We are often drawn to white when we are seeking peace, tranquillity and time to reflect on life, so it is no wonder we are seeing so much of it around lately.
A white room restores your equilibrium and encourages us to open our minds to new ideas. An all-white room can, however, be cold, so be sure to add different shades and textures of white, such as wool, pearl, linen and bleached wood to create warmth and interest.
Furniture, objects and mouldings work well when painted in white because it makes them stand out. It’s also a favourite colour for skirtings, doors and ceilings.
