Pure white is often described as either the absence of colour (in paint), or all colours combined (in light), but when it comes to decorating, adding just a hint of another colour can suddenly make white incredibly interesting. Explore the family of off-whites and you’ll discover a huge variety of shades that offer a slightly richer, warmer or calmer feeling than bright white.

Whether you choose creamy shades like vanilla and old lace or sandy hues like beige or bone, off-whites can be used to create a nuanced, restful and delightful effect. Mix varying tones, textures, shapes and prints of off-white to add contrast in an all-white room, or use the same shade of off-white throughout the space to provide a cohesive, crisp look.
