Lately, I have been dreaming about taking a break from all the pattern and colour in my life. Although I find it energizing and cheerful, there are times when I come home and think...hhhmmmm what would it be like to live in a space that was completely restful and monochromatic.
I am not talking about that "all beige" look that is in every catalogue and at every big box retailer. but all white furniture, white/off-white accents, a slightly creamy wall and minimal clutter - lets call it scandinavian-chic.
To achieve this look I already have several key pieces that have been with me forever:
- white slipcovered sofa
- white ming-style console
- a pair of oversized white ginger jars
- BM Cloud White walls
- all white bedding
- two white three drawer chests
That would mean new throw pillows, new drapery and a re-upholstered headboard and bed skirt - all in an off-white solid linen perhaps?
Here are some favorite images that serve as great inspiration...
Here are two of my favorite traditional off-whites for walls...

The more I daydream and gather these new ideas, the more I am seriously considering heading in this direction!
