From airy provincial kitchens to minimally modern living rooms, the all-white theme seems to be thriving in homes everywhere. The monochromatic color scheme is known to be sleek but not suffocating, sophisticated yet cozy and most importantly, simple but not boring. Take for instance Angela Simmons, who showed off her all-white country kitchen in a video recently posted to Instagram celebrating her son Sutton’s fifth birthday. Sure, the presents are nice to look at ,but there’s so much else going on in that kitchen and accompanying nook.
There are many avenues to explore when crafting an all-white kitchen. Instead of going with a more industrious, metropolitan vibe, Angela opted for a down-to-earth space that features white wood paneled cabinets, rich walnut-colored vaulting and dark hardwood floors. The exposed wooden beams do more than just add support — they work harmoniously with the all-white cabinets to bring about a sense of calm, of warmth in a cozy home that’s strictly made for enjoying the simple things in life.
And then there’s the mood change. If the top half of Angela’s kitchen sweeps you up into its whimsical homestyle atmosphere, then the bottom half lulls you in with its dramatic dark wood floors and black-and-white dining chairs. There’s a city vibe emanating from this nook with its nocturnal notes on full display, including the glass table that doesn’t allow for a single detail to be missed. This is a kitchen made for someone who wants the best of both worlds: the city slicker and the rustic wild child.
There are so many ways to go all-white in your home. Browse through the classic wood-and-white combinations, or the blank canvas iterations made for highlighting pops of color, or even a simple yet luxe black-and-white scheme. When white’s a factor in your space, there’s a little something for everything to enjoy.
