White Out!

Posted on 19 February 2015

This is the fourth day and counting for snow and bitter cold in Cincinnati and we’re having flashbacks to last year’s polar vortex that inspired our Brrrr-illiant Blues blog.  The phrase "if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” is ringing in our ears and in that same spirit here is our effort to embrace this blizzard and celebrate the white wonderland that has blanketed our city!

First things first – white is never boring or simple! It’s a very dramatic color that keeps the space clean and refreshing, and just like the ground-covering first snow it will inspire and awe!


Warm up with White

When going with an all-white room, remember texture is key! Think about using woven fabrics on furniture and over-sized pillows.  Mixed media art is a great way to bring texture onto the walls! This adds movement and warmth to the room.

Photographs are another great resource to add visual texture without breaking any dimensional lines. This keeps the room feeling super modern and sleek.

Sidekick Colors

Select a white artwork with prominent pops of color and use this as your accent color throughout the room in throw pillows, vases and flowers, and other accessories. The great thing about having a predominantly white color palette is it allows you the ability to update your room inexpensively. You can quickly freshen up a room by selecting another color in the artwork and swapping out the room’s accessories.

White has a wonderful way of allowing for and accommodating any style. Based on the lines and layout of your design and the style of artwork you choose, your alluring white space can be contemporary or traditional, cottage, country, or urban chic.
