4 Fun Ways to Add Pops of Color to a White Room

Did you read our last blog article? If not, you can click on over here and take a look.

The short version is that we discussed how picking white interior paint isn’t often all that easy, especially since there is an almost endless parade of options to choose from. We offered a few practical tips for finding just the right white for your home, taking factors like levels of lighting into consideration.

Today, let’s assume that you have filled your room with the perfect crisp, clean white. It’s fresh, stylish, and looking just right, but now you’d like to add a little extra color here and there. You know, just for variety and contrast.

Where do you begin?

Strategically Adding Bits of Color to Your White Space

Bright Decorations

Whether it’s through bright pillows, pottery, or throw blankets, using decorations to add color can yield stunning results. The other benefit to this tactic is that you can easily swap out and update your look; it’s as easy as replacing a piece of decor.

Artwork

You can certainly add color to your walls by painting them (this is near and dear to our hearts!), but you also can utilize artwork if you want to maintain a predominantly white room. Like dishes and decor, artwork can be easily swapped out or removed depending on your mood/taste, but it can add a lot of character and style.

Paint Your Ceiling

Many homeowners assume their ceilings need to be white, but that’s actually just not true. Adding color to your ceiling can be beautiful! Just be sure to avoid too dark of a color if the room is smaller or natural light is scarce, otherwise it can feel a little like a lid was snapped over it.

Never Underestimate Floral Arrangements

Why not keep things fresh with flowers? A small arrangement on a coffee table adds vitality to the room, and beautiful pops of natural color.

Customer Reviews

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”
