also thought of the Genie in Aladdin when his jaw hits the floor with the sound of a large weight, DONNGG!

      I agree with you, if I can’t distinguish what is going on in a room from all the white shapes, we’re on the right track. I’m glad you love these interiors as much as I do, because they really started my week off on a high note. Pin away!

      25 times is about right :)

  • Did you see the link I tweeted you? From Love Nordic? Your post makes me feel the same way, soothed on a gray and headachey day. That first photo? I would absolutely K.I.L.L for a window like that. I am falling more and more in love with white. So there.

    • I just saw it! Thank you! You can bet it’s going to end up on a post here sooner or later, haha.

      I know, that window is incredible. I would take a room of all rainbow colors (or worse, rainbow stickers) to have a window like that. And I’m so happy I’m making a believer out of you!

  • Hey. I am a kind of a colour girl, hence colourliving! However, LOVE that window. In fact, love all the pics as long as I can jazz them up with colour.
    Did you have a busy day? Here it’s Blue Monday and I felt it. Viewed some crap flats and felt uninspired… not a good thing in Tina’s world.
    Anyway, spring is in the air…. Off to eat grilled fish. Ciao!

    • Ha, yes, Colour Living doesn’t exactly denote stark white to me, but that’s okay! I appreciate color in small doses, and I don’t think I’m slick enough to even pull off an all-white home!

      Monday was very busy for me. But tell me, what’s Blue Monday? How was your grilled fish?? I love grilled fish. We can’t do it like you guys, though. Even if you think those flats were “crap” I bet they were a lot nicer than the apartments we have here!

  • Ketchup ketchup ketchup! These looks like places that men with beards live (and I don’t mean my dad). That window’s rather problematic to curtain isn’t it? I do like the blinds though. And that’s all you’re getting from me on the white subject.

    There are some serious ‘fros going down in that video! What an awful song.

    • Hahahaha, ketchup. I literally laughed out loud when I read that. I’ll take what I can get from you on the subject of white. :)

      I can’t believe you don’t get down with Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes! Everyone loves a good fro.

  • The black, the wood, the metal, the tiny red flowers – which items made you gasp or are they tolerable? Yes, those windows are pretty heavenly. Did you notice that there is a guy standing in the corner of one of the photos? He’s wearing all white so you might have missed him.
    Of course, I love every single room. Though, ketchup wouldn’t be my peeve, it would be finding loose strands of hair on the floor.

    • I can’t tell if you were kidding about the guy in the corner, so now I’m studying all the pictures and I still can’t see him. Tell me if I should stop! I’m becoming concerned for my eyesight.

      Oh, all of those little elements are tolerable for me. And gorgeous, I might add. Though you’re right, given that I have a black dog who sheds, I can’t imagine how much time I’d spend vacuuming all his hair off the floor. I could just shave him, that would make things easier, and he’d require fewer baths.

      • Oh dear, I totally forgot to add “kidding!” I blame it on momnesia. I wasn’t trying to be mean, I promise. I just loved Chi’s comment so much, “…the third room is so white that I can barely tell what’s in it”. I was just working off of that notion. You’re eyesight is muy bueno.

        • Wheeewww! I spent so long looking for him and was convinced I was going crazy!! xoxo

  • I was looking for the man in white too! I don’t think he’s there.Unless it’s George Michael from the Careless Whisper video. He would be very well camouflaged. Apart from the eyebrows anyway.

    • Oh god, if it was Georgios I’d be able to spot him from a mile away. The lamps in his hands would be a dead giveaway.

  • […] it comes to me, only one thing makes me truly feel better: all-white interiors. It’s been a while since I’ve drooled over some, so join me, won’t you? (Side story: last night I had to ask how to spell […]
