Is White The New Black When It Comes To Modern Interior Design

September 15, 2021

Black is considered to be the color of choice whenever someone wants to add grace, elegance, and modernism to any space or interior. Black when combined with different forms of lighting can completely transform an interior’s appearance to make it sophisticated, modern, and exotic. However, black in itself is a tricky color. The depth and character that you achieve with black or with any deep color for that matter can become depressing and gloomy after some time. It may look good initially but can get monotonous and dull after some time.

On the other hand, white is a versatile color. It boasts freshness, liveliness, and versatility. If used properly and with the right accessories, white can add such a character to the space that cannot be achieved with any other color. If you own a condominium, then white is the perfect color of choice to bring out all the positives of a condo design. Space Factor has designed several condos with the primary theme of white to bring out sophistication and subtle elegance to the space. The following portfolios can help condo owners in incorporating white interior design themes into their own spaces while renovating or revamping their spaces.

Rustic Cotton Candy With White-Toned Variations

This condo features various white-toned design elements spread in a Scandinavian theme. Various vintage and modern elements are combined together with white as the main theme and other pastel cotton candy colors as the undertones. These choices of colors create a fresh and lively ambience that is bound to match with any sort of decorative element of the design.

The bedroom has traditional hardwood floors which contrast beautifully with all the other elements of the room which are predominantly white. One wall features a white-toned vintage wallpaper while all the other walls are plain. The furniture is also off-white colored. The Scandinavian plus minimalist design is evident from the bedroom where everything is kept simple and elegant.

The attached walk-in closet shows vintage elements in a modern placing. The cabinets and shelves have glass doors that help to visualize the collection in the room. Spotlights and mirrors help to bring functionality to the closet while still creating a modern ambience.

The kitchen again depicts a cotton candy themed white interior contrasting beautifully with a pastel shade of blue that helps to uplift the white in the interior. The kitchen tiles are floral themed with shades of white, grey, and blue. These patterned tiles help to enhance the otherwise plain and dull solid colored interior. The floor tiles are slate shaded with no patterns at all. All cabinets are blue with white countertops to create a clean and decent appearance.

The lounge is predominantly white with white floors, walls, shelves, TV consoles, and window blinds. Using so much white can make the area look too washed out. To cater for such a problem, a pastel-coloured sofa and cushions are added. The black TV and home theatre system adds a striking contrast to the white. Similarly, small picture frames and decorative items of various different colours are added to the shelves which help to balance out the overall white theme. Such a lounge creates a fresh and lively space in the morning with lots of sunlight bouncing off the white elements whereas, at night, the various forms of recessed lighting and spotlights create a dramatic and elegant effect.

All Neutral Look At River Bank

This executive condo designed by Space Factor is another example of how using different hues of white you can achieve an all neutral look with a touch of contemporary theme for a classic and sophisticated look. The benefit of choosing these neutral hues is that it allows you to play around with a number of options and offers you flexibility in interior design. Keeping the background neutral, you just change the accents in the foreground to completely transform and revamp the appearance.

The lounge in this condo uses a white/off-white background which is accentuated by adding various accents of Oakwood color and texture. The sofa is slate colored which is the same shade as that of the curtains. Wooden textured cabinets and wall panels help to complete the all-neutral look while still making the space appear bright. A small dining table and matching chairs are all the shade of Oakwood. A few indoor plants and floors add just the right amount of color to this neutral palette. Recessed lighting and indirect lighting add an elegant and sophisticated touch.

One of the bedrooms goes after the white theme with an off-white platform bed that has an attached study table to maximize functionality. The headboard of the bed also has hidden storage areas to maximize the usage of any available space. The platform bed has drawers underneath which again help in storage and to keep the space decluttered. The curtains are a soft shade of beige which goes with the overall neutral theme of the room. The floors are light Oakwood colored which complete the all-neutral look.

For the other bedroom, the designers went with a relatively darker choice of color by contrasting dark brown with the off-white theme. The walls are kept simple with no wallpaper and of cream shades. The platform bed is of dark brown color and it has an attached nightstand with it. The room also features a study table and chair which have been designed to take as little space as possible. Finally, everything is brought together by adding curtains of two tones: dark brown and cream.

The Land Of Dreams At Hill View

The designers at Space Factor have rightly named this project of theirs as the land of dreams since it offers a comfortable, sophisticated, and unique interior design for its dwellers. The predominant theme of this condo is again white and its hues. However, certain touches of different colors in different rooms make the space come alive in a unique and fun manner.

There is an open-concept kitchen with a dining area that flows beautifully into the living room. The floors are tiled with off white colored ceramic tiles. All the wall panels and consoles are of a similar color of laminate wood. The accents in the panels are of a deep shade of grey which blends perfectly well with the off-white elements. The dining area also features laminate wood stools and a counter with black iron stands to contrast with it. Spotlights and recessed lighting bring a touch of style and elegance to this space.

The living room may look spectacular in this condo but the real magic happens when you enter the kids room! The walls are painted in a pastel baby pink color which immediately makes the room appear cute and fun. But the design takes it to another level. A small doorway covered with a curtain leads you to a small area where a mattress is placed on the floor and it has shelves and a storage area next to it. This seems to be a perfect nook for an imaginative girl. However, on top of this nook behind this area are stairs that lead to an upper area where there is a small living space for another girl. The designers have done a splendid job of creating bed spaces and comfortable nooks for two children in such a small space. And the overall design and theme of this room makes one want to stay here forever.
