A Little White Doesn't Hurt

A Little White Doesn't Hurt

There are some who associate the love of technology to some kind of sick infatuation with emotionless, plain, and white environments reminiscent of a dental office. We beg to differ. Well, we and Austrian architects over at Schlosser & Partner. We believe that white spaces can contrast beautifully with technology - you just gotta know how to work it.

Playing off the subject of white, we immediately notice the seamless integration of light into the home. By using transparent curtains, the home gets filled with natural light, reflecting off the sleek counter tops and cabinetry (Picture 1).

Adding punches of a color become a breeze and the technology, though while the focus in this particular room (Picture 2), becomes integrated into the home and doesn't feel out of place whatsoever. This applies to all those loose electronic components as well.

Keeping consistent with the whole "light" theme, adding glass separators allow light to pass freely from room to room (Picture 3). And if you're like us who tend to work at home most of your days, having a bright desk paired with a serene white environment can really up the ante in productivity during your everyday work flow.
