Here's a smart idea for your white living room. The possibilities are endless when you use white as the base of your color palette for your living room furniture. In the living room, white walls keep the space from becoming too dark from the rich hues of the furniture and beams.
There is nothing quite as restful on the eye as the purity of a fresh white interior space. Coming home to an uncomplicated white living room decor scheme can bring you peace and serenity after a day away in a world that is visually cluttered with an endless confusion of colour. A plain scheme is like a cool calming breath of fresh air. If a lounge devoid of colour doesn’t appeal to you, then decorating the room to have a pure white backdrop also gives you the perfect canvas on which to splash a selection of brighter furniture and accessories that you can change out easily at will.
