WHITEWASHED

A few days ago I saw this gorgeous monochromatic photo display. Not only do I love the whitewashed beach illustrations in the frames... I love the ivory-cream mattings paired with the bright white frames against the white wall...


But then today I saw this similar but oh-so-different take on the same color palette...


I love the visual interest that these frames all in the same color family create without being too apparent.
What do you think? Too monochromatic for you, or just the right amount of diversion from white?

oooo love the second photo. the gold frames pop, and seperate the white more so than having white frames. I love how the gold frames mimic the gold light fixture and door hardware.

Very neat idea- keeping the frames the same color as the wall paint puts an increased focus on the images. Love!

I love white on white and want to do an entire white on white scheme in our guest bedroom. Just have to wait for our extension to be built first as that guest bedroom is currently our living room!
