I love the look of all white …white wall color, drapes, furniture - everything clean, crisp and white! Do you love that fresh and versatile look too? White is the perfect color choice for any room – chic, romantic and simply clean. A white color scheme flawlessly adds drama, opens up a room to light and soft hues, adds the feel of romance to a bedroom and adds freshness and airiness to update a space.
White rooms when done right are stunning. A designer’s blank canvas. The absence of color draws your eye to the architectural details of the space. While adding pops of complimentary accent colors emphasize the whiteness of the room; different textures, shades and artwork give the space depth. White on white is gorgeous, but if you feel you need just a touch of color to give that space zing - try these additions. I love using black pillows on white sofas, a dark headboard with white-on-white bed linens, and a maple table in a beautiful white kitchen to create a sophisticated focal point.
Feel free to experiment and layer your whites. Look closely when picking your white color palette. There are warm whites (these have undertones of yellow or red) and cool whites (with undertones of grey, blue or black). Warm whites are inviting and give a warm cozy feel to a room, whereas cool whites are crisp and sleek giving a clean and modern appearance.
There is nothing more beautiful than a white-on-white bedroom that echoes serenity and calls to you. The crisp white linens lure you in as different white textures throughout the space (satin, lacquer and fur) add softness and a light airy feel. I love the way a wood floor adds warmth, accents and pulls together a pure white room.
There is nothing more smart looking than a white kitchen. White brings a kitchen to life, gives a spacious feel and quickly provides an updated look. The kitchen is the heart of the home – cooking and food preparation, family socializing, casual entertaining and sometimes where kids do homework. So, it’s important to get it right when designing an all-white kitchen with multi-function spaces, lighting and space planning for all these activities.
White Kitchens benefit from a healthy dose of chrome, steel and an accent color. Notice how the red apples pop and the green flowers stand out. This is something that can change seasonally. The cool metal and chrome can best be achieved with lighting or appliances. Dark wood floors make the white cabinets pop more and help achieve a balance for the eyes.
I personally love it when the combinations of white materials are fused to create the perfect white room. The marrying of elements can be stunning. White takes center stage in this streamlined dining room. Simple elegance is often achieved with less rather than more. By incorporating a long white table, sleek modern art chairs, vintage painted furniture and a crystal chandelier on a white tile floor, it takes the love of white to a new level.
White for the outdoors! Have you gone bonkers? Believe it or not - white seating gives your
