yesterday i blogged all about colorful spaces and today — well, today we’re embracing the subtlety serene power of white. i’m fickle that way. but that’s the fun of design, isn’t it? there are just so many ways to decorate and it’s all so subjective anyway — one person’s bold color is another person’s casual neutrals. many of you also asked me about my own white sofa on instagram yesterday, so i’m here to share how it can work for you, too. my white sectional sofa (just below) is slip covered, for one — so if it gets dirty it can easily be tossed into the washer & dryer. and i live with a dog, a messy one, so trust me, it’s very doable. and honestly, the more these slipcovers are washed the softer they get. also, white is a great canvas to start with. commit to a well-made white sofa and build from there — adding and swapping out throws and pillows seasonally. it’s super easy to change up your living room personality by season if you start with a neutral base.

  1. Victoria, love your slipcovers. I am shopping for a new sectional with slipcovers. I ordered some fabric swatches but some are dry clean only. I want machine washable. Are yours cotton? Linen?

  2. The array of white is pure and clean and I am sure a lot of people would enjoy it. Your display really shows much thought and all looks great. The few places you added a little of color I really liked the most.
