Living with a white bedroom is very, very peaceful. Imagine waking up and being surrounded by pure white…each and every morning. Not only is that a bright and beautiful way to start your day, but it’s also an almost instantly calm feeling to find yourself surrounded in white.
Your bedroom is your haven and sanctuary and the place where you go not only to sleep, but to grab some peace and quiet and escape from a hectic day. A white bedroom is just so peaceful and versatile in terms of adding accents to that white base.
How To Live With A White Bedroom
There are a few things that I think keep any white room from looking too sterile though, so here are today’s thoughts and tips.
If you are looking for sophistication in terms of paint color, my very favorite and what we have on all of our walls is Benjamin Moore White Dove (OC-17). It’s a soft white that is toned down by a very small amount of grey.
In the Scandinavian countries, an all white interior is the norm and always has been. This is due to the lack of daylight for a good part of the year. White reflects light beautifully and it’s easy to add a little bit of elegance, glamour and sophistication with white.
Your white bedroom can be bright without even having all the windows. White paint is a great way to lighten up a dark room or bedroom in any home.
A recently purchased pillow with pastel peonies adds that pop of summer pink to the bed.
Delicate and fading pink peonies on the nightstand help to add in another color on this day. It would be so simple to do with a flower arrangement in another shade as well.
White Bedroom Tips To Consider
I received this elegant French style bench from a sponsor several months ago and it’s been making the rounds around the house. It works well at the end of the bed for an extra blanket and a couple of additional pillows, but I’m not sure if I want to keep it there or move to another room.
That’s another great aspect of decorating with neutrals, shop your own home when a change is needed and move pieces around. I’m thinking of painting this…painting furniture is so much fun!
What are your thoughts, leave it or paint it?
