We may not have a white Christmas this year with plenty of snow underfoot, but we can certainly welcome the hue into our homes to provide a cosy haven from the winter weather.

To keep an all-white room from looking sterile, add plenty of texture and hints of natural wood to soften the look. The odd accessory in a neutral colour or pale pastel shade will also help to make your home warm and inviting, while benefitting from the light and airy feel that refreshing white brings.

When choosing a new interior scheme, start with the largest pieces of furniture first; this Javier extending round table is a great choice to bring style and sophistication to your dining area. Its circular white glass table top with oak legs is fresh and modern, and it comes with four funky white chairs, for a fun yet elegant table set.

White, black and grey geometric prints are also still very popular, but are designed in a way that’s a modern twist on a retro trend. Wallpaper is a great way to introduce pattern, but go for a white background in the pattern to continue the theme.

New lighting is the perfect way to shine the spotlight on the Javier dining table and it’s great to go with white. The Oslo 7 Pendant from Barker and Stonehouse is a beautiful cluster of hanging lamps that will add a modern touch, while the White Circus Pendant has a metallic gold lining for a flash of colour.

Dress your new dining table with a striking, contemporary vase or bowl to provide height and focus when not in use. I love the Smoked Grey Simplicity Vase for its asymmetrical shape, which looks just as fabulous on its own as it does when filled with flowers.

Finally, finish with a plush white rug to really pull the entire look together.  Just remember that the key with this trend, whether you’re incorporating white in just one room or throughout your house, is to ensure that the style remains individual and personal to you.
