All-White Interior Design: Tips With Example Images To Help You Get It Right

Stylish white decor schemes aren’t as simple or easy to get right as some may think. Sure, a blank palette takes away the margin for error in terms of clashing colour but go too plain and you’re in danger of living inside of a bland box. There are actually quite a few white shades out there! Paint pots come labelled with curiosities like: Navajo White, Seed Pearl, Silver Lining and Whisper. Aside from the shades of white there are to explore (they can be pretty open to interpretation on a backlit screen), let’s delve into adding interest through furniture, accessories, bold accents and differing aesthetics.

Use texture, pattern and framing. This tv wall decor has a grey veined white marble backdrop. Wainscoting decorates the adjacent wall. Even though both walls are white, these small additions add lots of interest.

Change out just one or two white items. One white dining chair has been bumped for a black version in this black and white dining room. A black plant pot balances out the new recruit.

Season with black pepper. Not literally. But a white scheme is made more tasty with a peppering of small black accessories, like this crockery set and plant stand. Indoor plants add a sneaky snippet of green too.
