The Wonder of White!

We might be growing tired of the snow and ice outside, but inside we can’t get enough of the warmth of winter white! Want to know why?

White is Versatile. White goes with everything, in any room, and we love that! Start with white walls or white furniture (or both), and you have the perfect blank canvas with endless possibilities. Pair whites with other whites and neutrals for a light and airy feel. Combining various whites adds warmth and interest to the room. Or you can integrate rich, dark woods and dramatic graphic prints into your white room for high impact. 

White is Warm.You can create wonderful warmth in your shades-of-white room. Add in nubby fabric, crunchy sisal, woven rattan, warm wood accent pieces, and watch your room come alive. At Vintage Home, right now, you'll find woven snowshoes, terrific baskets, sleek bottles and chippy benches...the perfect accompaniments to white pieces!


White adds Drama. If you prefer a darker color palette, adding a single white element to your room is a eye-catching and intense, giving the entire room a pop of freshness. This new arrival dog statue is the perfect "Hollywood Regency" accent piece.
