We like everything about white color in decor: its luminosity, timelessness, versatility, quality, and even its soft coldness. We have plenty of reasons to love him and here we leave you some.
1. WHY THE COLOR WHITE ALWAYS TRIUMPHS
White walls, white upholstery, white furniture … White is the perfect neutral wildcard. It is bright, combines with all colors and styles, and enlarges spaces. What more could you ask for? Yes, it is timeless, very versatile, and gives a clean feeling, which makes it perfect as a base for any decoration.
2. WHAT COLOR IS WHITE
The white color is, in reality, the absence of color but also the mixture of all colors. And that is precisely why it goes well with all shades, from the darkest to the lightest, with different effects.
3. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE COLOR WHITE
The color white is linked to terms like purity, order, innocence, and goodness. It is synonymous with peace, simplicity, and, of course, cleanliness. It is also known for generating feelings of calm, tranquility, peace, and relaxation. In Western culture, white is associated with angels and is seen as a good thing, but in Asia and Africa it is also the symbol of death that comes to seek a pure soul and in China, it is the color of mourning.
4. DISADVANTAGES OF THE COLOR WHITE
It seems that, with the white color, everything is good. Well, not everything! The truth is that white decoration can also be cold in spaces that are too large. It is also dirtier, or rather, it makes stains show better. And, for many people, it can be considered a boring color, although there is a solution. There are many shades of white that escape from total white and that provides a little more warmth.
5. HOW TO WARM UP THE COLOR WHITE
One of the problems with white is that it can be too aseptic, cold, and even boring. To raise the degrees, not only is it enough to choose a color palette that warms the environment but also to use the right materials to make it cozy.
6. TYPES OF WHITE
Off white, off white, antique white, silk white… How many types of white are there? As many as nuances has the light. Adding a few soft touches of red or yellow to the white will make it warmer. Whereas, if it is mixed with gray or blue tones, the result will be somewhat cooler. Of course, both options are perfect to add a more elegant and characterful imprint.
7. OFF WHITE, WALLS WITH WARMTH
One of the most used shades of all the variations of white is bone, due to its yellow undertones. For walls especially, but also upholstery and textiles. Its closeness to beige makes it as warm as this, although with the luminosity of the most pristine white. If you don’t dare with total white or the room is too white, opt for an off-white. As has been done in this room. An off-white has been chosen for the wall, which brings warmth – with wood, of course – to the pure white of the sofas.
8. WHITE AND BEIGE, AN INFALLIBLE CLASSIC
It is the most repeated couple in the houses because they blend in perfectly: white and is bright and vital and beige is the one that puts the warm note.
9. NOTHING COLD WITH COLOR
You can compensate for its apparent “coldness” by accompanying it with warm materials, such as wood or natural fibers. But also with a touch of color. Both blue, as in the image, as well as other brighter tones such as yellow, are perfectly
10. WHITE RELAXES
As true as the pool makes you hungry. White is associated with serenity and balance, which is why it is also perfect in the bedroom. And it is the best choice for your windows to enhance the views: both the profiles and the curtains.
