Devon in Lincoln Park asked Designer Ann:
“Can I mix white fabrics with off white fabrics?”
“Please do! In fact, using only one shade of white can be boring and flat.
I love to combine all shades of whites, off-whites, ivories, and creams in layers for visual interest and depth.
Try a chalky white with bone or sesame. Pearly accents can add a hint of grey and a metallic shine. It’s all about playing with texture and pattern!
If you’re worried about it looking unintentional, then plop a white pillow on your cream chair and say “Take that, color police!”
It’s like how you no longer need to match your bag to your shoes – doing the unexpected is much more modern and fresh!”
