Explore The Power Of White In Your Design This Season

A successful interior design is about color, texture, and shape. There are many ways to decorate a room, but those that stand out are well thought out and planned meticulously.

You may have a color scheme in mind before you start, or you may have purchased some furniture you are keen to show off. There are several ways to bring colors, textures and shapes into a room to make that all important impact.

White is fast becoming the hot new color for living spaces. People have historically been afraid that too much white in a room can feel a little clinical. Now hospitals and doctor’s offices have moved well away from white, the concerns have gone. Instead, white means fresh, new and clean. It can be like a blank canvas for you to focus on your wall art, furniture and floors. Even white furniture in a white room can work well if you know how to play with light and shade effectively.

Natural light from a window will bring the warm yellow glow of the sun into the room, spreading up the walls and across the furniture. Subtle shade will be created from the shadows. In the evenings, use spotlights and floor lamps to create other interesting lighting effects. You can even choose hints of colored light to enhance the mood, or dim the amount of direct light with a dimmer control.

For shape, texture and vibrant color in the room, you can’t beat abstract art canvases and pictures on the wall. This kind of artwork works very well in extra large sizes, but can also provide minute detail to plain areas with extra small sizes. This splash of vivid color and the contrasts within the work itself can create focus points and interest for the room. Bring out one or two of the starkest colors in your soft furnishings for the couch too.

Rugs are one of the best ways to bring incredible textures into the room. Your sofa may be quite minimalist, but the rug can be full of color, pattern, and texture. Choose longer fibers in your rug. Man-made or wool rugs can both provide tantalizing choices in textures. A centerpiece for your coffee table may bring out some of the colors from your rug. Fill it with pebbles, slate chippings, or any other natural items that beg to be touched!

Your living room is the room you use most often to spend time with your family and guests. A bright and airy room can feel more spacious than it is. Gone are the days of big, squishy sofas that provide little effective seating space. They clog up the room. Choose simple designs of corner settees to bring everyone together in your seating area. Successful interior design never needs to be difficult. You can use apps for your smartphone, or a design scrapbook to bring your ideas together before you commit. Enjoy the process of creating your perfect living room, by using the effects of color, texture and shape this season.
