White tones and wooden textures are a match made in minimalist heaven!

Oftentimes, finding the right furniture, decor, and even appliances to fit into your home’s interior design can be an oddly specific undertaking. You may find yourself endlessly searching for pieces with detailed designs that exist in your mind, but don’t seem to be sitting on any store shelves you check—you almost wish you could build your furniture yourself! 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.

One home essential you may have overlooked while giving your space a makeover is that old, worn-out laundry basket sitting on your bathroom floor. If you’re looking to give your bathroom for a Zen feel, you’ll want to replace your old hamper with this chic basket from Domesticity, which features an off-white canvas liner on a handcrafted bamboo holder.
