An all-white room can sometimes feel like a default setting — the look that happens before you go all-out with a crazy new color palette. However, the non-color look goes with everything and is guaranteed to make any space look bigger, brighter, cleaner and more modern. Obviously, a lack of color isn’t great for a fresh summer look, but a classic, monochromatic look might be just the thing to brighten up a room for fall or winter. All you need are a few colorful accessories to keep your seasons feeling fresh. Read on for 18 kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms that will surely inspire you to take a risk to create a dynamic white space you’ll love.

1. Boho Nest: A white couch might not be the best idea for your living room, especially if you’re a self-proclaimed wine lover. However, this room proves that all-white doesn’t necessarily mean stark modern. Accessorize with natural textures like leather, rattan and fur for a boho-chic vibe. (via Adore Magazine)

2. Minimal Bedding: When in doubt, add a houseplant. To keep the clean look feeling fresh, layer up an all-white bedroom with textures and a white nightstand. Throw in a fur rug and gold lamps for a little extra depth to make it cozy. (via Domino)

8. Statement Leaves: Let nature do the talking. Wood is essentially a neutral, so a mismatched table and chair combo is a great way to soften up any room. The statement leaves on this table beautifully blend natural elements with white walls. (via Domino)
