White walls showcase colorful Danish style

I never thought I would say this, but crisp white walls are definitely becoming more alluring to me. Check out this vignette that I stumbled on last night:



The beautiful range of colors and patterns stand out so well against the white background. I tried to picture this vignette with a different wall color, but, each time, I kept going back to the white walls. I think I have finally learned to appreciate white walls.

Though most of the walls in my home are white, it was initially because we moved in when I was pregnant and I didn't want to be exposed to any paint fumes. I used to harbor fantasies of one day painting every room in the house, preferably a warm color. No more.

Certainly not after seeing these great images from the website belonging to Danish designer Rie Elise Larsen.

The photo above is definitely going into my permanent inspiration files. I don't remember if I've ever told you about my fondness for cubbies of all kinds, including printer's trays.


The sweet mobile shown in the photo above is inspiring all sorts of craftiness on our end here.

Just look at all the white in the photo above. It would be such a design crime to have it any other way.

If you like the images above, you may be interested in taking a virtual tour of Rie Elise Larsen's home, found on Bo Bedre here. Here are a couple images from that tour.



Can you imagine the delicious conversations that take place at that tiny white table? And, of course, I had to post this delightful kid's room.

What colors do you find yourself drawn to these days? Have you ever shied away from a certain color only to realize later that you like it?

They're very inspiring. These white rooms might look cute with colored floors. Perhaps a light turquoise?

Good Morning Minnie...

I am definitely going to check out that site. That's why I painted my kitchen, living room and dining room cream so that all of my color would pop. I'm so glad I did.

I'm a big fan of an all white interior. I find it easier to display our collection of art and objects. It always seems light and fresh.

Gena, You're right. Those lampshades are so charming.

Thanks to everyone else for the comments. Maybe now I'll be dreaming of painting the rooms that we did get around to painting (bedrooms) back to white one day!
