Sometimes, when decorating a home, using a single color can be a lot more interesting than using multiple hues. However, one concern that a lot of us may have with this is “How can I make my home look interesting if I only want to use one color?” Even if you choose to stick to just one hue, there are plenty of ways to spice up your home. Learn how you can liven up an all-white space, taking inspiration from this stunning Scandinavian-inspired condo unit in Quezon City.

Touches of wood

A notable element of Scandinavian design is wood in light-hued finishes. This home stays true to that aesthetic with the usage of wood in the different pieces it features, such as the stools, the coffee table, the ledges, and even the decorative items, like the deer head mounted on the wall.

Plants

There is truly nothing like pops of green to breathe life (literally) into any room. From tiny succulents to larger hanging greens, your pristine white space will benefit greatly from the beauty that plants have to offer.

Personalized décor


What better way to infuse some personality into your space? You can use customized signs, framed photographs, and small figurines as décor—it all depends on your taste and on the look you want to achieve. The homeowner of this condo unit chose to create a simple yet clever display of Polaroid shots he took from his travels abroad, adding Scrabble tiles that spell out the initials of those places.

Texture


Using a variety of textures is a fool-proof way of making a room look more exciting, especially if that room uses a single color all over. This home features a faux fur throw pillow and throw blanket casually draped over the rocking chair, adding plenty of visual interest to the space. The homeowner also used a whimsical textured lighting fixture.

Prints


Cute prints are also great for breathing personality into any home. In an all-white space, you can use prints and patterns to inject some visual interest, or many even a little bit of color. For this unit, the homeowner chose throw pillows with brightly-colored designs, as well as a rug featuring a map of the world for the living area.
