Open up any home decor magazine and you are bound to see pages and pages devoted to white decor and design. Sparkling, crisp, clean white decor is having a serious thing right now. Maybe it’s because many of our tech devices are white, maybe it’s because life is complicated and a clean slate feels relaxing. You may think an all white home would be flat and boring, but it’s not.
The key is to incorporate different shades of white–ecru, stone, antique, pearl, eggshell, antique, linen, ivory and beige—just to name a few. Another key is to add plenty of texture too–chunky, lacy, matte, polished, embossed, shiny, distressed, metallic, woolen, ribbed, velvety and more. Don’t be afraid to go for a floor-to-ceiling white look with painted white floors and walls and all- white furniture and decor.
