Make your home look more soothing and comfortable by playing with the hues of white on your wall and décor. Introduce your sitting room and bedroom to white walls, curtains, fresh white flowers and invest in good quality white linen to beat the heat, suggest experts.

Ashok Basoya - Founder Ottimo; Surabhi Kumari, Design Head of Tangerine, and Sunil Gupta, Founder & Director, ExportersIndia.com have listed ways to calm down your senses with white home décor :

* White walls and bed sheet: To add a refreshing classic look white colour is the best option. The white tones give an artistic touch to the walls. White wall paints and the radiant light coming in through the windows makes the room refreshing.

In addition nothing can beat the comfort of a white bed-sheet in the bedroom in such scorching heat. It also brightens the room and makes it look bigger and cleaner.

* White flowers: Fresh white flowers will enhance the aroma of the room and will sooth your and your guest's eyes.

* Upgrade your green plants and pair them with cool white planters and you have a home that is not just summer ready but also cool and green. Match with white wicker chairs and colourful cushions to complete the look.

* White linnen: Soft and delicate to the touch and sight, bed linen in the white can include duvet covers, sheets, pillows and bedspreads, in cottons, modals, cotton-linen, cotton-silk throughout in natural tones.

Its appearance, finishes and its seasonal on trend will change the way you rest because this cotton, modal silk and linen selection is not only cool and sophisticated but its fibre makes it best insulator -- soft and good for the skin.
