Do you love a WHITE ROOM? Ever try creating your own and find that it didn't look as good as you hoped? Maybe even a little boring? Here are some tips to help you pull off this DREAMY TREND.
Don't stick to only one shade of white. MIX a few shades: Bright whites and warm whites like ivory/cream, gray whites...
TEXTURE! The texture of wood floors or a natural fiber looking carpet help this look work. In addition to the flooring. Add furnishings and accessories with TEXTURE: baskets, cane furnishings, natural wood, fringe, rugs, nubby or linen textured fabrics, gauzy drapery, etc. Use different paint textures on the walls and trim.
LAYER your accessories for a rich look. Layered bedding, throws, rugs, and more.
PLANTS (real or faux). Greenery pulls together a room like nobody's business.
Add a POP of black &/or a neutral gray as an accent color
Here are some of our favorite whites!
