A vibrant floral pattern shared between the throw pillow and nightstand table skirt adds extra pizzazz to this blue bedroom. The room's bold palette is balanced by bright white drapes and bedding, which also provides stark contrast to the dark bed.
A dramatic striped ceiling tops this eclectic living room. The black and teal color scheme is carried down into the roman shades and reflected in the couch and chairs. The pair of brass chandeliers add a sense of glamour as do the drawn back white drapes.
As seen on HGTV's Flip or Flop Vegas, the second bedroom features a violet Vegas theme provided by Aubrey; all white bed with violet sheets and a violet wall just behind, also chrome and mirrored nightstand next to the bed along with white drapes to even the feel.
This home office space is a study in contrasts. White drapes and floating shelves pop against the exposed brick backdrop, while the sleek modern desk and traditional upholstered chair face off in a style showdown. A collection of decor and artwork add a personal touch to the eclectic space.
Two orange-tufted, high-back chairs sit against a window with white drapes. A blue throw is on the seat of one chair and a blue floral pillow is on the other chair. A small, white table is positioned between the chairs and used to display a lovely bouquet of orange tulips.
This patio area with paver stones features a wood pergola with white drapes that allow for shaded backyard relaxation. A round table with detailed black metal chairs provides a casual space for dining, while various flowering plants and a gravel area with a fire pit finish off the look of the space.
Heavy, rope-tied drapes with tasseled edge create an elegant frame over the entryway to this dresser cubby. Light reflects off the mirror dresser and catches the sheen in the white wallpaper pattern. Leopard print carpet connects the cubby to the the adjoining sitting room with small pineapple ottoman and gold chandelier with crystal details.
A bubble chandelier adds fun texture to the classy design of this transitional living room. A neutral sofa, chaise and pair of armchairs circle the room around an area rug and cube wooden coffee table. A bay window lets in natural light framed by sliding white drapes. Yellow throw pillows and touches of gray throughout the room add accent color and detail.
Spaces packed with an abundance of natural light are the best choices for using white effectively. Once the light hits the windows and is then diffused by lined window coverings, it floods the room with a visual softness that immediately creates a cozy atmosphere.
Pick up a few black paint pens at your local craft store. Draw geometric designs onto solid white ornaments. Try polka dots, stripes and even hearts. This is a great project to get the kids involved too. They’ll love to see their creations hang on the tree. Black and white ribbon is an easy way to add some personality and texture to the tree. Instead of wrapping it our the tree in a traditional manner, cut small sections of the ribbon and drape it over single branches here and there.
Benjamin Moore's “Rockport Gray" paint covers the walls in this transitional bedroom and sets a perfect backdrop for the dark velvet wingback headboard from Hickory White. Custom drapes and traditional white lamps complete the space.
