Choosing a white palette is one of the freshest and most exciting décor decisions you can make. Absolutely anything and everything goes with it, and it’s not as one-dimensional as one might think. Read on for how best to style a white room.

Choose the right color

White is commonly thought of as just one shade, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, white comes in literally hundreds of different shades, from warm to cool. It all depends on the lighting in the room. For a very sunny room, a cooler shade would work best, while a room that is artificially lit or small would be better off with warmer hues closer to beige and cream. Think about what furniture and accessories you want in the room to help you decide which shade to choose. It’s worth it to remember that not all whites go together.

Add a pop of color

Against a clean, neutral background, even a small pop of color can look fantastic. An all-white kitchen can be perfectly finished off with a few strategically-placed neon pendant lights to warm up the room and make it feel more welcoming.
