15 White Room Ideas That Are Anything But Boring
While some people might say decorating primarily with white is boring, we think that couldn’t be further from the truth. White is a vibrant and bright color with an endless number of decorating possibilities. A white room keeps mid-century modern styles from looking dated, farmhouse style looking fresh, and sets the stage for Scandinavian design. The decor of a room pops against white, whether keeping it simple with natural materials and neutral colors or adding bright hues for a high-energy space. An accent of wood, whether on the floor or as a piece of furniture, goes a long way to warm up the starkness of an all-white space. Remember that less is more, even with a white base. When painting a white room, consider that paints aren’t one-size-fits-all. A range of undertones in white paint can create a multitude of different looks. Benjamin Moore has over 200 shades of white, after all. Enjoy these white room ideas!
