For thousands of years, humanity has held the color white to such high esteem. To many, it represents purity and innocence or even protection and encouragement.
Regardless of what it may mean to you, I believe everyone can agree that white is a classic that will never go out of style. When you incorporate white into any room, it is a great way to integrate different elements in the room together while providing a light and refreshing element.
If you are looking to pair white with other colors, I highly recommend considering soft blues, grays, or browns in order to achieve a cool and calm sensation. Clean, bright whites bring a feeling of clarity and freshness so if you’re looking to focus more on the calming sensation it brings, then choosing to do white-on-white might be a good choice for you. When you decide to do white-on-white, you also add a sense of open space and elegance to a room.
You shouldn't be afraid of combining white with bright colors either. It's a delightful way to add color and personality to a room with mostly white pieces — a way to add a pop of life to any room.
It is also a good idea to mix different patterns and textures when you choose to do white-on-white to avoid a bare look and in order to give the room character. Whichever way you decide to decorate a room, incorporating white into your color scheme is always a safe bet due to its timelessness.
