Some love white for its purity; others think it is the depiction of chic. We have taken a liking for the all-white décor trend.
White works in every setting and with the style of any period. However, as pristine and simple as it might look, this décor trend isn’t easy to master. Don’t believe me? Take a look around your room right now. What will it take to turn it into an all-white setting? That’s right — a lot!
This deceivingly uncomplicated look requires a great amount of planning. The first step is to comb your home for all things white. You’ll be surprised by what you will find.
The next step is to sort your findings to see what can be used and, more importantly, where it can be placed. This will give you an idea of what you will need to complete the look. Don’t put on your shopping shoes just yet.
Take a closer look at the room. There might be some elements in the area that could use a quick fix — simply paint it white! Spend a weekend whitewashing the walls; give old wooden furniture a makeover.
When all’s done, it’s easier to spot the not. If you’ve set aside a budget, then invest in a white sofa and other accessories to place around the home. Remember, it’s only difficult when you’re transforming a currently occupied room, because this involves stashing away bright colours and displaying everything white. The snowstorm effect is much easier to create if you’re starting from scratch.
Whether it’s shabby chic, modern and minimalist, a blend of old and new, or classic and vintage, this is one décor trend where the only rules are the ones you establish. It’s perfect to bring the illusion of space in smaller rooms and it offers cohesion to larger spaces. So as long as the dominant hue is white, there’s no wrong move!
