34 White Room Ideas That Are Anything But Boring

While some people might say decorating primarily with white is boring, we think that couldn’t be further from the truth. White is a vibrant and bright color with an endless number of decorating possibilities.

A white room keeps mid-century modern styles from looking dated, farmhouse style looking fresh, and sets the stage for Scandinavian design.

The decor of a room pops against white, whether keeping it simple with natural materials and neutral colors or adding bright hues for a high-energy space. An accent of wood, whether on the floor or as a piece of furniture, goes a long way to warm up the starkness of an all white space. Remember that less is more, even with a white base.

When painting a white room, consider that paints aren’t one-size-fits-all. A range of undertones in white paint can create a multitude of different looks. Benjamin Moore has over 200 shades of white, after all.

Scandinavian Meets Mid-Century

An eye-catching branching bubble chandelier and rich mid-century modern furnishings look timeless (read: not at all dated) against a crisp white backdrop.

Effortless Eichler

Talk about a clean kitchen. Soft lines of wood, both on the flooring and the ceiling, compromise the sharpness of the white cabinetry in this San Francisco classic home style.

Cozy Scandinavian Style

Inviting textures in neutral tones add comfort and style to this living room, proving that shades of brown and tan don’t have to equal boring.

Dreamy Boho Bedroom

Bohemian, mid-century, and minimalist design styles all come together to create a serene, but not sterile, space. We love the vintage-inspired dresser, and how nothing else in the room fights for attention.

Shades of Grey

Don’t underestimate how peaceful and captivating a grey color palette can be. The white base to this room allows it to remain bright and lively, while the grey tones make it livable and minimalist.

Creative Cutouts

This home takes wood detailing a step further with built-in cutouts that break up the consistency of the white walls.

Industrial Reborn

Warehouse, meet new house. The white walls and ceiling accentuate the character found in the both steel framed windows and industrial lighting of this once-factory.

Bohemian Beauty

This white bedroom features several softening details, from a sheer canopy draping from beam to bed, to the natural fiber accents in the bench, basket, and rope that give this room its hip vibe.

A Nordic Kitchen

This kitchen and dining space create their Scandinavian look with a combination of white and wood. The white paint stays dynamic with its blue undertone, while the wood remains soft and warm for the perfect balance of color and texture.

Country Living

A country kitchen gets a fresh upgrade with a coat of white, which accents details including French doors and paned glass above the cabinets.

Modern Marble

In this all-white space, a gray on white wrapped marble countertop subtly steals attention, while dark wood flooring provides a stunning color contrast.

White Water

The simple beauty of this bathroom leads the eye right to the modern soaking tub and out at a picturesque view. What makes this room really pop? It’s the black framing on the wall-sized window.

Mid-Century Entry

Four major pieces create a warm and stylish entryway that looks both tidy and lived in — the ultimate combination.

Contemporary Cohesion

Simple detailing on the white cabinetry, shiny chrome fixtures, and dark wood flooring make this white kitchen a chef-worthy space.

Minimalist Meals

This city apartment looks lavish with little, made beautiful with a few signature pieces: an oversized pendant lamp, an oak dining set. Fresh greens bring this look to life.

Wicker Wonderful

Bohemian meets minimalist in this simple space for sleeping. Island-inspired wicker furnishings bring softness to this blank canvas, paired with richly patterned bedding.

Island Life

A taste of the tropics comes thought in this neutral living room, accentuating arched French doors, rich wood beams, and a pop of green — inside and out.
