White is a great “go to” color for a minimalistic look in the home.
It’s the best neutral to use in decorating because it’s versatile and matches everything.
But what happens when white takes over the entire home without a splash of color?
Well, surprising enough, while browsing through Design to Inspire I found a home exactly like that.

Located in Queensland, Australia, this home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a whole lot of white. In fact, it’s decorated floor to ceiling in white and has very few accent colors. I mean, even the accent colors are neutrals, too.
And the real estate listing even describes the interior as:
Sparkling white interiors and high ceilings are a breath of fresh air while abundant use of glass creates a light and airy floor plan that moves from room to room with ease.
“I’ve heard of monochrome but this is more like monotonous.”
So I kept going back in forth, “Is this home minimalistic or monotonous?”
Part of me agrees with the listing, the white interiors does make everything feel fresh and airy. I also love high ceilings and the way white brightens up a room. So in that respect, I do like this set up. But these are only pictures. For some reason I think seeing this place in person would be vastly different. I’m wondering if all this white would be too bright and harsh on the eyes after a while.
This place could probably use a splash of color for that element of surprise. Any bold color would really stand out beautifully in this home. What do you think? Is this home beautiful or are the white interiors too bright? Does this inspire you to decorate your home more like this or does this design fall flat?
