I visited a magnificent house recently that was done in an all white palette. I'm a huge fan of white, and love how they brought in other natural elements and textures to make it come alive. And although it's definitely over the top, I thought you might enjoy taking the tour just as much as I did:
I really admire the mixture of surfaces as well: pavers, tile, wood, rock, stucco. It all comes together so beautifully.
Although this landscape is obviously very lush, it's a good reminder at how lovely some greenery can be when added into your home environment. We can't all have lovely little ponds, yet, some simple pots of succulents would be a wonderful way to add serene and natural elements indoors.
I can't say enough about all of the textures here. This is another way to really take a home to a higher level of well thought out design. And textures can be introduced on any budget. Rocks, mosaics, foliage, wood, metals, etc.
Oh my, well that was a lovely little break from winter now wasn't it?
