White is a wonder color that brightens, enlarges and goes with any hue
Jun 27 2011
White can work wonders for any room because it goes with any accent color. It brightens a dark space, helps to make a small room look larger and it works in any season of the year.
A white-on-white color scheme works well in any season.
But this wonder color can also be a challenge if the home decorator doesn't make an effort to strike the right balance among variations of white and offset them with the right choice of colored accessories.
According to HGTV.com, home decorators should take care when selecting different tones of white for carpeting, flooring, window treatments and art to select one that complements the wall color. "Whites range from blue-tinged to red-tinged with hundreds of variations," the website warns.
It's important to create visual interest in a white room by layering different textures and patterns. One way to achieve this is through a faux paint method such as striping, ragging or combing in different tones of white.
As a window treatment, fabric roller shades are a good choice to continue the white palette, but also add some contrast in texture. By keeping the window and wall color monochromatic, home decorators create a flow of color that isn't interrupted and makes a space look larger.
