HOW TO DECORATE WITH WHITE
The colour of all colours. The most common, but the most capricious. Summer is the season when white triumphs in our clothing regime, and thankfully, it is kind of easy colour to wear. However, it is not that simple to decorate with white. Although it seems like an easy colour that suits in every interior, there are some DO’S and DONT’S when it comes to decorating with white. Read my post and learn some new tips that will inspire you to get the best out of ivory, champagne or eggshell white! And, yes, there is no such thing as “white white”.
HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT “WHITE”
As I mentioned above, there is no such thing as “just white” colour. It stretches in so many undertones and shades, that it’s impossible to know them all. Even the slightest halftone or reflection can make a big difference, so it’s important to know what you’re getting in. When picking the right white consider aspects of lighting, as well as keep in mind the final atmosphere you want to create. For example, if you decorate your bedroom with white, choose warmer tones over the cool, frosty ones. But if you love minimal style and aim for super contemporary design, cooler tones will work in your favour.
WHITE ON WHITE
Only one rule here – work with textures, undertones and detailing. All white room can be incredibly welcoming and cosy, but use the most contrasting textures you can imagine. Rough, knitted fabrics with smooth silk. Soft leather with textured pillows. Be creative, mix and match and, the most important thing – don’t be afraid to combine the most contrasting textures. You can also play with colour and use 3 or more different shades of white in one room. It will look way more elegant and tasteful!
ARTWORK ON WHITE
White walls. It is a classic, but also an area which has to be managed carefully. If you choose to leave your walls plain white, be very specific with the decorations you use. White walls are perfect for displaying your favourite art pieces, as everything will look more contrasting and bold than displayed on other colours. I love how minimal framed artwork stands out on white background – classic approach to minimal design.
WALK – IN CLOSET
White is the colour most associated with cleanliness and is also known to help us organise and concentrate. One place where white can be very useful is office spaces, but for me, this one seem even more fitting – closet interiors. I love how white background makes our shoes and other accessories shine. A good reason and easy trick to keep a tidy and well organist closet!
Yes, it may not be a practical choice, and propably is a NO for all the kid, animal or red wine loving homes. But we can’t deny how incredibly chic and polished white sofa looks. If you do choose estethics over practicability, choose fabrics that are easy to clean and be sure to treat your sofa with special sprays, that help to keep the dirt of the deeper layers of the fabric.
Room that needs WHITE more than anything is bathroom. It’s also the one room that can be white from top to bottom. There is never too much of clean, fresh and shiny in bathroom design. If paired with shiny metallics and marble textures, the final look will be super polished and royal. Go for it!
