Fresh, clean, airy and spacious, a white decor scheme achieves all of these desirable aesthetics but can sometimes project a cold and sterile environment. With that said, there are plenty of ways in which to offset the coolness of the clean white colour palette, and these two inspirational home interiors demonstrate one of the most subtle approaches to the task. In order to gently warm the look without compromising the minimalist mood, these white interior designs incorporate areas of light wood tone and a delicate blend of beige accents. Dainty black anchor points weight the breezy white decor palette in tiny doses, just enough to sharpen and define.

Measuring 140 square metres, this modern apartment in Chisinau, Moldova, features a white interior with industrial-style concrete statement walls. A modular sofa threads a warming beige accent through the centre of the open plan living space. Wood effect kitchen cabinets match the mellow hue.
Opposite the modern sofa, a TV wall is clad with attractive wood grain panelling to increase the visual temperature, and to neatly conceal media storage.
White upholstered dining chairs and an ice white dining table keep the look uber clean and bright over by the floor-to-ceiling windows. White wire mesh dining room pendant lights perfectly complement the airy aesthetic.
A luxurious white marble backsplash builds a half-height room divider between the living room sofa and a kitchen peninsula. A linear suspension light draws an even line of illumination along the kitchen countertop and provides reading light to the couch at the same time.
The pure white kitchen comes to an abrupt stop at a bold, raw concrete statement wall. A black shelving unit and black appliances add visual weight to the spacious white room.
The layout flows openly into the first bedroom.
A whisper of grey plays across the upholstered bed, which draws a colour connection with the raw concrete wall treatment. A modern wall light strikes a strong black line against a white headboard wall framed with traditional panel beading.
There is a portiere to give privacy to the bedroom when desired.
A low, linear bedside table lays subtly upon the oak floor boards.
Heavy drapes add an exaggerated sense of comfort into the cool bedroom design scheme.
The second bedroom in the apartment is lined with beautiful wood slatted wall panels.
The textured wall panels also provide a practical function, in that they provide acoustic value in the bedroom’s second role as a piano room.
In the third double bedroom, a yellow 4 poster bed hits like a beam of sunshine into the surrounding white and grey decor scheme.
Bespoke storage cabinets float above the bedside unit in a clean white finish.
Smooth grey wet walls in the shower area provide peaceful contrast with modern matt white shower fixtures.
The grey wall treatment flows around onto the adjacent wall, where a simple white wall hung toilet and bidet set are coordinated with a white vertical radiator

A black bedside table stands at each side of the room, complemented by a black and white area rug beneath the bed.
The walk-in wardrobe is a cosy cocoon of wooden closet units.
Wood slatted panels texture the bathroom vanity area, adding a honey coloured hue behind a clean white basin and a black bathroom mirror.
