A white sofa can be chic, sophisticated, and—most certainly—stunning. Whether your style is traditional or ultra-modern, white furniture is one of the most versatile color schemes for any décor. Like a blank canvas, white can be transformed with the addition of coordinating colors, accessories, and textures.
7 Ways to Style a Room with White Furniture
You don’t need to be afraid of a white or neutral palette. You may think, ‘But won’t it get dirty?’ or ‘It’s so dull.’ Let’s dispel some of these negative associations. Here are seven decorating ideas to achieve a timeless look with white furniture that never goes out of style.
Choose a Palette
No matter what style of furniture selected for your room, it’s important to establish the space you have to work with. Consider the color of your floors, the lighting, and the overall palette of the room. White furniture offers unlimited possibilities.
But first, decide on a “feel” you want to create that reflects your personality. Above, a beautiful off-white sectional, dark floors, and subtle touches of contrasting color used throughout the room are combined to create a dramatic, relaxed setting.
Select an Area Rug for Color
White leather furniture stands the test of time. Bring out the beauty of pure white with contrasting color hues by introducing bold, patterned area rugs, cushions, and coordinating wall colors. Depending on your space, the addition of matching pieces and an ottoman creates a sophisticated, yet open and inviting vibe. The introduction of cool chrome metallic accessories exemplifies the fresh feel of this room.
Use Texture to Add Visual Interest
For that perfect loft, nothing is more appealing than modern white leather. To bring a sense of warmth and comfort to a space, introduce textures such as faux fur pillows, throws, natural wood, and complementary upholstered pieces.
Add Some Glam to Bedrooms
Why limit white furniture to the living room? Add a white upholstered headboard with matching sofas and loveseats for a truly glamorous look. Bold artwork, linens, and coordinating accessories in a rich color scheme of jewel tones bring the bedroom together creating a refined atmosphere.
Picture It: Pillows and Patterns
Contemporary white furniture is the perfect backdrop to play with colorful cushions and patterns. When working with a chosen palette, mix and match the hues throughout the room. Consider painting an accent wall in one of the dominant contrasting colors.
Define Your Small Spaces
Nothing is more adaptable for a small space than a gorgeous white loveseat. To enhance the size of the room, neutral wall colors and glass accessories work to keep the space airy. Simple, elegant, and less is more is the perfect combination for small spaces.
Don’t be afraid to be original. Black and white is a bold, classic style that can either be cool and eclectic or modern and chic. Brook’s selection of accessories in lamps, artwork, cushions, and rugs offer endless possibilities to be creative and express your personal style.
