In my recent post about my foyer makeover you may have noticed that I painted my entire foyer and hallway all white—both the walls and the trim are white. I plan to paint almost all of the walls in my house the same white color. I also painted the walls white in the last four room makeovers I did. In case you can’t tell, I’m a fan of white walls! But my love for white isn’t limited to just wall color. I also love white decor, white cabinets and white linens.
For me, I’m drawn to the color because it gives a fresh, clean, bright and open feel to any room. And I’m sure I’m not the only fan out there. White has been a very trendy and popular color for awhile now. From all-white kitchens to white rugs to white furniture, it seems to have taken over a lot of design elements.
However, white can be a tricky color to decorate with because it’s easy for it to become boring, sterile or flat. But it doesn’t have to be! Today I’ll share the tricks on how to keep white from becoming stale in your decorating. Read on…
One of the most effective ways to keep white from looking flat is to use white elements that also have texture. The texture adds interest and depth which keeps the room from becoming boring.
You could try adding a textured lamp base or vases to your decor.
Or take plain white walls and spice them up with some molding like I did in my daughter’s bedroom.
White plank floors add texture and character to any room.
Use a fur throw or knitted blanket to add a layer of texture to your white bedding.
