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.


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

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”
