In case your home improvement shopping list is filled with decor and essentials decked out in a mix of soft white tones and wooden details, we’re here to make the limited search a little easier. Yup, the aesthetic category in question is pretty on the nose, but if that’s what you want in your dream home, then you deserve to find it. Below, we round up chic white appliances, decor pieces, home essentials, and more with rustic wooden accents contrasting against the pristine ivory.

These wooden home decor pieces featuring white designs and details are perfect for your minimalist space:

Planit Home Espresso Maker (P20,710) from La Table de Zorba 


In our never-ending search for more and more aesthetic finds to add to our online shopping carts, we came across the gorgeous Planit Home Espresso Maker from online store La Table de Zorba. We spotted the device on a Facebook post from a local blogger known as Lois Cozy Life. This chic coffee maker comes straight from South Korea and fittingly, it sports the kind of soft, minimalist design commonly associated with Korean-style interior design. The IG-worthy device features a pristine white exterior with light wooden accents. It’s perfect for kitchen counters or coffee nooks filled with sleek appliances and decked out in delicate, neutral tones. Plus, it’s a huge step up from the usual drip coffee makers most people have at home and naturally, the espresso it makes is much closer to the strong, aromatic brews you can get at your go-to café.
