Never underestimate the power of this subtle non-color

Fresh, clean, and modern—these are some of the words associated with white interiors. But white can do more than just make your spaces bright and airy. Here are some of them: 

1. White paint instantly updates old furniture.

Got those dated cherry-brown furniture? Give them a new life with a fresh coat of white paint. Have them distressed for a Shabby Chic or French-country vibe. 

2. White curtains filter light.

Control the amount of natural light entering the room by dressing up your window with sheer white curtains. They make a room look bright while maintaining privacy. If you want keep more light from entering the room, have another curtain installed on double rods together with your sheer white curtains so you have the option of drawing both curtains. However, if you want to completely block off light, have blackout curtains installed. Find curtains at Larry’s and at Townes, Inc.  

3. White accessories make for a whimsical vignette.

Because white works with any color, you can use white accessories basically anywhere, whether it’s a simple setup or a quaint one such as this bookshelf. Find similar accessories at Heima
