It’s never too late to bring symmetry to your bedroom, especially when you’re after a soothing space in a white bedroom. But no need to complicate things – two matching wood bedside tables and a wool rug to add warmth, two swing arm lamps to add reading light.

A neutral rug is a great way to ground the space and keep your white bedroom from feeling bland. Avoid overly busy or brightly patterned rugs in order not to overwhelm neutral space. But you can also add some small contrast elements to the room for more inviting.
5. Upgrade your lighting
“It’s true painting a bedroom white instantly brightens it up, but it’s even better with good lighting,” Genevieve says. And we couldn’t agree more. Many light sources you can use to brighten your white bedroom. From simple things such as light fixtures, plug-in sconces, and standard lamps, to some more extensive light sources like chandeliers. In this bedroom, the homeowner used nightstands, blinkers, and a chandelier to create personality to the bedroom.

While horizontal shiplap is used traditionally, you can flip and install it vertically instead. That’s actually work in a small bedroom. Vertical planks wall create the illusion of height and draw the eyes upward.

14. Sprinkle in Color Conservatively
A white bedroom doesn’t mean an all-white bedroom. But, to prevent losing the soft, neutrals feel of an all-white bedroom, the homeowner starts with creams, beige, and wood tones. You can also layer with tobacco browns, soft denim, or deep indigo blues and heather grays.
15. Incorporate Calming Beige
Keep your bedroom from feeling cold by complementing beige. A beige headboard, pillows, couches, and a gray rug act as accents to the room.

As we suggested earlier, color is definitely not off-limits in a white bedroom. Some shades of blue are the same characteristics as beige color when paired with a white bedroom. Not only that, some deep blue things such as pillows and blankets can also bring depth and rest.
17. Try a pop of orange
Burnt or rusty orange is a nice color to represent your personality. Need only a little orange in furnishings such as pillows, fabrics, chandeliers, and drapes to play well with a simple white color like this bedroom is.
“I ordered that chandelier from CB2 and had it painted orange once I had selected the fabrics. I also love the orange fringe on the drapes. it’s called Big Honker Fringe.” Mary Louise says about her bedroom.
18. Add black accents
To keep an all-white bedroom from feeling dull, too white, or too all one color, a black wrought-iron canopy bed acts as a surprise accent in this bedroom. This high contrast is eye-catching without taking out white bedroom strength.
19. Mix in natural elements
Despite plants being an effective way to bring nature to your space. But you can use other natural materials such as a woven rug, wood chairs, and bedside tables instead. That wood tone is still perfect for a white bedroom.
20. Loop in leather details
There are no more accents for leather in a darkroom but in a crisp white room, they are opposite. They can give the space an elegant and chic feel. That’s demonstrated in this bedroom. A leather headboard and bench are complemented to add a touch of masculinity. Nowadays, you can easy to find a leather pillow but it’s not the ideal material to put the head on because of its stuffiness.
21. Go bold with accessories
With any accessories in a white bedroom, you will never worry about overwhelming the space. Splurge for throws, blankets, or curtains with embellishments and fun details instead of sticking to the simpler options. Fringe, pom-poms, tassels, and embroidery are a few unique features that come to mind, but you could also opt for boldness in pattern and texture.
22. Consider throw pillows
Some accent color throw pillows are a great way to add warmth and more comfort to a white bedroom. You also change out the pillow covers to bring another edge to your bedroom.
23. Try a canopy
When you decide to choose a canopy for the accent of the room, consider some wild ones like this or some pop of color for your intent. But if you’re not ready to upgrade your bed, don’t fret. You can get the same sweet look with a couple of dowel rods, eye hooks, and sheer fabric.
