White decor with lots more white and more white tends to create a washed-out, depth-free, cold and emotionless space, unless, of course, you get personal and crafty. Using the clean, eye-opening, mind-focusing power of white to its best (and most texture- filled and tonal) advantage can create impressive, spacious, dreamy rooms. Let’s look at white, done right…!
Above, many textures and tones avoid deep contrast and help preserve the clarity of a whited out space while filling it with warmth. Black and white photography in white spaces can not be beat, especially when the images are less stark, more sensuous and filled with shades of gray.
Some wood with white keeps things from getting too “mental” and makes a room more physically approachable.
While I’m not a big proponent of the “all-white” bedroom, here the gossamer canopy is mindbogglingly brilliant and easy to create, while the pastels add a neutral warmth to this ideal summer resort bedroom.
With very white spaces, keep an eye on texture to be sure that you don’t create a chilly, heartless space that gives awesome minimalism a bad name. You don’t need lots of color or deep contrast in a room if it’s minimalism you crave… as long as you can evoke texture, emotion and material goodness in that room. White done right.
