I tend to be drawn to interiors with white walls, a mix of old and new furnishings, and bright accessories. It also happens to be a pretty practical way to decorate: invest in a neutral foundation that will never feel dated and spruce it up with new art, decor, and lighting as the seasons — or your tastes — change.
Take my apartment, for example. I always get Instagram comments about how bright and colorful it is, which makes me happy because 1) I love color but 2) the color comes from pieces that I didn’t spend nearly as much on and will have fun restyling in many homes to come. In other words, I spent most of my budget on a beige sofa, a white dining table, white dining chairs, etc. and layered in colorful art, books, and pillows as I collected them. That’s not to say that I don’t stumble upon interiors I love with navy walls or an emerald green sofa, but I really do think mixing white furniture and bright decor will let me reinvent my space time and again without actually having to replace the biggest and most expensive pieces every time I move.
Do you share my love of white interiors and colorful decor? Oh and I’d love to know: what’s the color palette in your home?
