Vintage Living-White Wall Ideas

White walls have made a huge comeback and they aren’t just for people who can’t commit to color anymore. White walls set a calm, uncomplicated backdrop for any design aesthetic and makes for a real style statement. I have been wanting to make the jump myself, but like most trends, I like to see how it sits with me for a while before I fully commit. After sitting for a few months on this fresh perspective, I am slowly making some changes. Whether you paint an entire room white or just a focal wall, it is a welcome change that feels bright & cheerful. It’s often those simple changes, that give us a renewed sense of love for our homes & spaces. Being a visual person myself, I thought I would share some of my favorite white spaces, that will inspire you to see color in a whole new light.

Layering white walls with a contrasting wall makes a bold statement and still gives a sense of renewel. Adding in vintage finds, with warm patinas also compliments this color palette.

Using warm, earthy tones against more white, with pops of color & pattern creates a cozy retreat that is both inviting and stylish. I can’t help but love this buffalo art set against this crisp backdrop, it really showcases this statement piece.

White walls will flatter any color scheme. Layering neutrals, with warm wood tones will compliment the white and give a fresh farmhouse feel.

Using white, with pops of bold color and pattern is also visually appealing and makes a big statement. Even when using bright color choices, you can see how different styles also work seamlessly with this fresh hue.

You can also curate your own gallery wall, set against white it offers a fresh perspective that expresses originality. Combine that with some vintage accents, like this sliding barn door and it can highlight your personal style in a whole new way.

  6. I like the white. I have a smaller house 1452 sf. All the walls throughout are white except the grasscloth in the living area. The other half of the great room (kitchen/dining) is white paper with the smallest, lightest blue print on it, and one br has white paper with very light pink and blue florals on it. It feels roomy and I need the lightness for my aging eyes. I even did the back of the house, Brs and hall and trim in white with white blinds. I think it makes it feel spacious and cheery. I recall when white was every where when homes were smaller. I like your floors as well.
