The wood and white aesthetic may be common, but it is also iconic. It has an inherent classiness and sophistication that is seldom ever found in any other combination. But did you know that it could also come off as bright and cheerful? This material/colour/texture combination is light as air, and has the ability to emulate a very uplifting look within the space. Let’s take a look at a few homes that have gotten it right:
1. Even with no windows
The first impression of this particular kitchen interior design is very bright and welcoming. If you take a look around, you’ll see that there is no direct window in the space to enhance this effect, so how can it still look so welcoming? It’s because the white and wood combo has been used to the right effect. The reflective qualities of the white cabinets nicely couple with the wooden floors, countertops and backsplash to evoke a cozy yet cheerful effect.
2. With natural effects
The interior design of this study room is quite understated in its entirety, but it also comes off as very unique and attractive. This is largely because of the great use of white and wood textures throughout the space. But more than that, it’s the creative use of natural light that adds so much more dynamic to the whole aesthetic. It makes the room end up looking larger and spacious than it really is.
3. Minimal but effective
The best thing about the white and wood aesthetic is that it allows you to be minimal yet impactful at the same time. Take the example of this bedroom; it’s already spacious as is, but with the creative blend of white walls and everything else in light wood, the whole ambiance is uplifted twofold.
4. Classy under gold
Up until now, we’ve only discussed how white and wood interiors seem brighter under natural light, but now we’ll look at how they’re effected by warm artificial lighting. The answer is that they look even more beautiful. Wooden textures look absolutely stunning under warm lighting. Coupled with trendy fixtures and furniture, they could end up looking more beautiful than ever.
5. Experimenting with shades
There isn’t exactly a set shade of white or wood that absolutely has to be combined to give an uplifting effect. You can just experiment with different shades and hues until you come across something that is unique and cheerful at the same time. There’s a lot of leeway for you to be distinct and make a personal statement with this combo.
