timber + snow

December 29, 2012


Well, today there is snow outside my window (and a roaring fire inside).  And it brings to mind one of my very favorite “color” combinations —  a background of white with touches of warm brown. The warm neutrals found in natural wood finishes, usually flooring and furniture, accomplish this best.  Those ‘Swedes’ are masters of this yin/yang aesthetic and DC designer Darryl Carter also does this well.

Here are some fabulous images I’ve pinned over the past year, showing the beauty of white walls paired with simple natural textures.

Enjoy ~
