Most of us shy away from decorating our homes with lots of white, be it kids or pets or the fear of having a boring, bland looking space. However, white doesn’t necessarily mean uninteresting. On the contrary, white has a unique versatility that makes it the perfect canvas for lots of possibilities. White rooms come to life with the right accessories from hardware and fabric to plants and greenery. Metals like iron and brass blend perfectly with white, while warm woods and leather create a striking contrast.
I particularly love how gold hardware on glossy white cabinets create a warm glow.
Another way to make white interesting is to layer different shades of it. Believe it or not, there are hundreds of different whites, from warmer yellowish ones to cooler, blueish shades. Any color has a white version of it.
Varying patterns, textures and finishes adds depth and interest. All white rooms share a soothing, serene quality and make it easier to switch out your decor simply by switching out the accessories. Here are some rooms that prove white can be oh so right!
What are your thoughts on decorating with white? Love it or hate it? Have a great rest of the week!
