Color of the Month: White Hot August Brings Classic Cool to Your Home
Posted August 5th, 2011 | by The Update
This month’s color is dreamy, luxe white. Like puffy clouds on a cool day, a divine wedding dress, or a spoonful of sugar for your tea, white is a soothing reminder of the sweet things in life. This color works any time of year, evoking images of both the crisp, warm summer and the brisk, snowy winter, and can be subtle enough to accent your existing color scheme or bold enough to be the focus of your color palette. Since white is such a neutral color, you can use it for any style, from clean contemporary to shabby chic design.
Here are a few inspirational photos to show you how to add pure white elegance to your home.
Shabby-Chic decor manages to combine both the rustic and the regal in a most elegant fashion—and white is the perfect color choice for this popular style.
White’s evocations of purity and richness can bring your home a sense of being both cultured and graceful.
White is often seen in contemporary home design, and for good reason—the pure color palette allows the clean lines and striking artfulness of modern design to really stand out.
