Achieving success with an all white room can be a tricky thing. When done correctly, it can be really beautiful and give a space an airy and soothing feeling. The key to doing a white room the "right" way is all in combining tones and textures. You want to be sure to have varying tones of white, in the paint, fabrics, upholstery, and furniture finishes. Texture variation is just as important. Using various fabrics to incorporate an array of texture in the space will, like varying color tones of white/ivory, give the space interest and complexity despite a monochromatic scheme. Bringing in other elements, such as wood tones and decorative accessories will also add an essential element of interest to your space.
