A splash of white can lift a home, refreshing and rejuvenating spaces after the cold Winter months. Here are 10 ways you can work white into any interior design styles.
SLEEK WHITE BED LINEN
Nothing makes a bed look more luxurious than thick, crisp white bed sheets. Beautifully white duvets and pillows ooze an essence of hotel luxury, and they work with almost all interior design styles. You can pair them with metallic shades or add a pop of colour for Spring.
WHITE BATHROOM ACCESSORIES
White is the go-to for a clean and fresh looking bathroom so weave in thick white towels and mats, white bathroom accessories or even a few stems of white flowers on a windowsill.
PAIR WITH PRETTY FLORALS
Nothing shouts Spring more than pretty floral designs, and they can be worked into most interior design styles either as small accents or larger focal points.
WHITE ON WHITE
When carefully coordinated, all-white spaces ooze calm and tranquility. Be purposeful and deliberate in using contrasting shades from creams and beiges to greys and ivories.
White and gold is a classic, timeless look that will work across seasons. Add small decorative accessories such as gold bowls, or larger statement pieces, such as a gold-framed table. Here are some ideas.
WARM WHITES WITH WOOD
Whites work wonderfully with all shades and styles of wood, perfectly offsetting their deep rich tones. Use white paired with wood as a canvas and then weave in accessories and furniture that match your interior design style whether it be rustic, modern or Scandi.
ENHANCE WELLBEING WITH DUSTY PINK & BLUE
Pantone’s colours of the year are Rose Quartz and Serenity, or dusty pink and blue. These colours balance warmth with tranquility to create a soothing sense of calm designed to enhance wellbeing and offset modern day stresses. These pretty pastels also pair beautifully with white to create a soft, gentle, elegant feel.
WHITE STRIPES FOR BEACH CHIC
Whether you live by the seaside or not, most of us adore the fresh, rejuvenating coastal look. There’s something about it that brings a smile to the face and nothing sings of long, Summer days more. Accessorising with white stripes paired with blues and reds is an easy way to add a splash of nautical to your spaces.
ADD CHARACTER WITH ETHNIC ACCENTS
White is a great canvas for weaving in the intricate and ornate patterns of Eastern designs. The rich colours and elaborate designs of ethnic and Eastern homeware are perfectly showcased against a white backdrop.
HAVE FUN WITH BOLDS & BRIGHTS
Many of us are afraid of adding too much colour to our spaces, so if you’re keen to dip your toes in we suggest starting with a white backdrop. This will afford you the flexibility to have a play around and see what works and what doesn’t.
