White Walls – Always In Fashion
Trends may come and go, but white walls will always be stylish. White makes a room fresh and instantly adds a clean and bright feeling. Best of all, white works with almost every interior design style.
Like everything else in design, white presents its own set of of challenges. Since the shade belongs to a more subtle section of the color wheel, undertones and finishes play a major role in how white paint colors look when dry. That makes it tough to select the “right” white for a room. Designer tip – white paints should always be consistent, work with your built-ins, furniture and existing elements.
A fun way to create a modern look is to paint baseboards and walls the same white with different finishes. For a traditional feel, keep the finish and mix up the whites on different surfaces.
