that’s exciting and inviting

White is one of the most classic and sought after interior looks. It’s discreet and doesn’t demand attention from the eye. It’s neither distracting nor offensive, it’s calming and inviting and at the same time it’s stylishly powerful.

There is something wonderfully uplifting about an all-white living area. However there is a danger that white-on-white can become bland and uninteresting. Here we show you how to use a range of shapes, tones and textures to add depth and interest to a room.

Tonal white

There are many different tones of white and not all of them work perfectly together. To ensure a tonal effect choose a base shade and never go more than three shades darker or lighter.

Make it romantic

To avoid a clinical look it’s essential that an all-white room flows and has sense of freedom. For a softer, romantic look try Voile curtains; their delicate folds of translucent woven fabric provide a gorgeous glow at the window and they offer a practical solution to privacy during the daytime too.

Effortless and powerful

A white décor is a fantastic way make a statement and to enhance bold features. White roller blinds are simple and stylish and won’t detract from the key features within a room. The compact design of a Roller blind means it takes up minimal room when pulled down, perfect for a living room window sill.

Tactile textures

For an indulgent and elegant look, think about introducing touchable fabrics, these embroidered curtains and simple black blind add an inviting, luxurious feel while keeping a clean, fresh look. For a less dramatic look try rich creams in a heavy fabric.
