This laid back living room is all about texture and tone. An experiment in 'white-on-white'.
SCROLL DOWN FOR IMAGES OF HOW THIS ROOM CAME TOGETHER AT THE DESIGN SHOW AND TIPS FOR CREATING A SPACE LIKE THIS IN YOUR OWN HOME : )
Search the term 'white-on-white' on Pinterest and the results are room after room of zen-like interiors. Chill-out spaces where interest is created by the architecture, unique patinas and subtle differences in tone. This approach requires discipline (not to let colour sneak in) and some clever thinking (so as not to create a space that is – yawn – boring)
TIP: When creating a monotone space – texture, pattern and surface are your friend – think glass, metals wood, stone, ceramic, shell and foliage.
For a room built on one colour hue - pattern and subtle variances are your friend. We used Resene wallpaper as our starting point - selecting geometric patterns of varying scale - matched with Resene whites with subtle hints of pink, grey and yellow.
Next we added softness with these dreamy 1920's inspired lounge chairs from Adairs - big and comfy - we love the curved edges and pin-tuck detailing.
TIP: It's ok (in fact it's great!) to hang different artworks together. Choose pieces that have something in common - circles, nature, textural brush strokes and just a hint of colour are what unite these three works from endemicworld.
