With all this snow in the forecast, it’s got me thinking that – White is in Y’all! Whether it’s the snow on the ground, or the color of our wrapping paper this year, white is taking the world by SNOW storm, and we are here for it. And guys, especially paired with black this year, it is literally everywhere! White has become one of 2019’s color trends, and although 2020 is right around the corner, I have a good feeling that you are going to be seeing even more of it! Today, we’re going to show you some ways to include white into your homes!
Let’s start with the Kitchen! To incorporate white in the kitchen, think ceramic! Usually, ceramic items come in a bright white, and because of this, they bring a pop to the space like no other! The ceramic itself has an aesthetically soft appearance, which gives you double the points, so going in with some bright white, but in a soft way – AMAZING! Sometimes all white can be harsh, but pairing it with softer materials and in ways that don’t look too sterile, is the way to go. Go in with a white fruit bowl, or some white canisters, or even a spoon rest, to incorporate the color in your kitchen! If you want to go bold with white, to bring some amazing contrast to the space, especially if you have some dark countertops, try going in with an ivory backsplash!
One way to instantly bring some freshness to the bathroom is by adding a white framed mirror! White decor typically is available in a lot of rustic elements, and if you have that farmhouse dream bathroom, or want it, start with a distressed white mirror! If that’s not enough, purchase some white bath towels, and have them hang or fold upon a towel rack. White candles, white shower curtains, and white bathroom canisters – are all easy ways to introduce the color!
Pillows, pillows, pillows! I know, maybe it sounds too easy – but if we’re thinking to go in with some white, you need to add some white pillows in your decor! Since white typically means bright, starting off slow with pillows can be a very easy transition. The only way I wouldn’t suggest this is if you have a white couch – but almost any other color would offset white amazingly! Besides the pillows, go in and add a throw blanket, and DEFINITELY add some white florals into a vase! If that’s not enough, try adding an area rug with hints of white to bring out all the new white elements in the room, and to contrast the rest!
It’s time for a tablescape y’all! Adding white to your table is essential in making your dining room brighter! Start with a white or off-white table runner or table cloth, or chargers or placemats and then go towards the middle and add your favorite white elements! Whether it’s a lantern, vase, some florals, candles, a wooden sign – anything that represents you and your family would help make the perfect tablescape! If you want to really be bold, try going in with some upholstered white chairs!
Your bedroom should be the place that craves some airy and brightness most of all! One thing I love is to add some chunky knit or faux fur rugs or blankets in either over a chair or the footboard of the bed, to add that touch of coziness to the space! They usually have a natural-looking off- white color – that would be perfect for this! Other than that, going in and adding some wooden white crates that you can store blankets, or adding a tall standing white mirror frame, or even going in with a white upholstered chair if you have the space, would be perfect! If that’s too much, just start with the basics and go in with some new textiles like bedding, curtains, pillows, and even sheets! Using a white lampshade is also an awesome option!
