Incorporating Color in an All White Space

All-white or neutral wall colors have become popular in recent years. This is because people want a color that is inviting and that never needs to be updated. Something that will stay in style for years to come. Do you have all white or neutral walls but crave color? There are ways to achieve this without making any big purchases, like a new sofa. It involves more than just making a few minor adjustments. Here are some ideas for adding color to a room that is entirely white or neutral.

Pick the Color 

The use of color can help us to understand the environment we evolve in. Choose an accent color that can be incorporated into the space. Nothing too bright or flashy, something like green or blue. Those two colors alone have an endless number of hues. If you want a lighter feel in the room, then go with light green or sky blue. If you want a darker feel, navy blue and sage green are great options. Pick a color that you love that can be brought into the space with different accessories.

Picking Selections 

Now that you have decided on a color, let's talk about ways to integrate it into a space. Starting from the ground up, get a rug that has hints of that main color you pick. Adding throw pillows, throw blankets, curtains, or vases will bring the color from the floor to eye level. If it is a kitchen that needs color, then add dishes, kitchen towels, and glassware. This is an exciting way to add personality to the area. The best thing about adding small accessories is that they can always be changed out. Whether it's because of the season or because you've grown tired of them.

Add Something to the Walls

Adding various elements to freshen up a wall is possible. Let's talk about a method for reflecting light and the accent color you pick. Large mirrors can add interest to a plain wall. When it reflects light, it may bring warmth and make an area feel welcoming. Another choice is to choose striking artwork. A sizable piece of art can add colors and tones to the room. This will complement that dominant color. Lastly, paint one wall to serve as an accent wall. It might be a little or a large wall. Use a hue from the same color family that is a tone darker than the main walls to add a striking or subtle accent.
