THE ART OF LAY­ER­ING

All-white in­te­ri­ors may not be a new con­cept, but un­like, say, fur-lined de­signer moc­casins, they’re def­i­nitely here to stay. And there’s a vari­a­tion to suit all aes­thet­ics – from bril­liant whites for a min­i­mal­ist gallery vibe, to a white­washed boho feel, there’s never any dec­o­ra­tor re­gret when it comes to this neu­tral shade. Ac­cord­ing to our style ed­i­tor Kerrie-Ann Jones, the key to cre­at­ing beau­ti­fully chic white spa­ces that still ooze warmth lies in clever lay­er­ing. She sug­gests util­is­ing var­i­ous tones of warm whites in decor, fur­nish­ings and walls to add depth and in­ter­est to a room. Try also mix­ing up tex­tures with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and shiny sur­faces, or make like a Parisian and add an ob­jet des cu­riosité – that is, an in­ter­est­ing piece of art, fam­ily heir­loom or flea-mar­ket find. “It’s the process of lay­er­ing a space with vari­a­tions of all of these el­e­ments that cre­ates an in­ter­est­ing home,” Kerrie-Ann says.
