white on white ......

There are so many beautiful books published about a predominantly white interior. The look can be rustic, slick and contemporary, opulent or minimalist.  It also allows you to showcase anything you choose. 

It could be bookcases filled with books, artwork, flowers in a vase, baskets, gilt mirrors or picture frames, porcelain ..... patterned, cream or white, architectural detailing or warm timbers.

Everything else in the room will be in contrast or shadow against the crispness of the white.


My favourite shade of white has never altered.....Dulux White Birch.  It has enough warmth to give the room a certain glow.  For a very polished, state of the art interior I adore Dulux Vivid White !!!

An all white kitchen gives a feeling of orderliness and all white bathroom.....elegance and an all white bedroom......peacefulness.

Be bold.....floors can be cream or a light coloured carpet to complete the look. White painted timber floors can be both rustic or contemporary.....rather Scandinavian.

Don't stop with the fabrics......what could be more divine than cream, white or antique linen in varying textures.....have fun!
