01 May 50 Hues of White – Oh, My!
Even though white is not technically a colour, adding even the littlest hue to a brilliant white, can change the atmosphere in your design setting, marshal your guests’ attention to the best of your home’s decor and even create spaces that rest your heart at ease.
Here are our top 3 tips for using all the hues of this too-often-underestimated design pallette to your pleasure.
- It might sound a little obvious at first, but it is really very important to test with a few different hues of white before settling on the right one for you. Every room has it’s own specific lighting and the easiest way to tell which hue will work best for your design scheme is to see for yourself how a specific hue will look in context. Weather you are reupholstering a luxuries headboard in white, or considering a cooler tone for sweeping tall silk drapes – don’t be shy about asking your supplier for swatches and samples to consider right in the space, and light, you are going to be decorating.
