White walls just do not get old. When the right decor is layered in it becomes so fresh and chic.

Creamy off-white has the same effect. I love this slightly minimalist collection of dishes.

White really is the queen of wall colors in my opinion. It can work for almost any style. It allows the furniture and accessories to do almost all the talking. It won’t clash with anything or start to feel outdated over time. I do think white works best in rooms with a fair amount of light, especially natural light. And it must be well decorated and lived-in, otherwise it can feel unfinished.

It seems most people I know think it’d be a little weird to paint a wall white, that it’s boring or a missed opportunity to use a color you like. I might have agreed several years ago but there’s just no denying that so many of the interior design shots I love feature white walls. The only white in my home currently is in the dining room, and it’s only white (very light gray really) above the chair rail. Below the chair rail is a near-black. It’s my favorite paint in the condo easily. But I do hope to try an all white room one day! Like I said earlier it doesn’t have to be a true, pure white. Take a look at any paint manufacturer’s colors and you’ll see a dizzying amount of “white” paint options to choose from!
