White and Bright

July 6, 2015

White is my all time favorite wall color. My parents think I am a plain Jane with white walls, but I think you can do more with blank walls than a colored wall. I like white, because it is so easy to make the room bright and colorful with accessories and decorations. Plus, the blank walls make the space appear more open. I have a small room, so white walls definitely help to open up the space. For making your living space brighter, I love adding pillows. Pillows, pillows, pillows. I am quite the hoarder. Pillows are a great way to add color and mix patterns. Do not be afraid to mix patterns. The secret to mixing patterns is:
1. Choose a geometric pattern ( ikat, stripes, ect.)
2. Choose an organic pattern ( floral, abstract, ect.)
3. Small to large scale of pattern
That truly is all you have to do to master mixing patterns.
If you would like me to do a whole post about mixing patterns, definitely let me know! I would love to write that up for you all.
