Tips for Success with Winter Whites

Tips for Success with Winter Whites

White isn’t a colour you’d usually associate with winter fabrics or consider for adding a cosy feel to your home. But by choosing the right shades and textures, you can use winter white fabrics to stunning effect.

SOFT WHITES AND GENTLE LIGHTING FOR A TIMELESS LOOK

When choosing winter fabrics, you shouldn’t feel limited to the traditionally warm shades of red, plum and burnt orange. Used well, winter white fabric can make your scheme calm, cosy and welcoming.

For an all-white scheme, it’s important to consider the tone of your paint and the lighting in your room. Brilliant white paint is normally too harsh, so consider using a softer antique white or one with a touch of pink, yellow or blue. Adding gentle lighting with lamps, fairy lights and candles adds cosiness and will transform your white scheme into something really special.

For curtains and upholstery, look for an off white fabric with a self-pattern or subtle stripe. Velvet or chenille are great winter fabrics for adding softness too. 

LAYER TEXTURE AND TONE FOR A WARM SCHEME

To add personality and warmth to an all-white scheme, consider using a variety of winter white fabrics, layering different textures and tones.

For a bedroom scheme that’s calm and relaxing, pair crisp white cotton bed linen with a soft throw in an off white fabric such as wool or velvet, and a cosy long-pile rug. Dressing the windows with a soft neutral stripe will add depth or, for a touch of luxury, use fabrics with a metallic finish. 

CRISP LINEN FOR A WHITE CHRISTMAS

White can be very unforgiving so it may be best kept away from children and pets in the master bedroom, or saved for special occasions.

Adding winter white fabrics to a Christmas scheme guarantees a look that’s simple but luxurious. Start by dressing the table with white table linen, silver chargers and white crockery, then add some sparkle with your best silver cutlery and crystal glasses. Accessorising with silver baubles, white flowers and pretty candles will complete the scheme.
