The white interiors often attract my attention, since it is well known my love for the white and its nuances. Tehy are white and neutral but at the same time they emanate heat. White has many shades or at least I like to decline the white in various shades and not consider it a single color, by many described as “flat.”
White is not absolutely flat and anonymous: it has character and gives character to interiors, which acquire a new light and an unusual purity.
White represents simplicity, sun, air, elegance and style. White is vitalizing light that regenerates the body and clears the mind. It remembers Greece and Mediterranean architecture in general.
Whites are the interiors inspired by my beloved Nordic design, combined with wooden elements and blacks.
There is a warm white, which results in shades such as white milk, white linen or creamy white, they have inside a bit of taupe. And the cold white toes, mixed with a touch of black, gray or blue. It should therefore be taken into account surely the exposure of the room you want to furnish or paint with white: a room where the sun doesn’t shine at noon receives a gray-blue light, great if you want to get an effect of freshness. The white walls are a good choice to cool the rooms facing south. For example, the gray attenuates the reflecting qualities of white and helps to “calm” the space where there are large windows that flood the room with a bright light.
So it would be important to devote to each room its own right shade of white! We return to the concept of shades of white, I know someone will make a face aghast. But it is so! Do you think there is a Off-White collection of Benjamin Moore with 140 whites! so you can easily guess that behind the white actually there is a whole world of small and large shades!
