White can be both cool and invitingly warm, so all four seasons can be illustrated by this color alone in the home decor. When you start with indoor flooring, you find that white plank flooring has a warm, inviting effect. White marble, on the other hand, looks rather cool. Structures and textures also show this effect very clearly because they are, so to speak, the secret of white interiors. In spring and summer, white flowers and fine fabrics such as silk and cotton are preferred. In autumn and winter on the other hand - the cuddly, cream-colored fabrics made of wool and cashmere.
