If you’ve ever wanted to do your interior designs in clear, sophisticated whites, but have always wondered how you’ll make them look interesting, then you’re at the right place. White is one of those all-encompassing hues that’s always there in an interior design without fail, but rarely as a dominant color. In fact, most people don’t even know that it has its very own wide array of shades including pearl, linen, frost, powder, ivory and even egg-shell white. So today, we’ll be taking a look at how you can have some fun with whites in your home interiors!
1. As a dominant color
When you’re using white as a dominant color, you’ll have to complement it with beautiful accents. While white can make any color look pretty attractive, you must definitely opt for the darker hues to create beautiful accents. The black tiles, wood furniture and gold lighting in this image is an excellent example of how to do this!
2. Make it pop
White is generally used as a background color, but when you are using it as your dominant color scheme, you need to make it pop. This can be done through using it quite extensively throughout your space. You can emulate it not only in your walls, but also in your floors, ceilings and even door designs so that it pops out.
Using simple geometry is the best way you can make your dominantly white interior designs look interesting. If you find this technique intriguing, then here are a few ways you can go about it: you can create customized grooves and patterns in your laminates, go for a bed cover with abstract patterns, have a statement art piece that features attractive geometric patterns and more.
4. Using accessorizing
Accessorizing and careful embellishment is a great way to make your white interior designs pop with some much-needed contrast. You don’t even have to go out of your way to curate things. You can simply used everyday items in your home to accessorize the whites throughout the space.
5. Using texture
Another great way to have a little fun with your whites is by emulating some awesome textures in your design. White-on-white tiles, along with white-on-grey accessories and fixtures can make any dominantly white interior seem positively stunnig!
