White with Natural Textures

I love the combination of white, wood and natural textures - particularly for a beach house although they would work equally well in a country style cottage. I love rustic timbers in their natural state but I'm also a fan of timber that's painted white, chalked or limewashed - I think it adds character and personality to a space. The Scandinavians do this so well. Fill a beach house with lots of natural light, straw baskets, cane and rattan furniture and sisal flooring and you are bound to have a winning success!

You're so right about this combo working in either seaside or country locations. It's a timeless look, really simple and beautiful xo

I love this post! Especially those baskets in the first image. I love the simplicity of white on white spaces with a bit of texture from rustic elements!
