There is no question that I love white. White furniture, white tops, and especially white walls. When we moved into our house half of it was covered in wallpaper and the other half was a beige off-white color. The first thing we did take down all the wallpaper and give the whole house a fresh coat of white paint. It made a world of difference. But as we moved in and began decorating, I noticed that some of the rooms felt too cold. White walls provide a blank canvas and a clean feeling, but sometimes it can feel too clean. Below are some tips for warming up a space and making your white room cozy as ever!

 Add details to the walls. Shiplap is all the rage right now, and there’s good reason for it. You can have a simple white room, but the shiplap brings a whole new layer of fun! You can also play around with paneling. I love the variety of modern options at CSI 3D Wall Panels.

Bring in a colorful rug. If you’ve been following my blog, you know this is one of my favorite ways to bring color to a room. I am a sucker for pink rugs specifically. I love how you can go so many different directions with a room, depending on what rug you choose.

A pop of color with pillows. Pillows are an inexpensive way to really liven up a white room. When picking your pillows, opt for colorful, large pillows to really make the space feel full.

Add texture. You can do this with your pillows, rugs and blankets, but I also adore wall tapestries. Even if you choose a neutral color, the warmth of the yarn and materials will really warm up a room.

Paint your ceiling a soft, neutral color. If you are like me and love keeping all your walls white but you feel like the room needs a little extra “umph”, consider painting the ceiling a soft color. I love how my friend Stephanie painted her baby girl’s nursery ceiling a beautiful blush. It adds so much to the room a makes it feel so much more colorful!

Incorporate greenery. When all else fails, add plants. You can never go wrong with a few extra plants in a space. It’s amazing the difference that they make. They bring in a whole new element of color, without clashing or drawing room much attention away from the other pieces in a room. They instantly bring a room to life!

I have absolutely loved incorporating these tips in our home, and I hope that you will too! Thank you so much for stopping by!!
