Here is something I basically thought I'd never say: I really like all-white (or mostly white) rooms. As someone who has always considered herself a print patron and a color connoisseur, the idea of a room with white walls, white fixtures, white furnishings, maybe even white floors is foreign. But something happens in my brain when I see a bright, white room devoid of pizazz; it relaxes. I breathe easier. It's like a design catharsis. So, as a traitor to myself and my proclaimed aesthetic leanings, here are 12 white rooms to soothe your soul.

This TriBeCa loft (which is actually a rental space for photoshoots or events, on Venfino) celebrates natural light with white and cream furnishings, and just a touch of wood.
With architecture like this (and floors like those!), you don't need much else to make a room shine.) (via Desire to Inspire)
Got milk? Sorry, it was just too easy. This milky white room found on Vtwonen is simply satiating and heck, probably does the body good.
Clearly, vaulted, beamed ceilings and blonde ash wood floors are the perfect complement to white decor. Just a tiny dash of gray and the greenery visible through the French doors is all this room from Style at Home needs to sing.
With the help of mirror-finished accent furnishings and a peppering of colored throw pillows, this living room from Luxe Interiors + Design goes from plain to glam.
Wood tones warm up an all-white room, as made evident in this dining room by Monika Hibbs.
White has the bad rap of being sterile, but you can put that reputation to sleep by orchestrating the look with rich textures like this bedroom featured on Birmingham Home & Garden.
Definitely not a room for those with pets or little ones (or just any adult who's clumsy), but it sure is refreshing to look at from afar, isn't it? (Via Home Inspiration Ideas)
It's all about the exaggerated textures in this bedroom found on My Scandinavian Home.
White plaster and natural textiles come together in this bathroom from Mi Casa to create a spa-like experience.
Does white have this effect on you or do your eyes crave color?
