Styled by Color – White Modern
Memorial Day has come and gone, marking the start of summer and the season to dress in your freshest whites. Whether you subscribe to the “no wearing white before Memorial Day” rule or not, in the world of interior design white is a timeless shade that instantly breathes new life into any space. For June’s color of the month we chose White Modern, a warm off-white that captures the sunshine filled days of summer and pairs well with a broad spectrum of coordinating colors. A timeless white, it balances warm and cool tones and is versatile enough to be used throughout the home as a wall or trim color.
In a bedroom, White Modern creates a sense of comfort and openness with a contemporary edge. It pairs easily with grey and light-moss colored furniture and is complemented by soft ceramic accessories. A true white trim on doors and windows pops against White Modern walls and draws the eye to the world outside, subtly bringing the outdoors in.
White Modern creates the perfect backdrop in any space and coordinates well with a range of furniture and décor pieces. A mid-tone blue dining table and light blue hutch are a natural complement to White Modern walls and work together to create a distinct dining space next to a warm living area with a grey-brown sofa and neutral accessories.

This month we’re taking our trending colors outside for an easy way to elevate your curb appeal. A bold hue applied to your front door can instantly breathe new life into a tired exterior and the color choices are virtually endless! The front door is a perfect size to play with a bright or bold color that might otherwise overwhelm the entire exterior, which made it that much harder for us to choose just a few top picks. While a tomato red or sunshine yellow hue would surely punch up your porch, we found ourselves drawn this month to shades of blue, green and black as cool summer picks for a front door makeover.
