As a designer, I am always asked what color scheme looks best in a space or how to add more color. Recently, I have been inspired by the simplicity of the all white interiors of homes in Sweden. The spaces feel relaxing and fresh, and any small addition of color is a great contrast.

Another psychological association with the color white is the feeling of a clean or sterile environment. Therefore, I am not surprised to see many white kitchens and bathrooms. The different shades of white and various textures are what add interest to the space.

I love the image of the sunroom (featured above) because the pop of color is the exterior landscape seen through the expansive windows. Even the hardwood floors are stained white.
