First, we love the first room with its association of white walls, wooden floors and home accessories with natural accents. This is probably the key to make your white living room warmer : use wicker baskets, floor seats and lamp shades. Boho home accessories are a really great choice for this.
Then, if you want a real milky-hued home, use on your wooden floor some white floor paint. It’s a good way to maximize the light in the room. But for a more inviting and cozy feel, you need to add some pattern. A rug is perfect for that. Choose one with a natural or earthy color for a warmer and deeper living room decor.
Is there anything nicer than a black and white combo ? If it’s a small space, keep it mostly white to make the room feel more spacious, then accent with black furniture and accessories as it has been done in the third living room. We really love the contrast between the white walls, doors, sofa, floor lamp and the modern black coffee table.
Finally, if you don’t want something too boring, just add some touches of colors in your living room decor. It’s really simple and you can change the color palette as often as you want. Winter is coming ? Put some red and green notes on your sofa or on your white walls. During summer, use beige or pastel colors to refresh your room.
