Wonderful White: Bed linens and Soft Furnishings

Hey Friends,

In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about White, which happens to be my favorite color. Today’s blog post (especially “on demand” by my blog subscribers) would give you a glimpse into perfectly designed bed linens and soft furnishings designed in this particular hue.

Almost everything looks so wonderful and modern in white. Not just wonderful and modern, but also bright, neat, fresh, chaste and subtle. It is easy to pair it up against many colors, especially pastel hues and being so subdued in nature, it gives other hues a chance to stand out loud and clear.

In this picture by Wallace Sacks, white has been combined with silver grey which happens to be a neutral color, yet is looking so elegant against white.

This image by Debenhams Scene , features white as a very calm hue alongside blue which is acting as an accent and together they give rise to a serene ambiance which is stylish and elegant too.

This bedding by Yorkshire Linen looks very sophisticated in white, perfect for all age groups as it looks both classic and chic.

This image by Décor Pad looks simple and chaste with accents of black and grey. The look is both semiformal and easy.

This picture by Designers Guild features a bed linen that is formal, sophisticated and modern. The look is simple and will remain in vogue for a very long time.

WHITE – A Pure and Bright Color Trend

Hey Friends,

First of all I would like to extend my heartiest wishes for this festive season and hope it brings all the happiness in your lives.

We all consider some or the other color as our favorite color. Mine is White. I just cannot imagine my world without white. Some people find it very bare and ordinary, but to me, it is extremely attractive and holds the power to be well cherished in a range of decorating styles. Saying that, I have always had a thing for white and moreover with oodles of design ideas in my mind, white is simply unavoidable for me.

Be it for a serene and casual look or an absolutely formal and welcoming atmosphere, there are innumerable hues that we can use alongside white. It adds a sort of crispness and freshness in our space, with furniture, walls, focal points or accessories.

The best thing I like about this color is that it can be well mixed in the existing décor and paired up with seasonal colors that happen to be in vogue. White is a classic and timeless color which sums up for a lot of versatility with easy acceptance of other hues. According to me it is the only color that is so fresh, clean and easy to live with.

Below are some pictures to illustrate the use of white in spaces well decorated.
