YOUR STYLE CHECKLIST
Family tones Can’t choose between antique white, snow or vanilla? You don’t have to. Layering different shades of white on your walls, furniture, skirtings and curtains will create a welcoming space. You just need to keep it in the family – that is, stick to all warm or all cool whites.
Consider your decor Before you decide on a paint shade, consider your existing features like furniture, cabinets, tiling and benchtops. All colours have cool or warm undertones, and these will need to work with your perfect white.
Minimal metallics If you like using metals to warm things up, Kerrie-Ann suggests keeping your Midas touch to a minimum. “Use only hints because too much metallic or reflective surfaces can be overbearing in a white space.”
Choose earthy textures Warm whites look great paired with earthy, natural textures because they have a similar warm palette. Try mixing linen and wool fabrics with light timber and cane.
