White Living Room Ideas That Are So Fresh & So Clean
All white living rooms are probably all over your Instagram feed, and for good reason: White interior design is trending and here to stay for a while. Whether your vibes are mid-century modern or minimalistic, you can incorporate a neutral monochromatic color palette into your home no matter what your aesthetic is. And there's no better room to try out the trend than in your living room. The space where you relax with a book or your favorite TV show should feel serene, and you can achieve a sophisticated space with just a few tricks. Here are some living room ideas that will help you achieve all of your white interior design aspirations.
Mix Up Textures
The easiest way to style monochromatic colors without it all blending together is to mix up the textures. For example, a fuzzy blanket, like this on top of a sleek sofa or a clean glass coffee table over a shag rug can make an all-white living room more visually interesting. Layering different textures not only adds variance to your white living room, but can also make identical shades of white look completely different.
Incorporate Other Neutral Colors Into The Scheme
If you're looking for other living room decor ideas that will help break up the monochromatic white color scheme, add in other neutral colors into the palette. Shades like ivory, beige, tan, and light gray will help you maintain the white living room that you want, but will add depth to the overall look of the space. Even colors like pale pink, patterns like marble, or textures like Venetian plaster all make a tiny difference in how cohesive a monochromatic white room looks. Pro tip: Decide whether you want the color palette to read warmer or cooler and that will help determine which additional shades you factor into your color scheme. For example, tan and beige will read warmer, while gray will read cooler.
Be Consistent With The Color Of Hardware Accessories
In the same vein, the hardware you pick for your living room will add variance to the monochromatic scheme, too. Gold, copper, and bronze will read warmer, while silver and chrome will appear cool-toned; black can pair with either. Depending on what you decide on for the color scheme, the hardware choice will help complete the look of your white living room. Curtain rods like this Marble Curtain Rod from CB2 area great for pulling together marble and metal details. Just make sure you keep all of the hardware consistent throughout the room to ensure its cohesiveness.
Really Commit to the Color Scheme
This probably sounds obvious, but if you're rounding up monochromatic living room design ideas, really commit to the color scheme. The only way that it'll work and look intentional is if you really lean into your all-white living room.
