BOOKMARK

Are you staring at your four white walls, wondering what magic can be done to it? Before you reach for that paint brush, hear us out. The main beauty of the white walls is its readiness to take on inspirations and ideas from all corners. In fact, white walls are so versatile that you can create almost any style or look which you desire.

So to better illustrate the attractiveness of a white wall, we have found 6 different style-spirations within the Qanvast app that might just convince you to keep your stark white walls for just a bit longer.

1. Start with Art

The easiest way to add a touch of style to white walls is by complementing it with art pieces. Choose bold, contrasting pieces for some unusual drama and impact. Or you can make it more homely and heartwarming by using your kids’ artwork to personalize a room, a meaningful yet cost-saving method. All these will get your guests complimenting you on your artsy abode in no time.

2. Add a Pop of Colour

Do you have a favourite colour in mind? Instead of clumsily splashing the entire house with that one colour, use it as an accent piece for a sophisticated finish. A bright yellow armchair against a muted couch, a yellow drawer on your glossy white cabinet; the contrast against crisp white walls will elevate the space instantly.

3. Go Au Naturel

Plain white walls can look cold and uninviting. To prevent that, try finding inspiration from nature. Adding a potted plant in each room creates warmth to the space and is visually pleasing for tired eyes. Complement this with natural wood elements to achieve a serene ambience for a home that is perfect for relaxing.

4. Explore Textures

An ingenious way to stylize white walls is to experiment with textures. A great way to reduce the plainness of a white wall, elements such as exposed brick walls lend a classic charm to a space, changing a flat, one-dimensional wall into an interesting focal point as you enter the room. An elegance style with a touch of chic in it!

5. Pattern Play

Or you can choose to be bold and invest in perforated wall panels. The feminine patterns on the panels, accentuated with delicate Chinese porcelain create a whimsical yet elegant effect to the entire home. Exquisite pieces like a marbled carpet also works well to ground the room, amplifying the classy grandeur of the house.

6. Let There Be Light

White also acts as a diffuser to create a soft natural glow in the home, achieving a light, airy quality that is great for winding down. Combine your white walls with the natural light to obtain a house that is perfect for a good day rest!
