Create contrast by adding a pop of color to a white décor

A white décor is the perfect starting point for a creative designer. A painter has a blank canvas to begin with that he then turns into an art piece. You have a white room that you can creatively transform by using color. A white interior décor can be very refreshing and relaxing but, in the same time, can also become monotonous. That’s why it’s good to have some color as well.

You don’t necessarily have to completely transform the room by adding too much color. Just a pop of color can be enough if you know how to use it and where the place it. Usually, the pop of color that introduce in a white room become the focal point of that area. So think carefully before you get to work. You can use a colorful centerpiece, in which case the rest of the décor should remain neutral, or you can add multiple pops of color all over the place.

In the living room, a nice contrast color would be violet. It’s both vibrant and relaxing. Other colors such as red or green are also great. You can also combine multiple colors or multiple shades of the same color and play with them. The items that can help you bring color into the décor usually include the rug, the cushions, the pendant lamp, the wall art or even furniture pieces such as the coffee table. While you get to work with a specific color, you can also try to play with different textures and patterns.{pictures from bhg}.
