The pristine all-white room can cater to a range of styles. It can be crisp, sleek and modern or achingly romantic. And though it may seem like an easy look to put together, in most white rooms, it can be deceptively difficult to achieve visual interest.
With the lack of colour, fill in the gap by focusing on different textures. Rugs or throws with rough surfaces, white-washed furniture, and disparate surfaces all add dimension to a room.
Also important is the choice of white. Cool whites with their grey and blue undertones are best suited for a crisp, modern look with minimum clutter and strong, graphic silhouettes.
Warm whites, with yellow, peach or beige tones, are best for romantic interiors. Natural elements such as distressed wood, marble or stone surfaces, and cotton rugs can accentuate this look.
