Tips and Tricks: Decorating With White This Summer
Posted on July 24 2018
It’s heating up outside, but you can cool off inside by making one simple change to your home décor—incorporating the color white! Whether you go all out and create an all-white room or you just add some white accessories, you’ll be amazed at how fresh and clean your home will feel by including this color. Here are some Tips and Tricks to get you started.
1. Paint your walls. There’s nothing more invigorating than an all-white palette to spark your creativity. Don’t be afraid to paint over brick and paneling, in fact, the more texture underneath the white paint the more stylish your look!
2. Consider white living room furniture. Neutral colors work best for long-lasting, more expensive items, like sofas, sectionals, and even bookcases, because they’ll never go out of style, and you can create temporary pops of color around them via flowers, pillows, and other accents.
3. Brighten up with a white rug. A white rug creates a simple, clutter-free backdrop for your room, allowing you to decorate in any style that you want, whether that’s Classic Home, Refined Mix, or Bungalow, it goes with anything.
4. Splurge on white bedroom furniture. Imagine waking up in a cheerful, no-mess bedroom, like the ones in the pictures below? In the first picture, the antique white finish successfully produces a beach side look that’ll make your bedroom a relaxing getaway. In the second picture, a luxurious, white tufted headboard is the perfect backdrop for a glamorous oasis.
We know it’s hot outside, but your home can feel whatever temperature you want it to, depending on the mood you set. We hope that this week’s Tips and Tricks inspires you to bring summer white into your home décor, cooling it off and refreshing it as we move towards fall.
