BOOKMARK

Who doesn’t want a home that’s full of natural light in ever corner (even the bathroom) all day? A bright home doesn’t mean the walls have to be starched white – unless you’ve a thing for that colour, and we’ll show you how in a bit. Mixing and matching neutral, pastel colours can also help let the light in and add warmth to your space. Here’s how.

QUITE WHITE

For a safe bet, go all white. But you don’t want it to look like a hospital room, so introduce textures. White brick walls, glass windows, a neutral rug, and light wood accents can all add to the rustic feel.

JAPANESE TECHNIQUE

The simple beauty of this Japanese-inspired home is partially due to its clean, uncluttered look, and symmetrical proportion of furniture makes you feel zen. The trick to create this calm balance is to anchor an oversized furniture against a wall, such as the TV console and bookshelf, so other large items, like the sofa, doesn’t engulf the room.

STEP ON IT

As you can see, white flooring will bring any room to life, brightening the whole space and even making small rooms appear larger. Don’t hesitate to complement it with black, blues and wood – they’ll really pop.

HUES THERE

Don’t like all hospital white? No problem. Start with light, pastel colours and complement them with neutral shades. Then add light woody touches for warmth. It’ll still work out fine.

NATURALLY BRIGHT

By completely covering the wall with bright white paint, this living room feels open and comfortable. Simple, plush furniture finishes the look and enhances natural light. Doing without a curtain or blind, in this case, brings in more sunlight.

WARM GENTLY

Pure white walls could cause a room to feel cold and sterile. So, select whites with a hint of yellow or pink for cosiness. Ivory, cream and porcelain whites are safe bets for large walls. Choose natural materials for warmth: a reclaimed wood coffee table, a cow skin rug and furry throws.
