When we get the decorating and home decor magazines landing on our desks, one of the first things we do (after checking whether we made it into the pages) is to check out the trends and styles that are set to steal the show.
We like to get to as many interior design shows as we can in search of trends, fabrics and shapes that we can add a little tuiss magic to, so most of the time, we kind of expect it. This month however, we were taken to surprise. And the trend? White!
Not much more, nothing less. Just lots of white! Okay, just a little black too.
Honestly, we kind of hate white. It can feel cold, stark. We love colour, we can’t help it. There’s only so many shades of white that exist, meaning it’s harder to make a room feel tonal and interesting. But apparently White is in, and we’re trying to get our heads around it…
The good news is that we in fact stock a lot of white products. White blinds can be great in a room full of colour and they are pretty versatile if you’re the indecisive sort.
Suppose the beauty with white is that small accents can make a big impact. Colours don’t drown against one another but instead stand out.
Changing the mood can be easy too, it’s all in the details. Swap cushion covers, floral displays or even a throw to a different colour and you’ve got a whole different feeling going on.
