While some people feel too much white in the home looks cold and uninviting, I find it makes a room bright and airy. Varying the shades of white, adding small pops of color, and including textural elements helps to keep from feeling too frosty. See more photos and tips on my blog.

  • Use varying shades of white.Steam White paint by Laura Ashley has a gray-blue undertone and is used on the walls in the dining room. Paris Gray chairs and a blue mason jar with flowers add a pop of color for added interest.
  • Creamy "Old White" paint by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a warmer color than used on the walls and is applied to the furniture like this buffet and the dining table and chairs.
  • A bamboo script mat in natural tones helps to ground the room and adds a bit of drama.
  • Natural touches like flower blossoms from a bush in the garden help add texture to an all white room.
  • Mismatched dishes in white are used for place settings. Using unmatched tableware keeps the table setting from looking too pristine.
  • More texture is included amid the white with the addition of a rusty topped vintage bottle.
