Mood board: Tones of white

As part of Living etc’s June ‘White Issue’, we have created a white mood board to reflect Tricia Guild’s white words of wisdom when working with this wonderful hue.

‘I can’t think of a single room that wouldn’t benefit from a dash of white. Its acts as a ‘breathing space’, while also allowing brighter colours and pattern to shine’.
‘A bluish white gives a crisp finish, particularly in a light-filled, south facing rooms, but avoid using it in cooler spaces as it will make a room feel colder. Use red or yellow tinted whites to lend warmth and brightness’.
‘If you are decorating solely with white, texture is vital. Stay within the same tone, but then play with Juxtaposition-shiny with matt etc. Each texture adds a new layer of interest as light bounces from one surface to the next, lending the space energy and tactility. I love the way the hint of metallic in some Designers Guild wallpapers lends an unexpected lightness of touch’.
