Interiors: White + Wood

Such a simple, natural, uncomplicated combination: white + wood.  This Oxfordshire Barn is beautiful in its simplicity and the combination of white floors, light wooden beams, and stone accents is perfect.  Add a work in leather arm chair, and I'm sold.







































I can't decide which room is my favorite. You can see the rest of the house here.  I do adore the white painted floors, but I know if this were my space I'd inevitably add color.  Do you like the simplicity of white and wood or would you prefer a more eclectic space?

Love the space but I would add one very bright colour to give a teensy bit of warmth. Hot pink, purple, maybe lime green.

i adore this space - so simple - and can be jazzed up with just a pinch of color here and there in a snap! ..

I love how airy and relaxed it is! I think I'd definitely vacation here, but probably couldn't live without some color to liven it up a bit. But it would be the perfect place to retreat to for a week.

White & wood is a great combination - I love it!

Rachel Follett said...

I think I tend to love it the most in bathrooms and kitchens where I like a really clean feel. Just beautiful inspiration!

Bromeliad said...

Simplicity all the way.

Carriage House Antiques said...

Paige said...

I love these. They feel very clean.

drollgirl said...

i like it!!! like you, i might end up adding more color to it.

i especially love when they stack wood in those alcove (or whatever you call it) areas by the fireplace! for some reason it just makes me happy!

I never tire of these types of spaces. They're so serene. And I still dream of white floors. :)

Beach House Living said...

Stephanie said...

i definitely prefer the simple to the eclectic craziness, though eclectic rooms are fun to look at and can be chic. i just like the clean look of white and black or white and wood. great post!

I spotted the vintage suitcases by the fireplace~LUV!

Fee-AMore said...

I definitely go for the simplicity of white and wood! I really like how the last two spaces look.

Padgett Hoke said...

I prefer simplicity, with pops of color - so much easier to change up with little money spent!

The Cottage Cheese said...

That living room is absolute perfection! And the window/skylight combo in the dining room makes it so inviting. I'm obsessed with natural light flowing through a house (dark houses make me depressed and grumpy). White + wood is my favorite combination - so pure, yet so warm.

Claire Kiefer said...

This color combo and these rooms remind me of Debbie. :)

anotherfishinthesea said...

i'm like you, the color would be inevitable! but wouldnt this be such a restful place to spend a weekend away... mmmm... i relax a little just looking at it!

Pure Mod Life said...
