Peaceful, serene, cathartic, there is no shortage of adjectives to describe a white room. Designers aiming to create restorative and rejuvenating bedrooms are no strangers to forgoing color in favor of a palette of white. When applied correctly, white and its many components – see: ivory, cream, ecru – are just as expressive as their more colorful counterparts. While some like white on white, others love to pair white with high contrast hues like black or blue. Yet others prefer to pair it with whispers of color to create a dreamy retreat that’s as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the soul.
Part of the beauty of white lies in its different tones which can evoke a multitude of atmospheres. Cream and almond shades (all white with a yellow undertone, really) are ideal for infusing bedrooms with a cozy, sunny feel. On the other end of the spectrum, whites backed by blue or green are cool and calming, making them ideal for enveloping a room in a billowy, vaguely coastal aura. For a wintery hue that strikes the right balance between warm and cold, go for a bold white – some even like to call it “decorator white” to show how perfect it is. Bright, pigment-free white is just the shade to cocoon a room in a cloudy feel. Mix it with texture to really bring it to life.
If you’ve been considering a white bedroom but need a little inspiration to get started, we’ve rounded up a set of beautiful white bedrooms to see. Scroll on to see why when it comes to bedrooms, designers enthusiastically stick to white.
