The key is to emphasize the white – yes, white is hard to manage, so use it in spaces that won’t get too much wear and tear (i.e lamp shades, accent decor).White curtains are essential in creating the the soft glow and letting in tons of light.
Wall color is always safer in a neutral brown or light gray – versatile, calm, and pleasant. Leave the ceiling white and even trim, if possible.
Then, its all down to the accents! Don’t be afraid to mix browns, blacks and grays – it creates variety and they do complement each other in the room. Metallic accents are also a help – a picture frame, door knobs, or desk handles are a great start.
