White radiates calm and brings light in any room. White walls, furniture, curtains, any accessories ... A lot of white! All colors have an effect on how we feel, each of them has a different influence, and white brings energy and purity, an accent color and, combined with wood or pastel colors, can provide for a completely different style in each room.
The Nordic style is characteristic for the repeated use of white in rooms, decoration, walls... The best thing about this color is that it can help us to hide irregular corners and walls.
Generally, white is the most used color for walls in houses. It combines perfectly with almost all types of decoration because there are different shades of white available and thus, we can achieve one or the other for each style:
- Cream White/off-white: A white room can be a very relaxing refuge, and using this tone will be great if combined with curtains and bedding in ivory white tones. Playing with the combination of white fabrics in your bedroom, can relax the atmosphere and bring relaxation to the space. We love the option of white walls and ceilings with touches of color in furniture and accessories.
- Nuclear white: A very classic way to treat the walls of our home, wooden doors and furniture is to paint them with a bright white nuclear tone. This setting also works very well in spaces with modern decoration. Painting walls, furniture and wood panelling with nuclear white will create the feeling of spaciousness: the walls of a small room painted in a nuclear white tone will suggest amplitude.
- Ivory white: A usual objection of some people about painting certain rooms in white is the sensation of coldness in, for example, kitchens, where a slight ivory tone could be a more satisfying option. Ivory is perfect for rooms that have parquet and rooms that are illuminated by halogen lights that emit clear light. A white kitchen can always provide for what you are looking for. The variety of styles is unlimited: modern, classic, rustic or sober spaces.
- Greyish white: This tone is used on the walls of many art galleries and museums. It transmits sophistication and gives the feeling of a backdrop. For this reason, it is the most common color used for the living room, especially for the wall where the television is located.
