When Homepolish designer Annouchka Engel and her family moved cross-country from New York to San Francisco, she wanted more than just a figurative fresh start—the clean slate needed to come to life through the design of her 1876 Victorian townhouse. We say she nailed it.

Much like her boho bathroom, Haley’s breakfast nook is sweet and simple. Woven accents and patterned pillows add a subtle touch to the rest of the whited-out space.

We love white on its own, but sometimes it needs a pal, a foil if you will. It’s very best friend—black. Homepolish designer Natalie Chianese seems to agree, seeing as she paired this New Jersey family’s stunning kitchen with the occasional midnight pop.

Modernist spaces leap to mind when you think “all white” but the effect can feel perfectly traditional too. Take for example this boldly romantic boudoir from Katherine Carter filled with touchable textures, graceful lines, and rich shades of white and cream.

This designer’s casita might be located in the leafy green city of Dallas, Texas, but the space itself sung with white more than any other shade. With cozy cream-hued shabby-chic linens and whiter-than-white paint tones atop charming shiplap, Homepolish designer Paige Morse brought a little piece of heaven down south.

Just because a bedroom is white doesn’t mean it needs to be an empty box. Homepolish designer Caroline Wolf accented a laid-back, mellow Los Angeles bedroom for clients Grasie and Damien Mercedes with nothing more than some bright linens, an energizing plant here or there, and a standalone piece of art. The rest of the space is filled with a cheerful, happy white.

White does wonders for making a space feel larger, something Crystal Sinclair knew very well. A glossy white table (that just happens to collapse into the wall when necessary), crisp dining chairs, and minimally-colored accents, turn this mini-dining room into a room breakfast nook.

When two parents (who just happened to be lawyers, too) found themselves in need of a quiet place to go home to after another mile-a-minute NYC day, Homepolish designer Emma Beryl knew that a neutral space would be the perfect fit. Emma came to the rescue with luxurious marble, fine faux furs, and a shade of white that showed off the space’s huge windows and flooding light.

In keeping with the rest of this Brooklyn loft’s industrial feel, Homepolish designer Jae Joo utilized white subway tile paired with black grout to pay homage to the space’s city roots.  Minimal, strategic shelving against whited-out walls make the small space appear larger to the eye.

It might be hard to believe that a family of five can keep a home this spotless, but their choice to opt for an-all white kitchen had us second-guessing our assumptions. White cabinets, white wall paint, and white porcelain set the stage for the gray-and-white marble to shine—literally.

Artist Aniella Matejovsky and her husband Tobias needed a clean-cut background that would allow them to create and entertain, so Homepolish designer Tali Roth gave them a soft, neutral space to do just that with soft, creamy linen, white marble, and neutral art (made by Aniella herself!).
