clean + calming

i've posted all white interiors before but i just can't seem to get over them. there is something clean, orderly, and calming about them and those are all qualities i crave for my home. this home of Style at Home design editor Ann Marie Favot is one of my current favorites.





what kind of qualities do you crave for your home?

I love the white, it just seems like it won't stay that way. That's why I like it in the kitchen... you can always wipe everything down. I don't think I would do it in a bedroom or living room. They do look nice and clean though!

Comfort, function, and order/tidiness. I really think a clean, clutter free home creates such a peaceful atmosphere. Somewhere I want to be. And somewhere I want my kids to want to be.

Love the white!! Just thinking it's not practical until I don't have little sticky toddler fingers touching everything. Maybe someday. =)

I agree.. I love all white! It would be so hard for me to keep them clean though.. I want my home to be comfortable. I don't like going to a home where it feels like you can't sit or touch anything! I want people to just plop down on the couch and feel at home.

I also like the whiteness--but like the others, it would NOT stay clean, especially with a husband and dog (ha!). I really want our house to be comfortable and home-y, somewhere that's stylish, but not at the expense of comfort, if that makes sense. I want it to be full of my favorite things... I'm getting there!

I agree with you all completely. White isn't very practical. I think I like the idea of it more than anything. Maybe when my husband and I are empty nesters than I can have my white home. :)
