White Open Plan Transitional Kitchen With Tulips
In a white kitchen, it's helpful to incorporate texture as it visually breaks up the stretches of cabinetry and walls. Glass-front cabinet doors and granite countertops do the job nicely in this pretty kitchen.
Neutral Transitional Home Office With Architectural Details
Arched built-in bookcases complement the arched window in this home office, providing eye-catching architectural details. The neutral transitional room features a minimalist aesthetic for a clutter-free, productive workspace.
The simple canopy bed features a tufted gray headboard and is flanked by elegant white nightstands and traditional sconces. The locally-made master bedroom furniture is made from all-natural and eco-friendly materials, including sustainably-farmed hardwood, no glues and low-VOC paint.
Paneled Accent Wall Adds Interest to White Bedroom
Paneling behind the bed creates immediate texture and interest, establishing an understated focal point in this crisp white bedroom. A bold orange reading lamp with a flexible arm offers a vibrant splash of color.
Lots of windows and a bright white palette make this bedroom friendly and inviting. Pops of color come from the two blue bedside lamps. The look gets additional depth from patterns: black-and-white pillows, the curtains and one cool-looking couch.
Family-Friendly Dining Nook With Large Framed Portraits
This family-friendly breakfast nook is designed to feel warm and relaxing. The high-gloss white finishes on the floors, furnishings and even the window treatments help reflect the natural light. The space-saving round table creates a more casual environment, and oversized photos make a statement that family is at the heart of this home.
Transitional Living Room With Wrought Iron Chandelier and Whitewashed Fireplace
This living room features a whitewashed fireplace with a dark wood mantle. White ceramic vases sit on top of the mantle, while a mirror hangs above. A natural wood coffee table and sisal area rug are positioned in front of a tan sofa with colorful pillows. A wrought iron chandelier provides a finishing touch.
Transitional Kitchen With Industrial-Country Flair
Designer Lindsay Chambers sought to update a classic kitchen with an industrial-country approach. The chevron patterned backsplash adds drama and depth to the small space, while white and gray cabinets give the room a rural vibe. And who wouldn't love the wrought iron and repurposed wood barstools?
"I love gray — I think I always will," says interior designer Lexi Westergard. "However, I am definitely using it differently than I have in the past. I still love it for bathroom cabinet colors, pillows, rugs and accents. I am loving more of a greige or white for wall colors. I think this year we will see white as the dominant, go-to neutral color for walls."
If bright white walls are a bit out of your comfort zone, try a warm gray tone that’s light enough to almost look white, like Lexi did in this living room. She chose Benjamin Moore’s Classic Gray, one of her favorite paint colors.
