Do you usually veer away from an all-white stylish bedroom? Do you fear ruining that white couch in an instant? Do you love the look of white, but it seems impossible to make it happen in your home?
If you’re like us, you may love the look of white but be unsure if your investment will last the test of time. Don’t let that stop you! Instead, read on to get pro tips from your favorite Austin furniture store — JWI. We’ve got three quick pro steps you need to take to get over your fear of interior decorating that is focused on white and start loving it in YOUR home:
In the Bedroom: Think Dreamy
There is nothing like an all-white bedroom. It evokes dreaminess, peaceful sleep and cleanliness. Get that look easily by outfitting your bed with soft white sheets, a beautiful white Down comforter and loads and loads of white pillows.
There’s no end to how dreamy you can make your bedroom just by keeping the palette on your bed white. If you need a pop of color somewhere — do that with the wall art or a rug. But keep your bed all white and get ready to sail away on the clouds of your dreams!
Stay California Cool
If you want to bring a breeziness and serenity to your living room, white accents are the way to do it. It will be just like coming in off the California coast, relaxing in a spot like no other. Slip-cover your couch with a custom white fabric that is sturdy and stain-resistant. Add white accent pillows to your chairs. Throw a fluffy white rug on the floor. Decorate your end tables with dreamy white candles or ceramic white lamps. The possibilities are endless — but remember that as you layer more white accents, you’ll be getting closer to that cool, coastal vibe.
Dress Up Any Window
Add romance to any room in your home simply by hanging long, flowing white curtains to them. You can go about this in different ways — from breezy white linen that is perfect for those summer breezes to a more elegant raw silk curtain that is perfect for a bedroom or as a backdrop to formal dining room furniture. The key is to use white to dress up your windows in a style that truly fits your interior design aesthetic. We love white because it is versatile in this way. It can feel informal and serene or formal and elegant.
Get Your Dreamy in Your Own White House
Are you ready to start decorating with white? After reading our quick guide, we hope that you are! What we love about white is that not only is it dreamy and clean — evoking peace and serenity — but it’s also fairly easy to maintain if you purchase the right assets for your home and its needs.
Obviously you don’t want a white linen couch if you’ve got a raucous group of dogs and kids — or if you are a clumsy red wine drinker! However, that doesn’t mean you can’t splash white around your home in other less-trafficked areas. Be creative and let yourself dream a little.
