Cozy Charming & Rustic: White Rooms

"White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black...God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white." 
                                                                                                               -- G. K. Chesterton

This week we will take a look at the range of Scandinavian design using white. Whether the rooms are rustic, eclectic, modern, or minimalist, what they share is a strong use of white.  When it comes to designing warm and welcoming white spaces that can withstand winter's chill, wcan learn a great deal from our fabulous Scandinavian friends!  

Today we take a look at inviting entries, gathering spaces, and sweet spots to slumber.  Each of these dreamy spaces are sure to make you re-think using white!  Whether everything from the ceilings to the floors are white, or white is mixed with natural materials or a bit of color, each of these rooms are cozy, charming, rustic bits of heaven!  


I absolutely love, love, love that sweet & sassy shade of yellow!
Isn't this sweet pooch the cutest?
