Layer shades of white for Parisian style

Emulate Parisian style with a palette of off-whites.

Recreate a Parisian look

Timeless, understated and effortlessly sophisticated – is there anything more elegant than Parisian style? Recreating this look is easy and, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a spacious apartment or period features to make it work.

Layer different shades of off-white

The secret to this sensual style lies in the subtle colour palette of off-whites. Try painting your walls in almond white and your ceiling in cotton white to create layers of interest in the room.

If you do have a home with architectural details, such as cornicing, skirtings and alcoves, you may like to highlight these with a slightly different hue of white, such as parchment white.

Add a pop of colour

This classic colour scheme is the perfect backdrop for a few bold accents. Think rich, warm hues like burgundy, dusky pink and sherbet orange – these will pop against the white background and add a feeling of warmth to the room.
