THE "ALL-WHITE ROOM"

As a lover of all things shiny, bold and colorful, I also love the look of all white rooms. Anyone can paint their walls white and add a few pieces of white furniture, but how do you add visual interest, depth and character to that room without adding very much color? Well, here's how...


White decorative molding enhances the architecture, the pendant lights add depth to this bright white hallway and the black horse statue is a playful touch to an elegant space. 

Suspending a swing from the ceiling inside this white dining area is such a fantastic {and fun} way to play with the height of the room. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the ceiling and skylight.

Add one or two colorful accents so they pop against the white backdrop. 

Displaying white and clear dinnerware on white shelves is functional and also adds an interesting architectural element to the space. 

White horizontal wood paneling adds character to the walls in this attic bedroom and brightens a space that may not get very much natural light. 

Play with different textures in an all white space...

...Or you could go totally crazy and cover all your books with white paper so your book shelf follows the white theme of your room {I love this idea, just not sure if I have the time or patience for it}.

Reflective accessories will bounce light of the white walls and add a bit of glam to the space. 

My all time favorite is the wall of empty white frames! Although not filled with art or photographs, this wall is a work-of-art on it's own. You might see something similar to this in my home in the near future!

So what do you think about the all-white room?
