Home Decorating 101: White Interior Design

An all-white colour scheme is a classic look and a popular choice when it comes to making an effortless statement. The neutral palette brings a simplistic and minimal taste to the overall aesthetic of the home. It is a clean slate that can be easily transformed into whatever you would like and can work well with a range of tones. In order to avoid falling into the trap of a white interior looking boring and bland, it’s important to understand what design works well to bring out the best of your place. We have provided a few home decorating tips on how to comfortably incorporate white interiors into your space and make sure it stands out.

The White Balance
To achieve the correct colours, try to establish which shades work well by exploring all the white tones and hues available. The use of a variation of whites can be through a combination of furnishings and artworks to make the ‘less is more’ approach come to life. However, avoid joining opposite ends of the spectrum as cool and warm whites tend to clash. The use of creamy and icy shades of white together can create an uneven look, drawing attention to the inconsistent colour tones that are spread around instead of the design.

Stick To A Theme
Consistency really is key in home decorating, particularly when it comes to following an all-white concept. The use of several materials and architectural elements when home decorating can ultimately become an eyesore, which is why following similar patterns for the whole room is advisable. For instance, having wooden or metallic-themed furniture can assist in adding more definition to a plain space. In addition, it is also helpful to keep in mind which areas would need extra protection from dirt and scuff marks when planning out the whole set-up. It goes without saying that it’s essential to keep all-white areas away from messes that arise when it comes to living with young children and pets. Although dirtying white-coloured settings can be inevitable, you can take extra precaution by including washable paint, slipcovers and rugs to keep it all intact.

Get Artsy
With your home decorating, following a white colour pattern does not necessarily mean that your artistic side has to take a back seat. Art pieces can take centre stage as they wouldn’t have to compete with multiple colours scattered on the surrounding walls and décor. White backdrops are also beneficial for showcasing your art as it produces a chic gallery setting for you and your guests to enjoy.

Different Textures
There are different kinds of furniture to incorporate when it comes to home decorating and enhancing a white interior. Cushions, curtains, woollen blankets or couches can add some warmth by making the space look comforting and inviting. Meanwhile, you can add a touch of greenery with some potted plants to include a natural layer to a white base. When it comes to styling, the different textures can mix well together without comprising the cohesive interior by opting for a loose and gentle feel.
