The use of white in home interiors has become absolutely extensive. Home owners are finding the stark austerity and minimalistic aspects of this colour to be extremely attractive. This is why it has become a total hit in residential projects. So, if you want to introduce it in your homes but don’t have any great ideas, here are 5 ways to help you out:
1. Stark black contrast
Contrast is always key with white home interiors and although you can choose a number of interesting, vivacious colours, nothing makes a statement more than black. The starkness of black against white is really brilliant. However, you have to use it in moderation. Remember that the black parts are just the accents while the white parts are the main focus.
2. Thematic intervention
Another way to complement your white home interiors is by playing with the theme. Take this image as an example – it uses the wainscot-like panels on the walls as a contrasting design element that brings out the best of the white backdrop. Similarly, the tufting on the bed headboard also makes the white parts feel glamorous and unique.
3. Pattern intervention
There are a lot of ways that you can use patterns to highlight your white interior designs. You can customize the statement wall to feature asymmetric patterns. You can even personalize your wardrobe façade – just like the ones in this image. Similarly bed sheets, coverlets, and other forms of furniture (especially shelves) are all a great way to emulate patterns that are minimal but contrast with the white backdrop beautifully.
4. With creative lighting
White is a hue that is like a blank canvas, and you can take it to a whole new level of aesthetics by tweaking with the lights. Natural light can make it feel spacious and visually appealing while artificial lights – especially the decorative ones – can also help you make a bold statement against a while backdrop.
5. Using textures and materials
Did you know that there are several shades of white? And that each of them has its own charm? So whether you’re working with ivory, egg-shell, or frost white, you can use them with a lot of textures to make the surrounding space feel interesting.
