White with Tan Interiors

Lately I’ve been drawn to rooms that are mainly white with tan. There’s something very calming about the combination that has me intrigued. I also love when there’s a hint of a third colour in the mix, especially; green, blue, orange or coral. Here’s a round up of white with tan interiors… enjoy!

We often see white with tan and a hint of blue or green in beach-inspired spaces so I tried to keep this round up away from the water.

I love these neutral tones. They make a room look so bright & airy.
Great inspiration photos!

Hi I am new to your blog and totally smitten! You have really great taste and style! Becoming a follower so I can pop back often xoxo!
When you are using white with tan for interiors its better to make the upholsteries a bit bright. Otherwise it can provide a bland look to the room.

I recently did a post on ALL_WHITE interiors - I can relate to liking a space with a soft palette and neutral finishes. Love these images, Wendy.

I'm a huge fan of white interiors. Mixing in tan brings an element of warmth and makes the space livable and comfortable. Great job!

*** This is my first time here, and I am smitten with what you shared! I'll be doing more backreading later!!!

Annnnnd, I was pleasantly SHOCKED to see the THIRD PIC with the round mirror (w/ lead "dividers") over the fireplace, as I have had THAT MIRROR since the mid 70's~~~ "YESSIREEBOB"!!!!!!!!! Mine was signed by the "artist" that made it (it weighs a TON!) and I've had it in the storage garage for about 6 years now, & I'd sort of "forgotten" about it... It looks soooo fab in that third pic that I am going to ask my sweetie to get it out of our storage garage for me!!! Nowwww, to FIND a PLACE for it...

Thank you!
