Interior design with white tones
Fascinating world of colours: White
Whether snow, clouds or white flowers, the achromatic colour white has a positive connotation with us and is generally associated with joy in Western culture. White stands for peace and infinity, but also for innocence and purity, which is why most wedding dresses are still white today. It is quite different in parts of Africa and Asia: in Africa, white symbolizes death in many places, white body painting is said to enable contact with spirits and the Buddhists wear white as a mourning colour. White develops its extremely positive properties in the area of interior design: here, the living colour provides a perfect basis for very different furnishing styles and the combination with other colours. White ensures calm, clarity and lightness in the interior; depending on whether white tones have a touch of, for example, green, blue or pink, their effect can be very different. A colour concept that is predominantly based on white can be enlivened by small, bright colour accents in the form of coloured home accessories or individual furniture. White is also popular in combination with grey and black – a colour concept that looks neutral and modern and can also be spiced up with bright colours. White also looks absolutely perfect in connection with natural materials: floors in warm wood tones or furniture and home textiles made from natural fibers in combination with different shades of white allowing for a particularly calm and relaxed feel-good atmosphere.
