Keep Walls White and Decorate

When moving into a new home, time may not be on your side to paint.  The good news is a house can become a decorated home while keeping the walls white.   After all, it’s a well-known fact that white walls make rooms look larger. White is timeless and trendy.  Our blog today shares fun ideas on how to add color and pizzazz to a room without painting.

Kick up the color.  Area rugs add lots of color to a room.  With a large, vivid rug, it can work as the anchor for the furniture arrangement in the room.  A bold color rug can do wonders when brightening a home.

Panels that pop. Windows can shed a whole new light when using curtain panels.  Experiment with different color combinations, patterns, and window treatments to find which style fits your home best.  Curtain panels can hang on the wall, close to the ceiling, and/or all the way to the floor.

Personality and patterns.  Use furniture with different colors or patterns on them.  Adding slip covers or upholstered chairs to a room can add freshness and a new vibe to the room’s décor.
