I was driving through town last week and noticed how many apartment building there were. Not only existing buildings, but a lot of new buildings are under construction. That's when it hit me - an enormous number of people are living with white walls. And most of those can't paint them any other color.
So just what can you do when you are stuck with white walls and still have a home that looks amazing? I have come up with 3 tips that will help you.
- Think of your white walls as a blank canvas. All of your artwork will stand out when placed on a white wall. Your eye will naturally go to the artwork so it gets noticed. Having some awesome artwork will help.
- Do a white-on-white palette. White furniture with white walls can create an elegant look. Worried about keeping it clean? Try faux leather or suede or slip covers if you have pets or children.
- Use patterns and textures to bring warmth and interest to the room.
White is the color associated with new beginnings, purity and innocence. It can make your home feel fresh and clean. Don't be afraid to embrace your white walls and use them to your advantage.
