White furniture in a living room can create space
giving a relaxed and suits both contemporary and traditional styles
resulting in a style that never dates.
White furniture can complement any colour scheme
and style. For an all white living room use different shades of
white on the walls and for fabrics. Add depth and interest with
bold wallpapers in neutral colours.

New England Style
New England style is incredibly simple and this
look will never go out of fashion. For a New England theme, paint
the walls white or a pale blue with white paintwork. Panelling
the walls gives a room lots of character, paint it white to create
a fresh feeling. The thin vertical lines make the room appear
taller by drawing the eyes upwards.
New England style shutters are more expensive, but extremely practical
and desirable and give a fantastic look. If you prefer the more
traditional window dressings, white curtains and blinds are vital
for rooms that lack natural light.
Whitewashed floorboards will instantly brighten your room to give
an airy feeling. Add a neutral rug to add a touch of warmth. See

Decorate the walls with beach themed pictures with a white frame.

Classic Country Style
Even within the generic classic country style
there are many different forms. Generally the classic country
is to mix patterns by using bold prints on fabrics and plain sofas.
The country style can also have a contemporary edge using bright
bold fabrics in pins, orange and limes bring in slightly more
contemporary sofas and chairs. Use this style with plain walls
to avoid the feeling of overcrowding.
Checks and stripes are a far less fussy option than the florals
for a simpler scheme. If mixing stripes, plains and patterns keep
the colour scheme simple to no more than 3 colours.
Layering window dressings generates an intimate atmosphere. Plains
and patterns give the best effect.
Having an open fire is ideal for the country style living room,
but this is not always possible with many living rooms not having
a fireplace. Overcome this problem and create a focal point with
a wood burning stove.
White furniture for the contemporary home
has the advantage of giving the room a classic feel instead of
being faddish and will not date as it can go with all styles.
Putting white furniture against white walls and a contrasting
floor has a dramatic effect. Black is stylish and is easy to co-ordinate
accessories with. Bright, bold colours also work well.
