Wow it’s white!

by Patti Boker Elkon on December 14, 2010

White is one of those amazing non-color colors.  The undertones that can be found in white are many. I woke up this morning to find the ground covered in a blanket of white snow.  With this inspirational palette the skys the limit!

Yellow pops when paired with white, and it makes for good safety in a blizzard.  Room inspirations abound in white.  Choosing the perfect white for your purposes is a challenge.  Finding inspiration can help you make the decision on which white is right for you.

An all white kitchen is georgeous but a lot of work to keep clean.  Consider mixing materials in the neutral family to make life easier.  Adding a touch of real wood or even feaux can help break up the theme.

White never goes out of style.

Most of the furniture in my appartment is white! Recently I was thinking about how to add new elements without messing the whole thing up! Great post!

I think the mixture of white with some nice hardwood is an excellent blend of color especially if you choose to have less carpeting in the home.

Joseph,

Yes, white goes well with many materials, and wood is one of my all time favorites. It reflects a clean, architecturally modern atmosphere that always looks “chic’. You can also try adding texture with ceramics. This is another “no fail’ material that adds character to a room that needs “a little something” to make it pop.
