I am a colour NUT but to me there is nothing quite so perfect as white. All colours look stunning against white - it's just a matter of knowing how to use it correctly.
I've found the key to avoid that stark, cold, minimalist look is really quite simple: Texture + Layers.
- Don't be afraid to have 2 or 3 textiles that are slightly different shades and textures of white - put them together and see what happens!
- It helps if you provide a touch of contrast with a highlight colour (whether bright, soft, or something natural like wood) that really sets the white off.
- Remember that "white" in the design world can refer to various different tones - creams, light neutrals, even very pale greys. Creams are warmer, while pure whites and greys are cooler. It depends what look you are going for.
Do you like decorating with whites?
