Why using pure white is so tempting in decoration?

white and cool

White is pure, white is love. The concept of white is strong enough to clean our soul and gives an energy to restart as white, clean page is the messenger of good things to come in the future.

Besides all the psychological identity lets talk about its great power in interiors.  White is in fact not a color but light itself. It combines all wavelengths of colors and it is a great helper to create visually appealing decorative style. White opens up the smallest spaces, provides air and freshness. It does  not only create an illusion of a larger space but also unifies the decoration around it.

Eventhough, white is simple it provides endless options to create perfect background for most stylish spaces. All shades of white looks great in any style whether it is traditional, modern or in between. White is a perfect backdrop to enhance the texture and finishes such as wood, concrete and metal surfaces. It is purely beautiful that may never possibly goes out of fashion.

White changes its tone during the day time according to the wavelength of the light. Shadows becomes colors. It is in fact rather right to call it light instead of a color. It magnifies curves and forms, provides a sculptural feeling to objects placed on it.

Layering materials and elements on white provides an incredible sophisticated depth in decoration. Since the textile technology has improved so much in recent years there are solutions to keep the bright white clean. It is also one of the major reason why white interior elements and complements became so popular these days.  Both summer and winter homes look great in white decor. From Coastal  to Scandinavian homes it perfectly matches with its surrounding and create an individual style. white on white

The biggest advantage of white is its versatility of its shades. Some whites carry warmer, creamy tones; they reflect more casual and traditional style in interiors while slightly blue cold shades give more crispy and modern look. Today it is very much in trend to color traditional ethnic design elements in white.  This provides a fresh and clean look while adding a fresh modern style.

To experiment with different shades of white on different materials, finishes and surfaces could be real fun. I can’ t think of any space or style which could go out of fashion using white.

  3. I simply love this idea. I’ve seen something like this before but your samples are very inspiring. But this requires a lot of natural light to emphasize texture from the background.
