The Beauty of White

Posted on 21 August 2014

What is it about white that we love so much? From our smiles to our diamonds—there is something utterly alluring about the purity and freshness of white. The most fantastic thing about a completely white space is that it is simply a blank canvas for us to add splashes of our own expression! This week we've decided to feature some of the talented artists that have decided to become a part of Blink Art Resource Guide!  Take a look at their work and while your at it take a look at some of the PERKS of becoming a part of Blink!

Striking Accord

When you are working with a vibrant color palette in a single space, white is the perfect way to balance and ground the design. White works as a neutral ground when the accompanying artwork in the room is busy. Any piece that can seem overwhelming in composition or color is easily offset by the purity of a white foundation. Why are the walls of galleries and museums white? This is the best way to create a visual background and foreground. White spaces are one of the best environments to display your favorite pieces of artwork. All the focus will be on the artwork. If you want something to truly be showcased—or to be the focal point of a space—white accents or walls will really make your pieces POP!

White Knight

White is an extremely romantic color (or…really, the absence of color…but, you understand). Any light that filters into a space with a significant amount of white will be reflected and diffused, brightening the room tenfold. This can make a relatively small room feel much larger. White is soft, airy, and cozy—it’s the color of clouds, breaking waves, and whipped cream!

Let Me Count the Ways

White is simply transitional. White spaces also permit you to change the look of the room as often as you please. Without having to worry about clashing colors, you can rotate your artwork at any time! You can have a painting for every season, or feel confident whenever you find your tastes changing from one design style to another that the overall look will still work. White is the clean slate that lets your favorite pieces shine center stage!
