Play Tricks With Color On Your Room

With so many brilliant possibilities for paint and materials nowadays, all-white spaces can feel dull and sterile for some of us. But there is a simple compromise for colour fans who enjoy the crisp sense of white Add a splash of colour. Sticking to a consistent, bold colour in white chambers creates a statement that can’t be overlooked. From master bedrooms to kitchens, all-white rooms make the perfect canvases to get a pop of originality.

Accent with your favourite colour. You have taken a bold leap into all-white decoration, painting the walls, floor and furniture white. But don’t stop there. Add a few splashes of your favourite colour round the space, and observe your space come alive. Try to spread out your accents: The more spots of colour you use, the more the eye will wander around the space.

Concentrate on wall artwork. Stark white walls, absolute white cloths and sleek white furniture make this room feel like a luxury hotel room, but it is the picture on the wall that immediately catches your attention.

Take a risk and hang a popular, vibrant piece of artwork on a single wall in your living area. Hunt for something big and bold at the local galleries and studio tours, online art vendors, antique shops and even thrift shops.

Paint your furniture. Painting furniture is a simple and affordable way to immediately update a space. This chamber glows in all white, but the punchy turquoise dresser adds cheer into the serene space.

Experiment using something cheap, like a funky bit you located at a local garage sale. A gallon of paint and some new hardware is all you need to create an instant conversation piece.

Embrace organic finishes. The painted furniture look does not suit all of us — particularly in the event that you want to maintain your antique or inherited furniture. Simply let your furniture’s natural timber finish stand out on its own; the warm color works just like a splash of bold colour. Here, this gorgeous corner cupboard steals the show, anchoring the space using its natural cherry finish.

Play cloth. I love the expression of white kitchens, but sometimes they can feel too plain and devoid of character. It’s easy to add style without switching out any significant materials. This kitchen does a fantastic job of playing blues in the soft window treatment, upholstered barstools and counter accents for a cohesive look.

Paint your own ceiling. Can not figure out where to put a splash of color in your living area? Look up! Paint your ceiling to get a fresh, new look.

This bright canary yellow ceiling makes the entire room come alive. This paint application would work with pretty much any color, but be careful once you pick your sheen. A glossy finish may reflect light around the room a lot of; a matte or eggshell finish may do the job better.


Emphasize staple furniture pieces. Matching white seats would have made this all-white room look too washed out. I love this homeowner chose a different strategy and selected bold chairs that immediately place this design aside. If you’re ready to embrace this style, using a bright reddish hue similar to this will definitely turn your white space in an immediate showstopper.

Pay attention to tiny details. This room seems all white from floor to ceiling at first glance, but it does have some tiny timeless details that make all of the difference. The small band of green onto the mattress’s coverlet coordinates with the pillow on the seat and the organic components outside.
