Hello, I’m Joanna. I write for Arcadian Lighting, a brilliant place to find any and every light fixture you could ever want. Through guest posts such as this one I get to share the gorgeous interiors I run across on a typical day surfing the web. My passions are interior design in all of its forms from modern to traditional. I’ve never met a style I didn’t like. Speaking of modern, when you consider an all white décor you may find yourself thinking in terms of coolness, not warmth. And in many circumstances you would be right, however with the right amount of light from a brilliant light fixture or by using layers of tone and texture you can warm up a white space beautifully. Here are some ideas to consider. Thanks to the lovely I Do, I Don’t Design blog for allowing me to share some of my finds with you today.
Honey-toned wood plank flooring and wood beams at the ceiling make this space warm and inviting.
Butcher board counter tops and brass accents with honey toned floors create an inviting kitchen experience.
This room depends upon natural lighting to bring warmth indoors to a blue based white space. If the chandelier were lit along with a couple of other lighting fixtures the rooms would be saturated in a nice golden glow.
This modern white space feels cozy when soft pastel accents are added through pillow and ottoman.
A soft lamb throw and rug cozy this room right up. Jewel tones on the sofa draw the eye across the space. Not sure what to think of the orangey red table lamp by window—it seems a bit out of place.
If all modern furniture were used this room might feel cold and uninviting, however, with the placement of cane back chairs and a large knotted rug, the room is more than welcoming. I love that interesting little pendant light over the dining table.
The softest of nude shades gives this room a sophisticated and chic vibe. The lamb throws and Flokati rug create a tactile experience. Love the unusually tall floor lamp in the far corner.
A reclaimed rustic wood table and simple white dishes give this small space a humble look.
