White and wood: a per­fect com­bi­na­tion

Sackville Tribune - - REAL ESTATE -

Few homes don’t have at least one room painted white. That’s be­cause whether it’s pure or lightly tinted, white brings loads of bright­ness and vis­ually en­larges small rooms. How­ever, over­do­ing this colour can also give an im­pres­sion of cold­ness or even monotony. The so­lu­tion? Com­bine white with wooden el­e­ments.

A ve­neer hard­wood floor, for ex­am­ple, is a great set­ting for an off-white love seat. And what could be more invit­ing than a soft cream du­vet on a cher­ry­wood bed? And just imag­ine how el­e­gant an ivory win­dow dress­ing would look float­ing grace­fully next to an an­tique pine dresser.

The fi­nal touch for a white­and-wood decor? Add an ac­cent colour to give some punch to the over­all look. If you like keep­ing up with decor trends, use one or more of the 2016 Pan­tone colours, such as Rose Quartz or Seren­ity.
