White walls are no longer just for art galleries, they are seen in a lot of very modern and contemporary homes, usually paired with warm wood tones and grey, with subtle or loud pops of colour. There is a trick to it however, you can’t just paint any old room white and expect it to appear in House & Home Magazine. Having a lack of colour on your walls leaves your eyes free to wander around the room and pick up on things that may have been overlooked before. The furniture, floors, décor may now contrast drastically with the wall.
Your floors are the second largest area other than the walls so rest assured they will be noticed, make sure they are something you want guest to see. Layering is the key to bring a room together and making it feel cozy and complete. In a living room for example there are many different pieces that come together to help complete the space. An area rug, accent pillows, curtains, vases, books, lighting and accessories are all key things. So layering the white in the space is essential.
