Why We Love White

White works well with anything - with any style, in any room.

White illuminates darker spaces, creates the illusion of depth in smaller rooms, and brightens the mood in any space. When you walk into a white room, layered with beautiful textures, furniture and pops of colour, feelings of calmness and composure transpire. There are hundreds of whites to choose from and we love layering a variety of shades to create spaces that are beautiful, inviting and reflect our client’s design vision. 


Explore how we love to use white for each unique space in the home.

In this kitchen, white is everywhere. From the appliances and the cabinetry, to the wall colour and backsplash, the kitchen is bathed in white and grounded with a white oak island, pantry barn door and hardwood floors finished in a shade of silver-grey, creating a look that is clean, crisp and classic.


White is the perfect choice for bathrooms and never goes out of style. White in a bathroom is modern, clean and luxurious.

Everything in this master ensuite is white, with splashes of soft grey in the marble floors and tiled walls, and polished nickel hardware and lighting. 


White brick fireplaces or shiplap walls make a bold statement and create an air of warmth and relaxation in family and living rooms.

While many people might shy away from white furniture, white washable slipcovers in a heavy-duty cotton or linen are a fabulous choice for sectionals, sofas and chairs. Slipcovers are easy to clean and care for, and look fabulous with pops of colour like blues, greys, reds or your favourite colour. Check out this slipcovered sectional by Lee Industries, available at Lilly Home + Design.


White is inspiring, clean, serene and impactful for any space in your home. Have fun decorating with white.
