Decorating with white

Feel like a bit of Winter White Decorating? It may be freezing out there, but that doesn’t mean your decorating has to be dark and moody to suit the cold weather. What about these photos below to inspire you by using whites to warm up your space? White rooms are becoming very popular and aren’t just reserved for the minimalist decorator. By using different tones and textures you can still have a white room which isn’t clinical.

I don’t know which is my favourite room. I love them all! Those bedrooms are so cozy and inviting.

TIPS:

  • Pick a soft wall colour if all white is too much for you. A sage green, grey, muted blue would work.
  • Use wood elements to soften the space.
  • Choose neutral tones in the cushions, throws. Still base it around white, but pick maybe a cream, beige or light grey throw.
  • Use soft flowing fabrics like curtains or rugs on the floor.
  • Add a touch of metal or concrete to bring in an earthy feel.
  • Mix in some fresh green plants or cuttings.
  • Pick subtle patterns and stay away from bright colours or overwhelming shapes.
  • Use a mix of cream, white and ivory and you can’t go wrong.

Are you a lover of white?
