In the digital world there is only one white shade: 255, 255, 255 for RGB space or 0, 0, 0, 0 for the CMYK palette. In real life, however, white color samples contain different shades. In the old days, this white used to be the most popular choice for painting walls. Later, it fell into disgrace to return on the wave of interest and inspiration from the Scandinavian interiors.

The presence of white in the Scandinavian design is strictly practical. This color reflects as much as 80% of light, which, with limited availability of sunlight during the year, allows to illuminate the interior. It can also optically increase the space . The white color, as the dominant, can therefore be introduced wherever we want to highlight spaciousness and cleanliness. It works perfectly in communication routes and reception areas. It is the color of brave and uncompromising people. It symbolizes high quality and professionalism. Thanks to the atmosphere of freshness and air, it will be perfect for resting areas.

As a dominant, however, white will not work in spaces intended for long-term work. Too bright places are perceived as unnatural by our receptors and therefore are uncomfortable. This effect makes us feel tired and has a negative effects on visual performance. In interiors intended strictly for concentration, it is better use white as the accompanying color. In a colorful environment, we work better and make fewer mistakes.

In interiors with the participation of white, use the timeless duets of white and natural wood, green, preferably in the form of plants, blue or gray. Classic duo of black and white is very elegant as well. White can also be used in when we want to display accessories or furniture and will make a perfect background, that is why it so often used in museums.
