Make a statement......
...with a stand-alone white scheme, use it as a feature colour or layer white with tonal neutrals to create depth and interest in a room.
White is the perfect foundation for colourful accents that can be updated easily and as often as you wish. Changing fabrics and accessories such as a cushion, art or a rug is a wonderful way to add warmth or reflect a mood or season.
Layer whites: team several shades together to create a more ‘decorated’ feel. Be sure to use tonal shades that work in harmony for added warmth and interest.
Strong white schemes give a contemporary feel whereas creamy, softer whites create a more classic look. Consider a ‘lived in’ look for a more practical approach to family living.
Use white to highlight decorative mouldings, architectural features and other details in a scheme. Just as white can be used to create a focal feature, it can also offer a blank canvas against which you can display statement works of art, furniture or furnishings. White makes colour pop!
