There's a reason the classics became the classics - they've stood the test of time. Bright white - crisp and clean and bright as snow - is a classic for all things interior: from wall color to window coverings to finishing touches like plants, pots, and paintings. Bright white brings light and space into a room naturally and confidently. But whether you're a minimalist with an affinity for stark neutrals and blank walls or a traditionalist with a need for art and texture, working with white as your base in a space can be tricky to maneuver. Allow us to help light the way into working with white in your home, whatever your style!
Bright walls might have a "woke up like this" brilliance, but that doesn't mean your whole room can go au naturel. To spice up an all-white palette, sprinkle in one statement piece - like a boldly painted wall, a large framed painting, or a daring printed wallpaper.
All white is a standalone classic that will never die. But how do you modernize your space to give it a cool and current touch? Infuse your room with metals. They're quiet enough to be neutrals, but have the goods to add texture and trendy appeal that may be missing from a blank white canvas.
Keep your space from looking cold with a bold pattern or color theme. These stamps of personality will give your space the individuality it's craving, making it more inviting and less intense.
Collectors, rejoice! If you're often puzzled by the question of which of your paintings, trinkets, or baubles to put on display, wonder no more. All-white interiors give you the freedom to present all of your cherished decor - with the added benefit of making your space feel homey and warm.
You know what works great with white interiors? A whole lot of light. Going all white in rooms that get tons of sun is the perfect pairing. Your room will instantly feel brighter, lighter, and full of space.
If you're not one for loud gestures of texture and print to shake up your all-white space, opt for a style that will creep up on you with its understated but unbelievably chic swagger. The dark to white's light, black will throw your bright space a curveball, giving it a punch of power that's easy to implement.
