living room colour ideas yellow

have you ever wanted to decorate a room allwhite but were so scared that it was going to look cold and sterile? well, you're not alone. this is one of the common questions i getfrom clients. i want to share with you some of my top tipsfor creating a white room that looks beautiful every time. my first tip is i want you to understand thatwhite has undertones. just like every color, white has undertones. to make it simple, it basically is eithera warm undertone or a cool undertone, and


that's usually either a yellow or a blue. now, you're not going to, with the naked eye,sort of see this yellow and blue unless you start comparing them to each other, but ifyou're painting, or choosing finishes for a kitchen, it's something you really wantto take note of. are you going with the warmer undertone, orare you going with the cooler undertone? my second tip, and this will probably confuseyou from the first, is you can mix the different whites. i think sometimes people get stuck in saying,"well, i've chosen a certain type of white, and now i have to find other types of whitethat are the same to mix with it," and i say,


"no, don't do that." you actually want different types of whites,or creams, added to it. that's what adds that layering and depth. my third tip, and one of my favorite tipsfor every room but especially white so listen up, is texture. you want to add different textures to thewhite. let's give an example of a living room. say you get a white linen couch and then youwant to get chairs. well, maybe don't do a white linen chair that'sthe same, do something in a velvet.


maybe it's a cream velvet, or maybe it's awhite leather. and then, if you're having drapes and youwanted them in white, maybe you're going for a silk or, again, a different tone of thewhite. this will really help create the layers andthe texture in the room and make it not feel that cold feeling. my fourth tip, which is kind of two tips inone: if you don't want to accent with colors with your white, which is fine but, again,any color will obviously go with it, is add in greenery and add in wood tones. greenery, live plants, are great, even there'ssome great fake ones out there, but greenery


will just add that warmth and touch of nature. and then, wood tones. wood tones look so good with white. think of woods in your side tables, maybe,in your coffee table, in some accessories, and instantly it creates that warmth to awhite room. i hope this helps, and this has inspired youif you've thought about creating a white room or moving over in that direction. to help you get inspired, i've created a guideof some of my favorite white rooms, just to help you get inspired and to see the differentelements they mixed together.
