Not many people would consider having a white living room when they think about decorating it. They might think of decorating it in different shades of colors from blues to pinks to greens etc for instance, but white, probably not. But the color white brings calmness and magic that no other color can create. The color white gives a new dimension to any space as the color itself illuminates light and it can give a different touch to any other color as well.
The look that you can create when you decorate a room in white is amazing and it is something that is hard to create with any other color. White is also a universal color. But you should be careful with the color white though, as too much white can make the room look depressing but if done carefully, it will look elegant.
So having decided that you are going to decorate your living room in white, then the first thing you should do is to choose a theme as the theme is what will help you choose the colors of the room. Adding any color to an all-white room will really stand out and use the K.I.S.S. rule when adding color.
The key to decorating with the color white is to vary tones, textures, patterns and shapes, and perhaps mix white with colors like ivory or taupe to make a contrast in an all-white room.
The base color of the furniture should be basic and something that totally matches with the white color. For instance, the sofas can have a brown color base if you want an earthy look or a neutral base color if you want to create a European look.
Moreover, you can add different kinds of furniture items like coffee table, cabinets, cushions and pillows in the room using shades that will blend well with the theme as well as the color white. You can also add plants and natural life to the room.
The following breathtaking pictures illustrate clearly how you can benefit from this arrangement of decor.
