Practicality doesn’t always fit into my vocabulary when it comes to style. I do however think about what needs to be taken into consideration when I design our rooms at home.
Of course, there wouldn’t be a point in making a room picture perfect only for it to be left uninhabitable out of fear of marring that perfection. I am learning more and more as we slowly renovate our home that there are options to keep style in your design that ultimately stays true to your life and its needs.
Having an entire home with wall to wall pristine white flooring has always been my way of thinking that style would certainly override practicality. It would take living it one to really understand the degree of maintenance you decide to accord to it. I can imagine how vibrant and fun these homes must be though once you walk in and are really able to see each and every piece sitting in and against the most neutral kind of backdrop. Almost like a completely blank canvas. Each element lives on its own as if it’s being displayed in an art gallery.
There are so many variations of the look from white washed boards to modern concrete filled rooms. I haven’t seen a white floor that I have not loved. What are your favorites types?
