How to Use White in Your Interior Design Theme

White, a color that’s clean, simple and classic. Some might call it boring, but this neutral tone can do a lot for a room. Consider embracing the winter season and adding winter white elements into the interior design theme throughout your home. Here are some simple ways you can incorporate white into your home this season.

White Walls

Wall Paint

Starting with the base of the room (the walls) is essential if you want to create a monochromatic white theme in a room. You’ll need to decide if you want to go with a warmer white for a more yellow tone or with a cooler white, which would give you a bluer tone. Once you’ve covered your walls in white, you can consider how you’ll add other elements into the room to create a cohesive look.

White LInens


There’s nothing more crisp than white linens. Be sure to wash them frequently to prevent yellowing so that the color stays fresh and bright. You can warm up this sometimes sterile look by adding fur throws, rugs and other textured elements to add some depth and variety to the room. This Dream Shag Rug will do the trick.

White Kitchen


A kitchen is the perfect place to use a white theme because it’s a place typically associated with clean, functional design. Add a couple of white barstool chairs, paint cabinets white and go with a white backsplash for a unified, simple kitchen design.

White Furniture


White furniture can truly pull together a room’s theme. Go the Victorian route with white wooden bed frames, dressers and end tables. This Ava Side Chair will go with your Victorian theme. Or, go the modern route with plastic and steel chairs and tables.

From white walls to accent pieces to furniture, there are so many ways to embrace this super clean color trend. How will you use white in your interior design theme? Let us know!

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
