A prospective client told me that day she loves the clean, white look of some of the apartments our firm designed in the past, but she's hesitant about adopting such a scheme for her new home as her husband thinks an all-white interior can look too clinical and is hard to maintain.

The husband is not entirely right.

The trick to creating a successful all-white interior is to select hardy, maintenance-free materials. Plastics, vinyl fabrics and glass are like your best friends in an all-white space. Dining chairs like the Panton S Chairs, Tulip chairs and Ghost chairs are all very easy to clean. Look for sofas with detachable covers in easy-care fabrics.

Select paints which are washable for a pristine look in the long run. Contrary to common belief, darker paint tones can actually show up dirt and stains more easily. For window treatment, why not go for white venetian blinds or fuss-free roller blinds for a change?

It's true too much white can be an overkill, so add a dosh of color like yellow or red in the soft furnishings, lamps or paintings to add zest to your decor scheme.
