It’s long been determined from a design sense, that white has 2 distinct directions of style. Beach cottages along seaside towns have drawn inspiration from the “shabby chic” look of natural oyster linens and white seashells. From a completely different angle, white can also represent a clean and sterile contemporary environment found in urban lofts and big city high rises.
White is timeless, and can be used in ANY color scheme. To avoid changing the entire look and feel of your home, add white pieces here and there. Try a white coverlet, linen window treatment panels, or a cool sleek white Barcelona chair. Paint walls a classic white such as Benjamin Moore’s White Dove or Decorator’s White.
Most importantly, don’t be scared to take the plunge and go all white!
