At a time when interior decorating trends tend to be filled with bright, mismatched colours and loud prints, a white colour scheme can come as a welcome change. As well as helping rooms look bigger, lighter and more airy, white can create a clean, calming atmosphere.
Despite this, white is a colour that is often difficult to decorate with and it can be easy to end up with a bland space that lacks personality. In this article, Good Homes shows us exactly how to decorate with white to create a stylish, subtle and sophisticated scheme.
If you think you can’t create a cosy, yet tasteful, atmosphere when decorating with white, then think again. This article provides easy-to-follow tips such as opting for an off-white paint, as opposed to a brighter shade, to avoid creating a cold atmosphere. Good Homes also explains just how to add warmth to a white scheme, with rustic elements and subtle pops of colour. To ensure that you steer clear of a clinical appearance, this article highlights the importance of utilising a combination of different textures and patterns, such as layering matte cabinets, marble worktops and assorted tiles in a kitchen, to provide depth and character to a room.
So, if you want to incorporate neutral colours into your home but aren’t sure where to start, make sure you check out this article which proves that white definitely doesn’t have to be plain!
