My Interior Style - Dreamy White +...+...

The lovely Rachel of dwellings and décor tagged me a while ago to post one interior image that encompasses my interior design style. The trouble is I haven't come across such ONE image, so instead I'm expressing my dream home via the following recipe

The main ingredient is a dreamy white canvas, white walls & white painted wooden floors...

with a touch of modern elegance, the sofa of choice would be sectional (or maybe chesterfield?)

blend in some country opulence

with another sprinkle of clean modern interiors in the ways of colour pop & large artwork

and finally add the finish touches... a few plants as the "garden" as this is my dream apartment

and the most important part of the furnishing & decoration is adding colour! and of course many framed prints are also required :)

Oh, your dream house sure does sound dreamy. Would you love a very nice Australian house guest? :)

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

of course Amanda! :) pack your bags now ;)

Elisa said...

Love your style! My dream dwelling would have a mostly white interior as well and be located on the seashore. I can picture seashells and starfish scattered around as decoration.
Now you have me day dreaming big time! :)

diamondsinchampagne said...

What a great post.
I am sooo loving the neutral tones, and of course the shabby chic interiors. I am in love with French provincial furniture so my interior design style would def. encompass that!

janettaylor said...

gorgeous! http://isnotfashion.blogspot.com

sarah said...

Capturing your entire design style in ONE image?? That's surely impossible. I truly love the mismatched frames grouped together. Yet when I try it, it never looks right. Hmmm... must work on that.

Jen said...

Sounds lovely! Love the business of all the framed prints and the white wooden floors. Gorgeous ! x

Marietta said...

My dream house is this country english style your pics show! Romantic and cute, with many many flowers!

Little Miss Tiara said...

Oh! My room now is currently all white! *before I stained the walls with something yucky like... spills coffe on it, lol. And I love it! :D it makes my room look bigger! Haha, and I have a little red-green chinese accessories hang on it :D perrrrrfect! haha

Suzanne said...

If I had a room decorated like that!! Lovely!!

Marie said...

Now that bedroom is pour moi! Luv all the photos of your dream house :)

The pearl necklaces used as decor in the first picture are so clever. I think I'll try that in my bedroom.

Annady said...

I'd love to share a space with you. As much as I like color, I also love a space that's clean and calm like the ones you're sharing!

Kosmopolight said...

Right there with you...I love a white interior. With my husband around, though, it wouldn't stay white for long! xo

Rachel said...

Christina said...

Amazing photos! Definitely something I could imagine myself living. :)

White is such a fabulous house color- But I feel like its also hard to get perfect! Really shows off a designer's talent!

Wow, Beautiful style! Love the white floors.

rightbank said...

This is so great! I'm the one who started the one image challenge so it makes me so happy to see that people are still playing along! And I love, love, love white so I'm loving your dream home. White with a pop of color. It doesn't get much better.

Winnie said...

It's late and all I can think of is diving into that first image of that bedroom and falling into a deep sleep. Mmmmm.

black vanilla rose said...

Lovely shots!! The ones with the black and red and just stunning xx

michelle said...

how lovely indeed! :)

Nicole Marie said...

In the first picture, the frames and stuff above the bed are amazing! so gorgeous and original!

RhiannonM said...

The windows in the picture with the table and red/white chairs make me jealous for real. Whoever owns that space had better appreciate those windows every minute of their lives.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Ah, I love white painted wooden floors. And giant windows. If a room has those two things, it's good with me!

Trisch said...

Mmm love white, but it's so impractical for me :(

trisch xo

captivateme said...

the room with the mirrors in it is just divine!! I love all white, as well :-)

Callie Grayson said...

Christina said...

Thats a lot of white for me. I'd be afraid of getting something dirty! (;

Amelia said...

I love all the stuff on the wall in the first picture. I could never arrange it that well. I'm definitely a country opulence kind of person.

notebookdoodles said...

Diane said...

Ooh, I share your love for white spaces. These are lovely!!

We are going through a 19-month long renovation. sigh :( But the intention is to have an all-white interior! I love white. It reminds me of...(oddly) Greece!

candace said...

I love your post! It's obvious we love the very same things.

My new blog isn't complete...it misses you :(

Hope all is well, Candi
