WHITE ON WHITE
Spring signals new a new season, new life! Fresh sprigs and shoots abound with a sense of renewed hope in the air. Echo this in your home with a crisp colour palette – white on white – and enjoy its clarifying and soul-soothing effects. While a monochrome application to interiors requires a considered approach, its benefits far outweigh the effort.
Start with the shell of the space you’d like to transform: the walls. Painting your walls white will immediately open the room and create a feeling of expanse. Match the so-called fifth wall, the ceiling, with the same shade for a heightening effect and cohesive feel.
Rather than creating contrast and depth with colour – textures and finishes achieve this. Look for interesting detailing in furniture and décor pieces alike: tufting on fabric upholstered sofas, pintuck bedding and jacquard pillows.
An all-white space is not only reserved for minimalists, but for those who prefer a more romantic look too! Layers of white bedding, finished with a faux fur throw keep the look clean – but cosy. A jute rug and house plants add further dimension, without upsetting the calm of a monochrome palette. As do metallic accents, which work well to quietly complement neutral shades.
