Winter in Taos is truly breathtaking. This blanket of white was pure inspiration for the Taos Lifestyle Design Team. Read on for creative and stylish ways to incorporate shades of white into your home.
White Furniture Works
Kids? Pets? You don’t shy away from white. There are stain resistant and durable fabric options to keep your whites bright. The key is to select a fabric that suits your home. A white sofa or chair is a perfect blank canvas. Easily change the look and feel with a variety of decorator pillows.
Set the Stage to Make Colors Pop
White may be a neutral color, but it’s far from boring. As a foundation, white creates an ideal setting for splashes of color to come alive. A robin’s egg blue bowl full of oranges would be striking atop our dreamy white server. Keep in mind that when adding pops of color into your setting, select one or two to highlight. Mixing too many shades, patterns, and textures can overwhelm a room.
Find the Perfect Shade of White
White certainly isn’t one single shade. There are close to 200 shades of white at Benjamin Moore alone and their 2016 Color of the Year is “Simply White”. Choose your hue carefully as some have undertones of blue, pink, or green. Before you create your white wonderland, appraise your paint chip or paint sample during different times of the day. This will showcase your shade in a variety of light and shadow.
Make a Statement
A simple and easy way to incorporate white into your home is through accessories. A few white accents instantly lighten and brighten up a space. Choose a statement piece or a grouping of similar objects such as white candle holders in varying heights or translucent milk glass vases. Bring a bit of nature inside with a bundle of white birch branches or a beautiful porcelain- colored orchid.
