"White pottery goes with everything," says interior designer Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson of Terracotta Design Build. "White pottery is always a great investment because it looks good forever. It doesn’t have to be expensive to pack a punch."
In this bright, natural light-filled home, color comes from the accessories: artwork, books, even plants and bowls of fruit! The bonus of this setup is that it can easily be switched up as moods and seasons change.
Chair rail molding divides two-toned walls in this neutral dining room. Sheer curtains and white blinds feel crisp and airy against the dark hardwood floor and black dining table. Fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit add a refreshing splash of color.
Shiny marble countertop and white cabinets provide a clean backdrop for the metallic refrigerator, sink, and hanging lights in this Transitional kitchen.

A stainless steel apron front sink is offset by glass-front kitchen cabinets and a window garden in the Paz family kitchen redesigned by Abby Vasek, Anne Rue and Brooks Atwood on HGTV Star Season 8. Cheery potted plants and a bountiful bowl of fruit add life to the neutral countertop and backsplash.
This small kitchen uses a retro black mini fridge, a small fitted stove and a combination of cabinets and open shelving to be fully functional without feeling claustrophobic. Natural light floods in from the window and bounces off the bright white walls, ceiling and marble countertop. Bowls of fruit and a collection of fresh flowers bring natural color to the room.
A trio of brown fabric chairs surround a round dining table decorated with a metallic bowl and scattered fruit. A chandelier hanging from a wood paneled ceiling adds to the ambiance of the sophisticated, yet casual dining room.
White cabinets and black kitchen appliances pop against the gray paint and gray subway tile on the walls of this Traditional kitchen. Bowls of fresh fruit on the marble countertop add a splash of color against the grays and the neutral tile floor.
A little color goes a long way in this predominantly gray dining room. Two white pendants illuminate the dining table while a pair of floor lamps flank a colorful abstract painting in vibrant oranges and blues. Staging with fresh flowers and bowls of colorful fruit bring additional splashes of color to the room.
