Blending clean white decor accents with warm wooden elements creates soothing and serene home interiors that quiet the mind and soothe the soul. With that said, how do we combine this naturally complementary colour scheme into an impactful design that’s set to impress our house guests? We’ve sourced two inspirational home tours that we think hit the balance between tranquil and impactful just right. Join us as we wander through chic white and wood lounges, impressive dining rooms, elegant kitchen installations, and peaceful bedroom designs with standout style. We’ll discover creative contrasts between fresh white furniture and wood slatted feature walls, rounded wooden wall panels that create flow, and high-end home styling ideas.
Chequerboard pattern makes a high-contrast statement across the living room of our first featured home design. A modular sofa lays fresh white upholstery on top, alongside matching white ottomans and crisp white coffee tables.
The large area rug holds the fragmented furniture items together as one cohesive lounge layout.
A tartan throw lays tonal contrast onto the plain, light sofa upholstery to create added interest.
The base of the square coffee tables are designed to store books and extra throws, which leave the surface clear for drinks and snacks, or more decorative items like candle holders.
A wooden bench rounds out the seating arrangement and serves as a subtle visual stop between the main lounge and a second seating area. A modern fireplace forms a cosy focal point for the room.
The second seating area makes use of a wide walkway that leads to the bedroom.
A pair of large pendant light shades give the small seating area elevated status.
Sliding wood slatted doors allow the bedroom to be joined with the mini lounge area. The light-permeable door design also allows natural daylight from the living space to be shared with the windowless bedroom location.
Back out in the main living space, the open layout lounge flows directly into the dining room and kitchen.
Slimline dining room pendant lights visually anchor the open plan dining area in position. Light wood dining chairs make gentle contrast with a modern white dining table.
Repositionable track lights illuminate a long white kitchen island, which is teamed with contrasting black kitchen bar stools to form a casual breakfast bar.
Wooden wine racks install warm accents into the ice-white kitchen island. Bamboo window shades draw the wooden accent up to eye level.
Potted herbs grow along the kitchen window sill, drawing a connection with the serene view of the green garden beyond.
Huge floor-to-ceiling windows open up the garden panorama to the dining area.
Another wide walkway is lined with storage cabinets and modern bookcases.
At one end of the wooden storage run, a tall shoe storage unit installs white contrast under the illumination of LED strips.
A huge glass vase holds a display of decorative branches that complement the wooden elements in the decor scheme.

Wood slatted wall panels draw tactile ridges around the perimeter of this home interior, whilst curved counterparts smooth out external corners and edges. Round coffee tables take the curved aesthetic to the centre of the lounge space, where they nestle into the embrace of a cushiony tufted sofa arrangement.
The partition that forms the TV wall is beautifully clad in rounded wooden wall panels that form a perfect racetrack outline.
The unique partition wall largely separates the lounge from the kitchen, leaving just an open walkway on each side.
A dining island is positioned at the centre of the U-shaped kitchen arrangement, with a linear suspension light installed along its length.
Earthenware pots complement the natural wood tone of the kitchen cabinets. Black and white worktops build stylish contrast.
The sleek induction hob camouflages with the glossy black countertop.
An airy dining area is situated by the modern staircase design, which builds a dramatic, sweeping wooden backdrop. A white modern chandelier descends from the double-height ceiling void to complete the special ensemble.
The formal dining room is a cosy, wood-clad chamber with soft lighting.
A paper pendant shade complements white dining chairs, whilst the wooden dining table matches the wood-slatted walls and a deep wooden window reveal.
Inside the snug, a light sectional sofa lightly contrasts with wood-slatted walls.
A floor lamp sets a small glow alongside the couch.
The TV room carries a cooler palette of concrete grey. A floating wooden media unit is underlit with a ribbon of warm LED light to counteract the cool tone.
The wooden media shelf wraps around the corner of the room and into the window to form a simple window seat. A round coffee table draws the wooden decor element into the heart of the TV lounge, where it offsets the cool grey upholstery of a small sofa.
The rattan and wood lounge chairs are Pierre Jeanneret’s Kangaroo Chair.
A minimalist bedroom layout is given a luxurious appeal with atmospheric bedroom lighting.
A concealed LED strip runs behind the top of the headboard to highlight a limewashed wall.
Bedside storage units are integrated into the wooden headboard to achieve a streamlined look.
A black, arc floor lamp artistically coordinates with a piece of line art on the wall.
Wood panelling smartly frames a small vanity area. An arch vanity stool adds fashionable flair.
