vintage linens Interior stylist Megan Morton on styling with white accent pillow case baby

The Megan Morton Mathematics 'Three Degrees of Colour' isn't restricted to Heather as we have previously explored. Its genius covers the colour wheel.

Most of us select neutrals (this season’s Dove, Flax, Smoke, Marl and Fog) as our first port of call so I thought it would be the right time to put our three degrees of colour to the test with the Queen Bee of all colours – WHITE.

When you are working with white (and other neutral shades for that matter) the only thing you need to remember is to go heavier handed. You see when it comes to how we perceive colour, the more unusual tones that we don’t view day to day become more magnified to the eye.

And white is a perfect example of this. Your decorating efforts can be quickly dismissed when the neutrality of white cancels itself out. Whereas the more braver tones (think Smoke) can handle themselves a little more given the surrounding elements they are placed within.

So how to control and get the colour palette really right? It is to simply choose a colour, love it, stick with it and see how it gobbles or deflects attention in the room.

The same rules apply to our dear decorating BFF white.

Accent a little

Use it sparingly… a hint of white and watch it make the air in the room feel a little more lighter. It can work beautifully up against dark palettes, in the same reverse way that a black works with all white.

Enhance some more

Up the ante a little bit more with a more generous use of neutrals / white, it not only make your other colours work harder, it gives them a place to be seen.

Immerse yourself

Be fully immersed… white on white on white and channel your inner Scandi.

The beautiful thing about this ‘Three Degrees of Colour’ decorating strategy is that it is something you will always improve on.

The more you see it, the more your eyes will become attuned to it, the more colour confidence you will develop. In addition, it never leaves you; you just keep adding to your visual repertoire until it becomes second nature.

And herein lies the real genius of the strategy. Especially when it comes to the almighty white. Its power is in its blitz and cleansing properties, and then its genus is when you layer texture, much like a winter landscape, through roughs, smooths, heavy and light weight, starched and nubbly.

So our cat Kinky loves to run through boxes and an old rolled oats container. I thought he night like something a little bigger and cuter. He loves it . At first he just tried to eat it.

There are a couple of things that can truly transform a room. Most of them are pretty expensive (new rugs or furniture) or time consuming (painting). My FAVORITE and EASYway to make my space feel new? Cute throw pillows! Throw pillows are an amazing way to add color, texture, and interest to any room. I personally LOVE easy DIY pillows. Not only are they unique, but the price tag is way more budget friendly than ones you can purchase.
