I tend to bookmark or favorite a lot of things I find on the internet and forget what I was thinking when I do so. I thought I'd gather these rooms together and point out just what I like about each one. It's just my opinion. Let me know what you think about these rooms. Do they work for you? What do you like or hate?
I'd never be brave enough to paint my wood floors at all, let alone white. However, I've always admired the effect. I love the contrast of black in this room. It's appears only in small details: frames, lamp, chair. I also think that adding a touch of gray rather than black or another color under the table, adds interest without being harsh. And, I have a thing about tripod lamps. That this one has a wood base is perfect for this room. [source]
I love, LOVE, the chest of drawers in this room. If the walls were painted any other color than white, it wouldn't stand out as much and make the same statement. In this room, if the floors were painted white it would be too much. The balance between it all works quite nicely. [source]
