Winter has come and now is the time to assess the merits of a cool winter interior. White is an amazingly versatile colour, believe it or not. The number of white paint colours on the market is legion.
Farrow and Ball are the market leaders in shading up and down white neutrals.
A clean, pale background can be made more interesting by combining these white tones.
Let’s take Wimborne White from Farrow and Ball for your wall colour; use this in relief with their Shadow White on the ceiling and All White on woodwork. Here you will create a smooth serene palette against which cream, linen and faux fur fabrics will add texture and pattern.
Dulux Heritage also have a good selection of white shades to use together to layer a clear basis for an interior revamp.
Good tones that blend together are Marble White, Panel White and White Cotton. These colours work equally well in both a traditional and modern setting.
A silver or pale grey wallpaper would compliment these whites. Look at Rebeschi.
Wallpaper by Designers Guild or Nouvole by Cole and Son. Both these wallpapers have a graphic black element which will sharpen the white in your room and add interest. Silver birches on the Cole and son wallpaper woods and pears also add graphic interest to a simple white design .
The oh so cool look of a frosty day in interior terms is both elegant and stylish .
