The color white often provides the feeling of purity, peace, calm, cleanliness and serenity. Creating an all-white space can be challenging to some homeowners but it doesn’t have to be. While some may think an all white room is boring, there are special things you can do to create a beautiful room that is captivating.
Start with the foundation of the room, the floor. You will want to choose flooring that makes sense with the space. For example, carpet may not be the best choice for any entryway, as it will dirty or stain easily as people walk in. For a captivating focal point, go with marble tile in rooms like the master bedroom or a honed marble (not slippery) in the bathroom. The natural veining provides a luxurious appearance and adds a quick touch of color. Also consider investing in a complimentary area rug for added warmth and texture.
You can choose modern, elegant, sophisticated, casual, or any style you find attractive for the look you desire. For big furniture pieces, like a couch or bed, choose a different white shade than the floor for subtle variety. For a table selection, try glass or acrylic if you’re trying to avoid another all-white furniture piece.
Use mirrors in the room to reflect light and make the room seem larger. Placing mirrors on walls in a variety of shapes and sizes is a great accent that adds excitement to the room without directly adding color. Here’s where you can add small bits of color for a stunning pop. Add character to the room by placing complementary decor pieces such as vases, picture frames, plants / flowers and ceramic figurines. Try placing them in groups of two or three for a balanced appearance. Chic lamps or glass chandeliers will provide plenty of light as well as act as focal points throughout the room. Add a few soft textured throw blankets and pillows for a cozy feel.
Using these tips will allow you to create an all-white room that is filled with interesting textures, exciting focal points and conversational pieces. You will create a space that is filled with serenity, complexity and the ability to captivate the mind. Continue seeking white items and accessories for your all-white space until you feel it is complete and you are satisfied with the result.
