Light, bright and airy… Blonde (wood) really does have more fun! And, as a bonus, it doesn’t have to figure out how to work around dark roots during a quarantine.

And creates a spectacular neutral background.


On the ceiling it shines,


And looks so stunning juxtaposed with dark floors,

Blonde wood is also stunning against stone,

And plays well with other woods, stones and finishes.

Things We Love: Blonde Wood in Every Room

We don’t know if it’s true that blondes have more fun. (Although, as a lifelong blonde, I could made a strong case for it!) But we’re pretty sure, if these gorgeous homes are any indication, that blonde wood make a house more fun. We’ve never seen anything quite like these blonde wood pendants! They are incredible and blend so well with the bar stools. Can we talk about these vases too? All we know is that we want them!

Hardwoods are obviously a perfect choice for kitchen style. We love them in a variety of shades, but we think a lighter flooring choice feels casual and fun. What do you think?
