What Does White Symbolize?
Used throughout history to symbolize purity and possibility, bright white in interior design often connotes ‘newness,’ ‘cleanliness’ and other feelings of refreshment.
While using bright white decor and furniture in interiors may be associated with an array of positive characteristics, it also brings practical value. Because it is, in essence, a non-color – completely devoid of any wavelength whatsoever – bright white is an easy ‘canvas’ that goes with almost every color imaginable.
Choosing a Bright White Color Combination
For a contemporary-chic feel, consider going down the lesser-traveled path by using bright white as an accent ‘color’ in and of itself. Setting a bright white nightstand or end table, for example, against a wall painted in a vibrant hue will make the white pop against the vivid backdrop, creating a defined, pulled-together look for any space.
