Hi, I am Thom Filicia from Dress My Nest. I am here to answer some of your emails, and to dispel some design myths. Alrighty, so Jennifer from Columbus, Ohio writes - I love the color white, but I feel like I am living in a hospital.
Hello, of course, you will feel like you're living in a hospital. How can I make my place cozier while maintaining this clean and bright look? Jennifer, this is the deal. All white, every single thing white, is definitely going to come off as a little goo-goo. However, if you layer in textures and neutrals that bring life to this white and make you feel a little bit warmer, I think; a) You avoid having this typical situation that people go into with this white sort of scenario. If it starts to look like you are living inside of a refrigerator, you want to bring in some natural elements. You want to layer it a little bit of color, even if the colors are neutral, and it will start to come alive, and people will get the point that it is all white, and it is clean, but it will be warm and cozy. Just like you.
