While white walls are very common in Indian homes, that’s as far as we’ll go to accommodate the colour. Owing to the maintenance factor, most people tend to shy away from white decor. But when used well, white can evoke a sense of calm, purity, confidence and an overall sense of wellbeing. Here, we take you through some beautiful homes we’ve designed with white. Be inspired!
Now, this is what a warm welcome looks like! Pristine white walls with upholstered furniture to match, the only coloured elements are the pouffe, the splashes of green and the paintings on the wall. White makes a room look more spacious and this design is proof of that.

When the bed and furnishings are white, it only makes sense that the wardrobe is too. Whether it’s high-gloss or suede in finish, it only aids in making the room appear more spacious. You can add small accents here and there to break the monotony. White on wood is a choice we’d recommend!
