I've Come Over to the Light Side | 10 Bedroom with White Walls, But Not Lacking Color

via

I've always been a live-in-saturated-color kinda gal. My childhood bedroom was yellow. Then hot pink. Followed by orange. Eventually a beautiful deep shade of turquoise. I grew up confined by walls that my mom and grandmother painted red, purple, yellow, and pink. But except for the one time I lived in an apartment I could paint (and painted the lovely Anonymous gray by Sherwin Williams) I've gotten used to the idea of white walls. I've finally come over to the light side.


But only upon moving into my new apartment have I actually bought into the idea. Maybe it's because of the way the white walls let the wood floors and trim take the spotlight. Maybe it's just the right creamy shade of white that I needed all along. Either way. For the first time in my life, I'm actually not complaining about not being able to paint the walls. I'm actually excited about the white walls. (And for the first time, I'm not just saying that!)

My girl Rachel^ knows her stuff.

The above photo sums up everything I'm excited about in my space. White walls. Wood floors. White furniture. And pops of the vibrant, rich hues that I love to surround myself with. (Just because I may have finally bought into the whole white wall thing doesn't mean that I've sold out on the colored end of the spectrum.)

Throw in some floral patterns, vintage artwork, and industrial lighting... and the white walled space starts to take on a cozy, bohemian feel.  And I'm always down with the boho vibes.

It doesn't even have to be pops of multiple color to awaken a white-walled space. The mustard yellow and subtle touches of red, orange, and teal in this chic, tranquil bedroom make a big statement.

But sometimes (as is often in my life) more is more. More pattern. More colors. More flowers. This girly bedroom space is uber pretty.

White walls really live up to their splendor in rooms filled with sunlight.  A bright white room is so much more pleasing than a dim one, don't you agree?

White can also let painted furniture take center stage. The mint green headboard in this bedroom subtly stands out against the white wall. A brighter, bolder headboard would really pop!

Simple, chic, and crisp. A white backdrop allows ever-evolving decorators to change up their color scheme and decor style easily.

I really love the vibrant floral rug in this white room. The pillows, rug, and copper fans stand out among the white walls, bedding, and background of the rug.

A bunch of books add a lot of color, too!


What do you think? Have you always been a lover of white walls? Were you a color lover who finally came around to the idea of a white backdrop - like me? Or are you committed to the idea of colored walls and stubbornly set in your ways?
