A white-centric palette has to be one of the most classic summer looks, and is a good choice for a south-facing bedroom that benefits from lots of sunlight (we’ve used bright white Snow here for the freshest feel).
But to stop your white scheme from feeling too one-dimensional, be sure to bring in lots of contrasting textures as your first point of difference, and then at least one tonal difference too.
Look closer at our white bedroom and you’ll straight away see how the walls have more than paintwork going on. There are original beams running vertically across every wall, which we’ve painted white so they stand out without shouting for attention. You could add panelling from skirting to ceiling (or just halfway up your wall) or shiplap boarding to your ceiling if your home doesn’t have any old character like this.
It’s not all about crisp white though. The little bedside table is in pale and pretty Sage green. The throw is in a muted shade of grey. The headboard of the Larsson bed is in a stone-coloured linen (Chloe Trellis). And the floor is a starkly contrasting deep walnut brown. Differences like these help the white to stand out more, rather than distracting from it.
