White With Black Accents

We love the freshness of white, with pops of colour.

“Take chances. Don’t be afraid to mix. Consider materials from a place of ‘authenticity’ — what feels real, strong, beautiful, timeless and affirming to the touch…”- Drew McGukin

It may be a few hours of painting and the cost of the gallon of paint, BUT it refreshes the whole room!

OC-117

Benjamin Moore has some of the best shades of white, it’s light and monochromatic…keeping up with Scandinavian design trends that continued to dominate home blogs and Houzz.

We’ve covered black home exteriors, so we’re flipping the switch to see what a home can look like dressed in all white.

6 Winter White Interiors To Dream About

White can give you a bright earthy feel, especially with indoor trees and rustic woods.

Light Gray Flooring

With Benjamin Moore’s OC-117 Simple White as Benjamin Moore’s colour of 2016, it’s no surprise that it looks so good with light gray flooring.

This sample from Floortrends really is a new type of look for the future of design, more casual, with an oil rubbed finish. No stain and re-finish required, just a coal of oil and this floor can withstand heavy traffic.  Going lighter and with a matte finish, allows you to hide anything.

Below are a few examples pairing white and light gray, we will be seeing a whole lot more of this look in the next few years. Dark flooring has been trendy for years, but they show every scrath or piece of dog/cat fur or dust.
