Decorating with White

Embrace white year-round to get a simple, classy, and functional look for any space. Take inspiration from these rooms where white is done right…

The white walls and cabinets in this kitchen provide a neutral backdrop for a rotation of color accents: a red rug, a wooden table, and, most importantly, an array of seasonal food in a variety of colors. The open shelving makes the kitchen feel spacious, and the all-white dishware adds a chic touch to the blank-canvas feel of the kitchen decor.

In a colorful room with white walls, it's important to make the walls cohesive with the room's decor. Form a strong, eye-pleasing connection between furnishings and accessories by hanging artwork that matches the color scheme. Large letters in yellow, green, blue, and black liven up the walls in this home office and tie all the elements together.

White wall art on a white wall makes an interesting and effective statement in this casual living room. The word positioned between two windows, stands out against the white wall to create an eye-catching piece of art.

White is the perfect backdrop to showcase dark furniture. A rich wood floor and dark-tone furnishings in the dining room warm up the bright white walls. 

Even the most basic storage offers visual inspiration when you sprinkle a few favorite items into the mix. This chic, mostly white living room gets pops of color from personal items. These books, vases, and random accessories bring the shelves into focus.
