Tips for Bedrooms in Dreamy White

Although it is not my initial go-to, I have come to appreciate white walls over time. I used to perceive white walls as too sterile, impersonal and almost cold. And although chances are it won’t be splashed across my walls, I do admire people who are on a continuing quest to find that elusive, perfect white shade. 

Now if you do live in the camp of white, reveling in its airy, clean and fresh effects, you must proceed with caution. Working with white can sometimes be tricky. Sometimes it is difficult to strike the balance between immaculate and sterile.

Here are some tips with supporting pictures on how to work with white:

Tip #1. Texture: Use architectural details, fabrics and accessories to introduce texture, a critical detail when working with white. Architectural details like rough wood beams, paneling and crown molding break up the white expanse. Choose fabrics and accessories from a variety of materials like metallics, velvet, wool, sheepskin, shine, high gloss or sheer curtains.

Tip #2: Unique Accessories: Sometimes white needs a bit of flair and an injection of color. Incorporate a few vibrant accents or furnishings with personality. Unique accents demand attention and serve as a prime focal point against a white backdrop, not to mention they permit our bright, clean hue to really pop.

Tip #3: Layering: Layer pure white with off-white hues which will subtly break up the all white look. If you want a warmer palette use tans, beige and creams or if you want to go cooler, use grays, pale blues or purples. Too much crisp white can be quite monotonous and almost have a hospital like feel….nope.
