White With A Pop

In most cases, you'll find yourself stuck with stark white walls if you are living in an apartment or a rental property. Rental communities and landlords always seem to stick with the basic and bland "builders white" paint colors for every room. Which brings up the age old question... What do you do with the white walls? How do you make them look pretty? Growing up I always wanted crazy colors for my room. Since then, I've learned to love the look of those stark white walls and embrace the bright and blank canvas that comes with such a space. Check out a few different spaces that might inspire you to get creative with those stark white walls!

A few things to think about when trying to bring pops of color into a white space:
  • Don't be afraid to mix wood tones & color together
  • Don't be afraid to mix multiple colors
  • Colorful Artwork is an easy way to bring color into the space
  • Add a colorful upholstery piece to brighten up the space
  • Textiles such as rugs, curtains or pillows are an easy, fool proof way to bring in color
  • Don't be afraid to layer white on white (but don't forget to still add color!)
