Just add white

There’s a style trick that no one is talking about, and that’s because it’s one that only comes to the surface once those in inner circles puts it on display. It’s like they all got the memo but no one knows who sent it. Want in? White.
There’s something so perfect about white in spring.
The colour white is transcendent, powerful and polarizing – it is either taken for granted or obsessed over. White is not just a design trend, it is a design essential. The popularity of white, the necessity of white, the mystique of white is quantifiable in our industry. Of the top ten best-selling FloorworX wood and laminate colours, variants of white occupy 4 spots. It was inevitable that we would recognise white as a 2017 colour trend.
FloorworX Trend Guide (FXTG) forecasts colour trends after taking cues from standouts in architecture, fashion, textiles, home furnishings and consumer goods.
White transcends style, and is seen in traditional, transitional and modern interiors. The colour also presents attractive exterior looks for the home, from colonial to contemporary and virtually everything in between.
However, neutral palettes are warming up and as a result we’re excited by the comeback of natural wood used in combination with this minimal color palette. By adding natural wood in finishes and furniture, you create warmth and texture while achieving a classic look that’s cozy and inviting.
The combination of wood with variations of white and grey, together with pink accent colours can turn almost any interior into a #WONDERLAND.
