A Bright White Family Home

Winter is still a few months away, but there is nothing quite like replicating that exquisite winter white glow in your own Kansas City home. As lovely as a beautiful white family home sounds, many parents think it’s impossible when you have children. However, as an interior designer, I know that it’s a common misconception among many couples raising families today. You can have a beautiful home that resembles the crystalline snow cover of a winter wonderland, you simply have to use sensible fabrics and surfaces that are easily wiped clean.

Take a look at this beautiful family home from Traditional Home that features a lovely bright white color scheme that all can enjoy.

 A bounty of natural light warms this formal intimate and elegant living room that features “silk velvet sofas, Louis XVI chairs, armchairs upholstered in embroidered silk, and antique tables with new wooden tops”.

The family-friendly leather chairs are great for the kitchen table and breakfast area, so no matter where the kids eat, cleanup will be quick and easy. The vintage French posters that decorate the walls add a nice pop of color to the contemporary dining space.

 In the family room, where the children love to hang out, the mix of chocolate browns are textural and allow the room not to feel as white as it really is.
