    White will never go out of style as a house colour. “I do really love whites – they often help to make a home feel grander, while keeping it clean and simple so that the architecture stands out,” says Rennie. When choosing between warm and cool whites, take your cues from the style of your home: cool whites bring out the colonial charms of Edwardian and Victorian homes, while warmer tones add romance and grandeur to Federation styles. Grey-based whites enhance the minimalist styling of mid-century or contemporary architecture. Add depth to an all-white scheme by applying different strengths of the same colour. Use a double-strength version on the walls and half- or quarter-strength of the same shade for the trim. This prevents the whiteness from looking too sterile and gives the architecture a subtle lift. Tip: “White shades do differ depending on the undertones and on the aspect where they are placed,” says Lucena-Orr. “A white in full sun will look quite different to the same white in the shadow of the pergola. It’s also worth remembering that surrounding colours such as gardens, and neighbouring colour schemes, can impact how the white looks.”
