15 Snow-White Rooms For A Winter Afternoon

15 Snow-White Rooms For A Winter Afternoon

It's chilly here in San Francisco today, and as usual around this time of year, I find myself grumbling this useless sentiment: "If it's going to be so cold, why can't it just snow?" Alas, wintry landscapes just aren't part of our climate repertoire around here. So for Bay Area folks longing for snow, here are some snow-white interiors to sigh over instead. Mostly-white rooms, with white walls and furnishings, can be tough to pull off. If you're interested in trying out the look in your own home, or even if you're just struggling to work with the bright white walls of your rental, you should find lots of ideas and inspiration here, among our Apartment Therapy House Tour archives. Some of these rooms use bright pops of color sparingly against the white, creating a stylish contrast. Others use white as the foundation of a primarily neutral color palette. Still others play with metallics and glossy finishes, or soft, unexpected textures (like that feather chandelier (!!) in the first photo, second row). What do you think makes these rooms work? Would you enjoy living with a wintry white palette?
