All White Decor – Mix Up Your Color Palettes!

By: Decorated Life Team |

White decor is still very popular on the decorating hit list of so most people. Why is that? Apart from looking clean – people often want a blank canvas to help them unwind each night. With so much going on – white is nice! But add white to other color palettes like slate grey, oatmeal or a touche of lime and you have a new uber look.

All white decor color palettes with touches of black and grey flannel is pristine, clean and stark. The truth is color looks 30% brighter against an all white wall, white wallpaper and white decor. And natural color palettes fit in so beautifully.

Personally, I like mixing it up.. adding other color palettes to all white walls. Splashes of color, texture and wood add warmth to white decor. Miles of white walls and white wallpaper is meditative but without layering in some warmth it can be stark.

So add small touches of warmth – even small accents, layered until you get a beautifully balanced room. Please leave a comment!
