Like snow on a country lane, white blankets a room in serenity, hushing the hum of a homebound household, inviting contemplation. "Settle in and dream," a white room says. Remember the promise of January: Start anew.
There are a flurry of ways to transform an interior landscape with white and its many tones. You can reupholster an old wing chair in buttery chenille or add a coffee table with carving as lacy as a snowflake. Or you can settle for simple transformations like an ottoman slipcovered in sepia tones and an assortment of white accessories: a creamy cableknit throw, pillows in chenille, velvet, and wool.Right: Wreath, Charlotte Design.
