White Chalk

The classic look of white-on-white is reborn in a warmly welcomed textured, matte and chalk-like hue

Our obsession with white continues – a neutral palette that reinvents itself each season, remaining supreme in the category of timeless elegance. The rework is minimalism, but not as you know it, with artisans carving, moulding and curating items in an imperfect manner.

Tablescapes layered in organic, hand finished and matte materials are modernised with the slightest hint of cut crystal and laced with brushed metallic accents. Flowers remain light and loose, even down to just the single of stems displayed effortlessly amongst the tablescape. The lack of color is redeemed with a combination of textural materials by the layering of crockery, cut glass, metallic cutlery and hand-crafted stationery.

We recommend using a toned shade for the foundation in either ivory, ash or greige and enhancing this with any vivid white elements. If stone-like table surfaces in either marble, concrete or similar are not achievable, a textured linen cloth will suffice. Inject character and intent by incorporating a combination of white hues. The layering of shades promotes interest and further enhances the intentionally imperfect and earthen appearance.

Style Tip

When sourcing items to replicate this look and feel, look to materials made up of stone (such as marble or travertine), pure linen, matte or textured ceramics, cut crystal/glass, brushed brass and worn timber.
