White is the color of luxury, serenity, purity and calm.

Increasingly, white is the color of choice for  apparel, handbags, shoes, interior paint, accessories and home fashion and furniture.

White is being used as a fashion neutral today. Sofa, table and chest by Hooker Furniture and Sam Moore.

Softened whites are the new go-to choice for neutrals. Used as a neutral, whites often have a creamy look or feature taupe, gray or even metallic undertones, giving them a tactile and textural appeal. 

White may be the ultimate aspirational color.

This could partially be because everyone’s “dream kitchen” seems to be white.

As dreamy as white is, for years it’s been impractical due to how easy it is to stain white upholstery or textiles. But, thanks to today’s wildly popular performance fabrics, that’s no longer a concern. Fabric companies like Sunbrella and Crypton and Culp’s LiveSmart are offering stain repellent and fade resistant upholstery fabrics. With performance fabrics, even spills like coffee or wine disappear from the lightest-colored upholstery,  just by blotting the spill with a cloth.

Sectionals and sofas dressed in white covers like the Sariah from Sam Moore are now possible–and practical — due to stain-resistant performance fabrics.

The beauty of white is how classic and fresh it is at the same time. So many looks can be achieved with the color. 

There’s the sophisticated and tranquil monochromatic look:

And, there’s the crisp, chic look of contrasting whites with brights:

For those looking to create relaxing spaces to help you retreat from the pressures of modern life, it would be hard to find a better color choice than white–in all its beautiful shades and combinations.
