Although a lot of designers are very fond of the magic ”white”, it is often difficult to handle “too much” white in an interior space.
White bedroom in Ikea:
If you’ve visited the Ikea in causewaybay frequent enough, you might remembered that there’s a bedroom display with the all white design. I hope to take a picture of it a post it here. The nice 2.3m full-height cabinet is simple yet with some details. They’ve also made up the bed with blankets and linings of different texture (but all in white) to add a bit of spice to the whole space.
Yet i felt that the variations in texture actually made the room a bit too ‘Busy’, leaving the room not extremely comfortable.
House in white:
How about a whole house in white? Including living, dinning, bedroom, kitchen all in white?? This could be a big challenge for designers!! And i just found one nicely done case from a magazine. Here are a few peek from there:
Living room with sofa in linen, coffee table in leather. It is interesting as the designer used white coffee table instead of transparent. The only thing in pink is the nice flower in the middle.
With simple colour comes very basic lines, symmetric in almost whole living room to add extra calmness to the room.
Kitchen in white with marble with a splash of light grey. Am not so sure whether it’s something maintainable but definitely adorable!
This marble table in the dining area echos with the marble surface in the kitchen. The mirror cleverly added some depth to the whole space.
There’s a dog?? Finally found a stool of cream colour.
Not much in the bedroom. Everything is really simple, yet the whole design comes together in a very neat and calm way.
The designer really achieve what white is suppose to deliver: calmness, clean, modern and simple.
