“Safe” can also be boring. Believe me, once I started painting walls in my home I never thought I’d go back to white! But the current trend to have white walls and/or furniture is anything but boring, because it allows everything else to shine! I love a white room with pops of bright color. Somehow wood tones seem warmer, colors are more vivid, and though I never thought I’d say this, white can even be…COZY. It’s all in the accessories!
Whenever decorating it’s helpful to start with an inspiration piece, whether it be an art piece, fabric, or an area rug. Using a vintage rug from Chairish as a jumping off point, I created the following inspiration board. You can view their entire rug collection here. Of course, I love turquoise, so this rug drew me in, even though geometrics aren’t usually my thing. I brought more of my personality into the space with accessories.
I took advantage of the various blues in the rug when choosing accessories, like the Eiffel Tower art piece that mirrors those beautiful shades in the sky and water. The chevron bone inlay box was a no-brainer, and such a piece provides storage as well as decoration! To balance out the white furniture and walls and the different blues, I chose the zebra print chair in white and brown, and carried the browns through in throw pillows. The warm, rustic wood tones in the tables cozy things up. Everything pictured can be found on Chairish, except for the white and turquoise pillows which are a Target fave of mine!
Chairish is a vintage and used furniture site where design lovers can buy and sell not only furniture but decor and accessories as well!
As I was creating that board, I came across this one I made to show of the Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala, and decided that this rug would be a great fit here, too! This room is more my style, too. Either way, you can see how you can take a room from white to bright!
