Painted Furniture for Summer

With warmer temperatures and sunshine, we often reflect the changes we see outdoors to those we want to see inside. Softer textures, lighter color palettes and fresh whites embody the joy and simplicity of summertime.

White painted furniture will lift and lighten your home décor and provide the perfect backdrop for sophisticated neutral shades or bold pops of color, creating a look that will see you through the warmest months and beyond.

Today, we’re sharing ideas on styling our white painted furniture ranges and why the lightest shades can be the perfect choice for nearly every home and style.

Let the Outdoors In

One of the greatest joys of summer living is the abundance of greenery right outside our door. White furniture creates a quiet backdrop for indoor plants in this bedroom along with layered bedding and a white canopy that softens and brightens the look.

Eclectic Styling

We love the look of white painted furniture with a splash of industrial style. Team your whites with a mix of wood tones and dark metal to create an eclectic mix that’s perfect for every season and bring in natural textures and greenery to create a bright and welcoming scheme.

Embrace Minimalism

Let your white furniture create a quiet and unobtrusive backdrop for a more minimalist scheme. The white painted legs of the table alongside white floors and walls create a quiet foundation for the impact of mix and match chairs, bold tableware and fun paint effects.

Mix and Match

Speaking of mixing and matching, there’s no reason not to pair your white furniture with natural wood pieces and vivid hues. With a striking wood feature wall and bold paint, white furniture creates a place for your eyes to rest in an energetic composition.

Tropical Oasis

Have a taste for the tropics in your home décor? White furniture will create a calming oasis when combined with a bold palm print wallpaper and natural textures. Consider mixing white chairs with other styles for easy-going summer style.

Elegant Vintage

In a character property, white painted furniture with traditional detailing can be a wonderful alternative to darker, heavier antique pieces. Space may be at a premium in a hallway, but a white sideboard provides storage and surface without taking up as much visual space, creating a light and airy welcome.

Creative Color

In spaces where bold color is used, white furniture will act as a catalyst, binding a wide palette of colorful soft furnishings and allowing cheery hues to take the spotlight. Above, a white bookshelf creates a lighter space for personal objects and books to shine.

Coastal Vibes

There are few color combinations as classic as blue and white so using white painted furniture in a scheme that hints at coastal hues is a natural choice.  Alongside a mix of navy and pale blue shades with warm ivory pieces, choose a few small accents of natural wood as well to create warmth and follow this with layered textiles and objects as a finishing touch.
