Classic & Timeless White Rooms

My good friend Lisa asked me to give her some ideas on an "all white theme" room.  I did some research and found so many inspiring ideas that I decided to blog about it.

A beautiful classic white room is so chic & sophisticated!  Best way to pull it off is to incorporate different textures and have great lighting.  The room will glow with natural lighting.  Starting with your basic furniture, a white sofa, white tables, and etc.  Then comes the accessories.  I would look for textures in pillows, rugs, mirrors, lamps, and chandeliers. 
Also, go for varying shades of white - that means ivory, nearly cream and very pale greys.  These will all add depth and interest to the scheme.  Don't forget about the walls.  You don't have to stick with the traditional white walls.  Add white panels, crown moldings, and my favorite- wall paper!  There are endless types of wall paper that will make your room pop.  Just think "texture, texture!"

This room is gorgeous because it has all the right elements!


An elegant dining room

A beautiful & luxury bedroom- look at all textures!  Ranging from the chandelier, rugs, curtains, and fabrics.

Love the tufted headboard, mirror night stand and crystal lamp.

Lovely white furniture and love the white paneling on the walls!

  1. I love your style! I also have an addiction to zerba print (and white, and mirrors...) - very Hollywood Regency :)


  2. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
