A Palette Of White Walls And Warm Wood Keeps This Interior Bright

A modern white and wood home interior.

Chicago-based practice Kwong Von Glinow, has designed a house bordering an alleyway on a traditional Chicago lot where the bright white interior with wood accents caught our attention.

Stepping inside, we see there’s a curved double-height hallway that runs lengthwise from the front to the back door.
