Wood and white is one of the most versatile interior design themes you’ll ever come across – majorly because there are always a number of ways that you can tweak it. Here’re some of the latest ways that you can emulate it in your homes:
1. Your material contrast
Many homeowners only use wood as the main material contrast in their wood and white themes, but what if you can use material contrast in whites? Take a look at this trendy media wall. The white exposed brick provides an interesting backdrop against the low-height media console and wooden floors. It’s a clever way to turn conventional practice upside down.
2. Balancing with neutral greys
Since wood and whites alone can feel a bit repetitive, you can use other coloUrs from the neutral palette (especially greys) to make your spaces stand out. This living room is a great example of this. While the walls and ceiling are all-white and the floor is all-wood, the grey couch and cushions play the mediating role in the perfect way.
3. Floating and low-height
Bedrooms are the perfect space to emulate your wood and white scheme, and this particular articulation is the perfect form of trendy. The wood textured half-back of the minimalist bed extends all the way to the end, balances a gorgeous floating nightstand, and merges with the same-textured floor. The rest of the ambiance – ceiling and walls – have been translated in simple whites for an airy contrast.
4. So, you’ve got a bar
Kitchen islands and bars double as dining areas these days, and if you’re dressing yours in wood and whites, then this one is going to be the perfect inspiration. Designed in a perfect rectangle, the top and sides of this island are done in sleek whites while the underbelly features a warm wooden contrast that pairs well with the stylish white chairs that are matched with it.
5. Inlay vs. mainstream
Wood textured kitchen laminates only work when you’re trying to emulate a warm ambiance in your homes. But if you’re going for sleek and contemporary, wood has to be used as an inlay material. This kitchen cabinet aesthetic is a perfect example of this technique. While the backsplash, countertops, and the cabinet laminates are all a stark white, the wood textured inlay on the sides and undercabinet’s provides awesome contrast to the whole setting.
