For many years, grey has been a popular colour choice for interior design. From paint to furniture to decor items, it seemed like everyone was embracing this versatile neutral shade. However, recently there has been a shift towards a lighter and brighter colour palette, and the many shades of white are now taking center stage.
Why the change? There are a few reasons. First, white is a timeless and classic colour that never goes out of style. It can make a space feel clean, bright, and airy, and it pairs well with almost any other colour. Second, with the rise of minimalist and Scandinavian-inspired design, white has become a popular choice for creating a simple and serene space. And third, white can actually be quite versatile, with many different shades and undertones to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
So what are some of the many shades of white that are in? There’s pure white, which is a crisp and bright shade that’s perfect for creating a modern and minimalist look. Then there’s off-white, which has a warm and creamy undertone that can make a space feel cozy and inviting. There’s also ivory, which has a slightly yellow undertone and can add a touch of warmth and sophistication to a room. And let’s not forget about the many shades of white with grey or beige undertones, which can add tons of depth and dimension to a space.
Of course, there are a few things to keep in mind when using white in your home. First, it can be a bit tricky to choose the correct shade, since different whites can look different depending on the lighting and other colours in the room. Second, white can show dirt and stains more easily than darker colours, so keeping your space clean and tidy with storage options is important. And finally, while white can be a great choice for creating a serene and peaceful space, it’s important to add some texture and interest to prevent it from feeling too sterile or boring by layering blankets, adding different tons of whites, and incorporating any accent colours or elements, like wood or metals, that are included in your design.
Overall, if you’re looking to update your home’s colour palette, consider embracing the many shades of white. From pure white to warm ivory to cool grey-tinged whites, there’s a shade for every style and taste. And with its timeless appeal and versatility, white is sure to be in style for years to come. So why not lean away from greys and start incorporating some shades of white into your next home design project?
