Choosing the right white is one of the most important decisions you can make when decorating. A carefully chosen colour scheme can be completely ruined if you chose a bright, plasticky white for the trim and ceilings. Whites shouldn’t be an afterthought, but rather integral to creating the perfect scheme. Every white and neutral shade has different undertones making it suited to different colours, from rich reds to soft blues and stronger tones, it’s important to choose a white that works with the other colours you have chosen.
So which white is right for your colour scheme? Below is a handy guide to the whites and neutrals you should choose to complement the other colours in your scheme. This list is in no way comprehensive, but it’s a great starting point to creating a really cohesive look in your home, making your scheme look curated, complete and decorated – something we are all striving for!
