Start the new year with a blank-slate by keeping home interiors crisp white and clean.
Put together a sleek and sophisticated look. Go for an all-white ensemble to make a refreshing statement. If you’re not quite ready for the full white-on-white, add soft neutrals or a touch of grey. Choose accessories in tan, nude or brown. Or be bold and opt for black and white! Whichever you choose, keep the colour palette simple.
Master the art of layering. Add wool over a crisp shirt. Throw on a slouchy over-sized cozy sweater. Think wool, cashmere and cable-knits. Upgrade your layers by adding a fur coat or a trench. If you are going to invest in one item, make it a tailored coat! Don’t forget the accessories. Grab a great pair of boots, your favourite statement bag and voila! Simple!
White on White
A rustic white scheme creates a stylish and serene retreat.
White can be a simple base for a calming bedroom design. Try incorporating several textures and subtle tones. The panelled wall in this bedroom adds natural wood textures and the simple white linen soften the look preventing the look from feeling stark. An all-white bedroom can be surprisingly easy to achieve.
Use mirrors and reflective surfaces to bounce the light back into the room. Keep the finishing details pristine and pay attention to details. For a vintage feel try adding old to new, a rustic chair or a shabby mirror.
Heavy textures such as woolen throws and rugs will add warmth and light textures such as silks and voile’s will add a romantic feel. Layer textures, add cushions and statement pieces. white doesn’t have to mean boring!
Personally, i love the idea that a bedroom is a place to escape without distraction – A peaceful haven.
