The new year is a perfect time to add some winter whites into your home to create a fresh, clean look. However, white decor isn’t the easiest to keep clean, especially with kids and pets. So rather than opting for a big, white couch, HGTV suggests incorporating the winter neutral with one of these elements instead:
Lighting Accents: White diffused light fixtures or a sculptural statement lighting piece can be the perfect pop of white in any room, and will create a cozy glow in darker
Painted Brick: Rather than all-white walls, painting a brick fireplace or accent brick wall can make a space seem larger and brighter. Plus, they will allow for other
color pairings throughout the room.
Texture and Patterns: Add touches of white with a faux-fur throw or rug in the living room, or layer different patterns, such as
a duvet and pillows in the bedroom. These items will add depth to a space, and they can be easily removed or washed if anything is ever spilled on them.
White linen drapes are not only great accent pieces, they help diffuse outside light and are easy to clean.
White Carrara marble is a beautiful accent, but it comes with a large price tag. Rather than have the entire kitchen or bathroom outfitted, choose a smaller area, such as a breakfast nook or vanity, to fit the space and your budget.
